#### Presentation Transcript

We will deal with 3 different rates:

iNom = nominal, or stated, or

quoted, rate per year.

iPer= periodic rate.

EAR= EFF% = .

effective annual

rate

• iNom is stated in contracts. Periods per year (m) must also be given. This is also frequently referred to as an Annual Percentage Rate (APR).

• Examples:

• 8%; Quarterly

• 8%, Daily interest (365 days)

• Periodic rate = iPer = iNom/m, where m is number of compounding periods per year. m = 4 for quarterly, 12 for monthly, and 360 or 365 for daily compounding.

• Examples:

8% quarterly: iPer = 8%/4 = 2%.

8% daily (365): iPer = 8%/365 = 0.021918%.

• Effective Annual Rate (EAR = EFF%):

Our bank offers a Certificate of Deposit (CD) with a 10% nominal rate, compounded semi-annually. What is the true rate of interest that they pay annually (the effective annual rate)?

= 0.1025 = 10.25%.

Any PV would grow to the same FV at 10.25% annually or 10% semiannually. In both instances, our money earns 10.25 percent each year.

### For a given rate, more frequent compounding increases returns

12 percent compounded annually

EARA= 12%.

EARs=(1 + 0.12/2)2 - 1= 12.36%.

EARM=(1 + 0.12/12)12 - 1= 12.68%.

EARD(365)=(1 + 0.12/365)365 - 1= 12.75%.

12 percent compounded monthly

12 percent compounded daily

### What is the FV of \$100, if you earn 10 percent compounded semi-annually?

When using semi-annual periods we use the periodic rate:

The nominal rate is never used in calculations!

### Can the effective rate ever be equal to the nominal rate?

• Yes, but only if annual compounding is used, i.e., if m = 1.

• If m > 1, EFF% will always be greater than the nominal rate.

### When is each rate used?

The use of the periodic rate and the effective annual rate is determined by the choice of N. If N is the number of years, the EAR is used. If N is the number of periods (shorterthan 1 year), the periodic rate is used. The nominal rate is not used in calculations. As shown later, the choice of N will be determined by the number of payments (PMT).

Written into contracts, quoted by banks and brokers. Not used in calculations or shown

on time lines.

iNom:

### Nominal, Periodic, or Effective Annual Rate?

• We never use the nominal rate calculating future or present values. We always use either the effective annual rate or the periodic rate of return.

• If PMT is 0, either the periodic rate or the effective rate may be used.

• Ex: Find the present value of \$100 to be received in 5 years. The nominal rate is 6 percent, compounded monthly.Periodic: FV = 100, N = 5*12, I = _______; compute PV= \$74.14E.A.R.:FV = 100, N = 5, I = __________; compute PV= \$74.14

• If PMT has a value, N must equal the number of payments. Since N is determined by the number of payments, we must make I (the interest rate) consistent with how we defined N.

• Ex: Find the present value of \$100 per year for 5 years. The nominal rate is 6 percent, compounded monthly.PMT = 100, N = 5, I = _________; compute PV = \$419.32

• Ex: Find the present value of \$100 per month for 5 years. The nominal rate is 6 percent, compounded monthly.PMT = 100, N = 5*12, I = ________; compute PV = \$5,172.56

### A few other points to note.

• If the rate is 12% compounded monthly, your EAR is 12.6825%, this is used if the N is in number of years.

• If the rate is quoted at 12% compounded monthly, the periodic rate would be 1% (12%/12). The 1% is used if the N is in number of months.

• If the rate is 12% compounded monthly, you cannot divide the 12% by anything besides its number of compounding periods (in this case 12 monthly periods), or you change the interest rate.

### Example

• What is the future value of 4 quarterly payments of \$100 each, given a nominal rate of 12 percent, compounded monthly.

• Note that the quarterly payments and monthly compounding are different, so we have to transform the monthly compounded rate to a quarterly compounded rate. This takes some work.First, find the EAR of the monthly rate:EARM = (1 + 0.12/12)12 - 1= 12.68%.Second, find the nominal rate with quarterly compounding that has an effective annual rate of 12.68%(1 + Inom/4)4 - 1= 12.68%.Inom = 12.12%Third, compute the future value of the paymentsN = 4, I = 12.12/4, PV = 0, PMT = 100, cpt FV = \$418.55
