The financial system
The Financial System

  • The economy is divided into sectors

    • Production (includes government)

  • Services, products, and money flow between the sectors every day

    • Producers pay wages

    • Workers spend incomes

    • Producers spend revenues

    • Creates a cyclical flowof money

  • Consumption sector

    • Most people do not consume all of their income—they deposit savings and earn a return

  • Production sector

    • Companies need to raise money to finance large, infrequent projects

  • Economy has a need for and a source of $

Savings and investment
Savings and Investment

  • Financial markets channel consumer savings to companies through the sale of financial assets

    • Companies issue securities

    • Consumers purchase securities

The term invest
The Term “Invest”

  • Individuals invest by putting savings into financial assets: stocks, bonds, etc.

  • This makes funds available for business investment


    (Consumer) Savings = (Business) Investment

Raising and spending money in business
Raising and Spending Money in Business

Firms spend two kinds of money

  • Day-to-day funds

  • Large sums needed for major projects

Raising and spending money in business1
Raising and Spending Money in Business

Firms to raise money by:

  • Borrowing money: Debt Financing

  • Selling stock: Equity Financing

Chapter 5 the financial system corporate governance and interest

  • The length of time between now and the end (or termination) of something

    • Long-term projects

      • last over 5-10 years

      • financed with debt (bonds) and equity (earnings/stocks)

    • Short-term projects

      • last less than 1 year

      • financed with short-term funds (bank loans)

    • Process is known as maturity matching

Financial markets
Financial Markets

  • Capital Markets

    • Trade in stocks and long-term debt

  • Money Markets

    • Trade in short term debt securities

      • Federal government issues a great deal of short-term debt

Financial markets primary and secondary markets
Financial Markets: Primary and Secondary Markets

  • Primary Market: Initial sale of a security

    • Proceeds go to the issuer

  • Secondary Market: Subsequent sales of the security

    • Between investors

    • Company not involved

Primary and secondary markets
Primary and Secondary Markets

  • Corporations care about a stock’s price in the secondary market

    • Influences how much money can be raised in future stock issues

    • Senior management’s compensation is usually tied to stock price

Direct and indirect transfers financial intermediaries
Direct and Indirect Transfers, Financial Intermediaries


  • Issuer sells directly to buyers or through an investment bank

  • Investment bank lines up investors and functions as a broker


  • Financial intermediary sells shares in itself and invests the funds collectively on behalf of investors

  • Mutual fund is an example

  • Portfolio is collectively owned

Primary market transactions can occur

Direct and indirect transfers financial intermediaries1
Direct and Indirect Transfers, Financial Intermediaries

Corporate governance
Corporate Governance

  • Corporate governance refers to the relationships, rules and procedures under which businesses are organized and run.

    • Focused on ethics and legality of financial relationships between top managers and the corporations they serve.

    • The idea is connected to the agency problem, which refers to a conflict of interest between executives and stockholders

  • Two major financial crises thus far in the 21st century

    • Stock market crash of 2000 caused by financial reporting fraud

    • Financial crisis of 2008 caused by the subprime mortgage market

Corporate governance executive compensation
Corporate Governance: Executive Compensation

  • The personal wealth of corporate executives is closely tied to stock price

  • The stock market bids prices up and down

  • Current financial performance is the best indication of future performance

Concept connection example 5 1 executive stock options
Concept Connection Example 5-1 Executive Stock Options

Harry Johnson, CEO

  • Salary $2,500,000

  • Bonus 1,500,000


    Plus: Stock option:

  • 200,000 shares @ $20, Market Price now $48.65

    • Option Value:

    • 200,000 x ($48.65 - $20.00) = $5,730,000

  • Total comp = $9,730,000; 59% from options

Moral hazard
Moral Hazard

A situation that tempts people to act in immoral or unethical ways

Concept connection example 5 1 moral hazard of stock based compensation
Concept Connection Example 5-1Moral Hazard of Stock Based Compensation

  • What if Harry can’t exercise his option for another six months?

    • AND some disturbing financial information comes up that will cause the stock’s price to drop by $10.

    • If released, that info will cost Harry $2,000,000

  • Harry is motivated to hold stock price up at any cost until he can exercise his option.

