In each of the following cases, indicate whether it would be appropriate to buy or sell a futures contract to hedge the appropriate risk. a. A commercial bank plans to issue CDs (borrow) in three months. The bank should sell futures contracts to protect against an increase in interest rates . b. An insurance company plans to buy bonds (invest) in two months. The insurance company should buy futures contracts to protect against a decrease in interest rates. c. A thrift is going to sell Treasury securities it holds in its investment portfolio next month. The thrift should sell futures contracts to protect against an increase in interest rates . d. A finance company has assets with a duration of six years and liabilities with a duration of 13 years. The finance company should buy futures contracts to protect against decreasing interest rates that would cause the value of liabilities to increase more than the value of assets, thus causing a decrease in equity value.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
