1 The nominal rate of interest per annum convertible quarterly is 5%.

(iii) the equivalent nominal rate of discount per annum convertible monthly. [2]

[Total 4]

Calculate the present value of a payment stream paid at a rate of 100 per annum,

monthly in advance for 12 years. [4]

4 The following table shows the cashflows paid into a fund on three different dates,

together with the value of the fund on each date immediately before the cash flow

takes place. There were no other cashflows except on the dates shown.

Cash flow (m) 23 43 32

During 2014, the rate of return on the fund was 10% per annum effective.

(ii) Calculate, showing all workings, the annual effective time weighted rate of

return on the fund over the two-year period from 1 January 2014 to 1 January

2016. [3]

[Total 4]

1 January 2015. An investor bought the bond to provide a yield to maturity of 5% per

annum convertible half yearly. On a particular date the borrower defaulted, repaying

80% of the capital to all bondholders. The investor obtained a rate of return until the

date of default which was equivalent to a force of interest of 4.8% per annum.

CT1 S20162

6 At the beginning of 2015 a 182day commercial bill, redeemable at 100, was

purchased for 96 at the time of issue and later sold to a second investor for 97.50.

The initial purchaser obtained a simple rate of interest of 3.5% per annum before

selling the bill.

(i) Calculate the annual simple rate of return which the initial purchaser would

have received if they had held the bill to maturity. [2]

(ii) Calculate the length of time in days for which the initial purchaser held the

bill. [2]

(iii) Calculate the annual effective rate of return achieved by the second investor.

[2]

[Total 6]

7 A nine-month forward contract was issued on 1 April 2015 on a share with a price of

1.10 at that date. Dividends of 0.10 per share were expected on 1 July 2015,

1 October 2015 and 1 January 2016.

(i) Calculate, showing all workings, the forward price assuming a risk-free rate of

interest of 8% per annum convertible half-yearly and no arbitrage. [4]

(ii) Explain why you do not need to use the expected price of the share at the time

the forward matures in the calculation of the forward price. [2]

[Total 6]

8 Three bonds, each paying annual coupons in arrear of 4% and redeemable at par,

reach their redemption dates in exactly one, two and three years time, respectively.

The price of each bond is 96 per 100 nominal.

(i) Calculate the gross redemption yield of the three-year bond. [3]

(ii) Calculate, showing all workings, the one-year and two-year spot rates of

interest implied by the information given. [3]

(iii) Calculate the forward rate of interest applicable over the second year. [2]

(iv) Explain whether the three-year spot rate will be higher than or lower than the

three-year gross redemption yield. [2]

[Total 10]

9 An insurance company has just written single premium contracts that require it to

make payments to policyholders of 10,000,000 in five years time. The total single

premiums paid by policyholders amounted to 8,000,000.

The insurance company is to invest the premiums in assets that have an uncertain

return. The return from these assets in year t, it, is independent of the returns in all

previous years with a mean value of 5.5% per annum effective and a standard

deviation of 4% per annum effective. (1 + it) is lognormally distributed.

(i) Calculate, deriving all necessary formulae, the mean and standard deviation of

the accumulation of the premiums over the five-year period. [9]

from the investment in the assets suggested in part (i). Instead, the director suggests

investing in fixed interest securities with a guaranteed return of 4% per annum

effective.

(ii) Set out the arguments for and against the directors position. [3]

[Total 12]

10 A particular charity invests its assets in a fund on which it has a target rate of return of

8% per annum effective. From time-to-time, the charity also invests in projects that

help achieve its charitable objectives whilst providing a rate of return. Projects that

are accepted by the charity must fulfil each of the following criteria:

1. a minimum annual effective internal rate of return of 2% less than the target return

on the investment fund.

providing loans to farmers in low-income countries to help them develop better

resilience against poor weather conditions. The details are as follows:

The project involves making loans of 1m at the start of each year for three years,

the first loan being made at the beginning of 2017.

The loans will be paid back from the extra income obtained by the farmers from

the beginning of 2020.

The repayments in each year will be through level monthly instalments paid in

advance with the rate of payment of the instalments increasing by 1% per year for

10 years after which the payments stop.

The charity will also incur costs at the end of each of the years in which income is

received of 50,000 per annum.

CT1 S20164

(i) Explain why, in general, the payback period is not an appropriate decision

criterion for an investment project. [2]

(ii) Determine which of the three criteria used by the charity are met in this case.

[12]

[Total 14]

11 The government of a heavily indebted country has a range of bonds currently in issue.

These include bonds with nominal amounts outstanding of 4bn and 5bn with terms

to redemption of exactly three years and ten years respectively from the current time.

Both bonds pay annual coupons in arrear of 4%. The government is negotiating a

restructuring of its debt portfolio and proposes to transform the three and ten year

bonds into perpetuities paying an annual coupon of 5% in arrear. The yield curve is

currently flat with gross redemption yields at 6% per annum effective.

(i) Calculate, showing all workings, the duration of the current portfolio of three-

year and ten-year bonds. [7]

(ii) Calculate, showing all workings, the duration of the proposed portfolio of

bonds. [4]

The governments objective is that the present value of the proposed portfolio of

bonds will be 80% of the present value of the current portfolio of three-year and ten-

year bonds.

(iii) Determine the nominal amount of the new bonds that the government will

have to issue to achieve the objective. [2]

[Total 13]

12 The force of interest, (t), is a function of time and at any time t (measured in years) is

given by:

0.03 for 0 t 10

(t ) at for 10 t 20

bt for t 20

(iii) Calculate the equivalent annual effective rate of discount from time 0 to time

28. [2]

A continuous payment stream is paid at the rate of e0.04t per annum between t = 3 and

t = 7.

(iv) (a) Calculate, showing all workings, the present value of the payment

stream.

(b) Determine the level continuous payment stream per annum from time

t = 3 to time t = 7 that would provide the same present value as the

answer in part (iv)(a) above. [8]