  • Usually means suppressing the damaging information while ordinary investors buy in at inflated price

Two actions were particularly important to the financial crisis

  • Bear- Stearns

  • Lehman Brothers

The crisis is a governance issue
The Crisis is a Governance Issue

  • The financial system created an incentive for dishonesty

    • Make loans regardless of ability to pay

  • The “too big to fail” concept creates a Moral Hazard in banking

    • Executives are rewarded if high risk projects go well

  • Governs conduct on more than 240 issues


  • Interest is the return on debt

    • Primary vehicle is the bond

  • Investor lends money to the bond’s issuer

  • There are MANY interest rates in debt markets

    • Depend on term and risk

    • Rates tend to move


The relationship between interest and the stock market
The Relationship Between Interest and the Stock Market

  • Stock returns and interest on debt instruments are related

    • Stocks and bonds compete for investor’s dollars

      • Stocks offer higher returns but have more risk

      • Investors prefer debt if the expected return is equal

  • Interest rates and security prices move in opposite directions

Interest and the economy
Interest and the Economy

  • Interest rates have a significant effect on the economy

    • Lower interest rates stimulate business and economic activity

      • Debt financed projects cost less if rates are low

        • More projects are undertaken

      • Consumers purchase more houses, cars, etc. when rates are low

Debt markets supply and demand a brief review
Debt Markets: Supply and DemandA Brief Review

  • Interest rates are set by supply and demand

  • Demand curve relates price and quantity of a product that consumers will buy

    • Reflects desires and abilities of buyers at a particular time

    • Usually slopes downward to the right since people buy more when the price of a product is low

Debt markets supply and demand a brief review1
Debt Markets: Supply and Demand A Brief Review

  • A supply curve relates prices with quantities supplied by producers

    • Generally upward sloping to the right since firms will to produce more at higher prices

    • Equilibrium – intersection of supply and demand curves

      • Sets market price and quantity

    • Changing conditions shift supply and demand curves for a new equilibrium

Figure 5 8 supply demand curves for a product or service
Figure 5-8 Supply & Demand Curvesfor a Product or Service

Supply and demand for money
Supply and Demand for Money

  • In the debt market

    • Lenders represent supply

    • Borrowers represent demand

  • The price represents the interest rate

  • Debt securities are bills, notes and bonds

The determinants of supply and demand
The Determinants of Supply and Demand

  • Demand for borrowed funds depends on:

    • Opportunities available to use the funds

    • Attitudes of people and businesses about using credit

The determinants of supply and demand1
The Determinants of Supply and Demand

  • Supply of loanable funds depends on the time preference for consumption of individuals

  • A decrease in the preference for consumption will lead to an increase in loanable funds

  • Constant changes shift supply and demand curves

The components of an interest rate
The Components of an Interest Rate

  • Interest rates include base rates and risk premiums

  • Interest rate represented by the letter k

    • k = base rate + risk premium

The components of an interest rate1
The Components of an Interest Rate

  • Components of the Base Rate

    • Base rate = kPR + INFL

    • The pure interest rate plus expected inflation

      • Rate people lend money when no risk is involved

    • Pure interest rate (kPR) = earning power of money

      • Would exist in the real world if no inflation

The components of an interest rate2
The Components of an Interest Rate

  • The Inflation Adjustment (INFL)

    • Inflation refers to a general increase in prices

    • If prices rise, $100 at the beginning of the year will not buy as much at the end of the year

    • If you loaned someone $100 at the beginning of the year, you need to be compensated for what you expect inflation to be during the year

Risk premiums
Risk Premiums

  • Risk in loans is the chance that the lender will not receive the full amount of principal and interest payments

  • Lenders demand risk premiums of extra interest for risky loans

Different kinds of lending risk
Different Kinds of Lending Risk

  • Bond lending losses can be associated with price fluctuations and the failure of borrowers to repay loans

  • Three sources of risk, each with its own risk premium:

    • Default risk

    • Liquidity risk

    • Maturity risk

Different kinds of lending risk1
Different Kinds of Lending Risk

  • Default Risk (DR)

    • The chance the lender won't pay principal or interest

      • Losses can be as much as the entire amount

    • Investors demand a default risk premium based on the their perception of the borrower’s creditworthiness

      • Considers firm's financial condition and credit record

Different kinds of lending risk2
Different Kinds of Lending Risk

  • Liquidity Risk (LR)

    • Associated with being unable to sell the bond of an little known issuer

    • Debt of small, hard to market firms is “illiquid”

    • Liquidity risk premium is the extra interest demanded by lenders as compensation for bearing liquidity risk

Different kinds of lending risk3
Different Kinds of Lending Risk

  • Maturity Risk (MR)

    • Bond prices and interest rates move in opposite directions

    • Long-term bond prices change more with interest rate swings than short-term bond prices

Putting the pieces together the interest rate model
Putting the Pieces Together:The Interest Rate Model

k = kPR + INFL + DR + LR + MR

k is the nominal or quoted interest rate

  • Model tells what theoretically should be in an interest rate

  • Setting Interest Rates

    • set by supply and demand

    • No one uses the model to set rates

Federal government securities the risk free rate
Federal Government Securities,the Risk Free Rate

  • Federal Government Securities

    • The Federal government issues long-term bonds as well as shorter-term securities

  • Risk in Federal Government Debt

    • No default risk: Can print money to pay off its debt

    • No liquidity risk: It’s easy to sell federal securities

    • Federal debt does have maturity risk

The risk free rate
The Risk-Free Rate

  • Very short term federal securities, Treasury Bills, pay the risk free rate

  • The risk-free rate is approximately the yield on short-term Treasury bills

  • Denoted as kRF

  • Conceptual floor for interest rates

The real rate of interest
The Real Rate of Interest

  • The Real Rate of Interest implies the effects of inflation removed

    • Tells investors whether or not they are getting ahead

    • There are periods during which the real rate has been negative

  • The Real Risk-Free Rate implies that both the inflation adjustment and the risk premium is zero

Concept connection example 5 3 using the interest rate model
Concept Connection Example 5-3 Using the Interest Rate Model

Using the Interest Rate Model, Sunshine Inc. is planning to borrow by issuing three year bonds (notes).

  • The following information is available.

  • 1. The pure interest rate is 2.0%.

  • 2. Inflation will be 3% next year and 4% thereafter.

  • 3. Sunshine’s debt carries a default risk premium of 1.5%.

  • 4. The firm carries a liquidity risk premium of .5%.

  • 5. Maturity risk premiums on three-year debt are 1.0%.

    • a. Estimate the interest rate Sunshine will have to offer.

    • b. Moonlight Ltd. recently issued three-year debt paying 11%. What does the interest rate model imply about Moonlight’s risk relative to Sunshine’s?

Concept connection example 5 3 using the interest rate model1
Concept Connection Example 5-3 Using the Interest Rate Model

SOLUTION: To estimate the interest rate Sunshine will have to offer to sell the bonds (ks).

Calculate INFL, the average inflation rate over the life of the loan.

INFL = (3 + 4 + 4)/3 = 11/3 = 3.67 = 3.7

3 + 4 +4 are the inflation rates for the three years, or the life of this project. Add them together

The 3 is the number of years, or life of the project

  • Then write the interest rate model and substitute for kS.

    • kS = kPR + INFL + DR + LR + MR

    • = 2.0 + 3.7 + 1.5 + .5 + 1.0

    • = 8.7%

Concept connection example 5 3 using the interest rate model2
Concept Connection Example 5-3 Using the Interest Rate Model

  • b. Write the interest rate model for Moonlight treating DR as an unknown, then substitute, and solve for DR.

    • kM = kPR + INFL + DR + LR + MR

    • 11.0 = 2.0 + 3.7 + DR + .5 + 1.0

    • DR = 3.8

Sunshine’s risk premium from assumptions

The debt market seems to be assigning Moonlight a default risk premium of 3.8%, which is (3.8/1.5 ) = 2.5 times as large as Sunshine’s. This implies more risk.

Yield curves the term structure of interest rates
Yield Curves—The Term Structure of Interest Rates

  • A graphic relation between interest rates term

  • The normal yield curve

    • Short-term rates are usually lower than long-term rates – curve slopes up

  • The inverted yield curve

    • Long-term rates are lower than short-term rates – curve slopes down

  • A sustained inverted curve usually signals an economic downturn is ahead

Yield curves the term structure of interest rates1
Yield Curves—The Term Structure of Interest Rates

  • Theories attempt to explain the term structure of interest rates

    • Expectations Theory

      • Today's rates rise or fall with term as future rates are expected to rise or fall

    • Liquidity Preference Theory

      • Investors prefer shorter term securities and must be induced to make longer loans

    • Market Segmentation Theory

      • Loan terms define independent segments of the debt market which set separate rates
