```Time Value of Money
The time value of money is a very important concept in Finance. This section is aimed at
giving you intuitive and hands-on training on how to price securities (e.g., stocks and
bonds), figure out your mortgage payments (or your parents’), calculate the payments on
your dream car, make the lease versus buy decision, and apply time-value-of-money
concepts to a variety of other practical uses. It involves four concepts:
1. Future Value
2. Present Value
3. Future Value of annuity
4. Present Value of annuity
All time value of money problems involve comparisons of cash flows at different dates.
The idea is trading present dollars for future dollar, or vice versa.
Q. Imagine that you have just won the lottery. You are offered two choices: (A) \$1
million today, or (B) \$50,000 at the end of each of the next 20 years. Which will you
take? Why?
A. How many would take (A) \$1 million today? Why?
How many would take (B) \$50,000 at the end of each of the next 20 years? Why?
Drawing a time line of cash flows is useful to organizing information for time-valueof-money problems.
Draw time lines and lay out cash flows.
Fact: For an interest rate of 6%, offer (B) is really worth \$573,496 in terms of
today’s dollars.
Intuition: You could put \$573,496 in the bank today and have exactly enough to
make \$50,000 withdrawals at the end of each of the next 20 years.

FUTURE VALUE AND COMPOUNDING
Definition: The future value is the amount to which an investment will grow after
earning interest.
Example: You deposit \$100 in a bank savings that pays 5% interest compounded
annually. How much would you have at the end of 1 year, 2 years, 5 years,
and n years?

Example
How much are you able to withdraw five years from today if you deposit
\$10,000 at a 6% interest rate compounded yearly?
Example
.
You deposit \$1,000 in a bank paying 8% interest per year. How much money will
you be able to withdraw at the end of 30 years if you leave the account untouched
until then?
A.
1000(1.08)30 = \$10,062 = 1000*FVIF(8%,30)
Example
.
Fifty years ago, your grandfather invested \$2,000 at an interest rate of 5% per year.
How much is it worth today?
A.
2000(1.05)50 = \$22,935 = 2000*FVIF(5%,50)
2
PRESENT VALUE AND DISCOUNTING
Definition:
The present value of a future cash flow is how much it is worth today.
Example
We have already learned how to take a cash flow today and determine its future
value. Can we use this information to take a future cash flow and determine its
value today?
A.
Draw picture of trading rates across time.
Derive PV = Fvn/(1+k)n
Example
How much must be deposited now to be able to withdraw \$13,380, five
years from today if I=6% compounded yearly?
Example
.
You need \$127.63 in 5 years. You can earn 5% per year on your money. How
much do you have to put up today?

n
We are given that FV = 127.63, n=5, k=5%, but we just learned that FVn = PV(1+k)n
Then 127.63 = PV(1.05)5 , PV= 127.63/(1.05)5 = 100
OR
F = PV* FVIF(5%,5)
Example
.
How much do we need to invest today at 7% per year to have \$1,000 in 5 years?
A.
1000/(1.07)5 = \$713 = 1000*PVIF(7%,5)
Example
.
What is \$1,000 to be received 5 years from now worth today if the interest rate is
8% per year?
A.
1000/(1.08)5 = \$680.58 = 1000*PVIF(8%,5)
3
Before moving on, let’s try a few more simple examples to build our intuition:
Example
.
What is the value in 5 years of \$100 invested now at an interest rate of 7% per year?
A.
\$100(1.07)5 = \$140.26 = = 100*FVIF(7%,5)
Example
In qualitative terms, holding all else equal, what happens to the future value of an
investment if the interest rate increases?
A.
The future value increases as the interest rate increases.
Example
.
Confirming intuition, what is the value in 5 years of \$100 invested now at an
interest rate of 10% per year?
A.
\$100(1.10)5 = \$161.05 = 100*FVIF(10%,5)
Example
In qualitative terms, holding all else equal, what happens to the future value of an
investment if the investment horizon is lengthened?
A.
The future value increases as the investment horizon increases.
Example
Confirming intuition, what is the value in 6 years of \$100 invested now at an
interest rate of 7% per year?
A.
\$100(1.07)6 = \$150.07 = = 1000*FVIF(7%,6)
Example

What is the value now of \$2,000 to be received in 8 years if the annual rate of
interest is 9%?

PERPETUITIES
Definition: A perpetuity is a stream of equal payments that lasts forever.
Example: You wish to endow a chair in finance at a business school. If the interest rate
is 10% per year and your aim is to provide \$200,000 a year in perpetuity, how
much must be set aside today? The first payment will be made 1 year from
today.

If you are depositing \$10000 in the bank at the end of each year for the next
four years with a 4% interest rate compounded yearly, how much could you
withdraw from the bank in 4 years from now?

Present Value of an Annuity
Example
What is the PV of receiving \$20000 at the end of each year for the next 4
years if the interest rate is 4% compounded yearly?
or
Suppose your parents wish to deposit enough money now to be able to meet
your tuition and other payments for the next four years of \$20000 per year.
The first tuition payment starts a year from today and the interest rate is 4%
compounded yearly
Example
.
Suppose you inherit \$100,000 and wish to have a steady income over the
next 10 years and you plan to deposit it in the savings account paying 5%
or
Suppose you are shopping for a new car and after all negotiations you make
a deal with the dealer for a price of \$20000. The interest rate is 12%
compounded yearly and the loan is for 5 years. If the first payment occurs at
the end of the first year, what is your yearly payment?
Example
Suppose your uncle is 40 and has a plan to retire at age 60, but his fortune
teller told him that he will live for forty more years. If he would like to
have a steady income of \$150,000 per year after his retirement and the
interest rate will be 8% compounded yearly at that time. How much must
be set aside each year till his retirement to be able to achieve his goal if the
interest rate is now 6% compounded yearly?

at the end of five years. What is the annual interest rate compounded
yearly?
Example
Suppose you can borrow \$27550 right now and repay \$10000 annually at t
he end of each year for three years. What is the interest rate compounded
yearly?

\$50000 after one year, \$20000 after two years, \$40000 after three years and
\$ 10000 after the fourth year if the interest rate is 5% compounded yearly?
Example

the following cash flow: \$30000 after year one, \$20000 after year two,
and then 8 annual payments of \$10000, when the interest rate is 4%
compounded yearly?
Example
What is the present value of receiving 100 per quarter at the end of each
quarter for the next ten years when the interest rate is 12% yearly
compounded quarterly?

Examples:
To complete your last year in business school and then go through law school, you

AMORTIZED LOAN
Example: You have just obtained a 30-year mortgage loan of \$200,000. Assume the
loan has a 12% annual interest rate, (1% per month) and require equal monthly
payments beginning in one month and continuing for 360 months. What will
your monthly payments be? How much is the remaining principal after 1 year,
10 years, and 20 years?
Payment = \$2057.23 =&gt; Payment*PVIFA(1%,360) = 200,000
After one year remaining balance = \$199,274.24 = 2057.23*PVIFA(1%,360-12)
After 10 years remaining balance = \$186,836 = 2057.23*PVIFA(1%,360-120)
After 20 years remaining balance = \$143,390 = 2057.23*PVIFA(1%,360-240)
Example
Borrow \$10000 at 10% to be repaid at the end of each year for the next
three years. What is the payment for year two and the principal payment in
year three?
Example
The price of a car is \$20000. The term of the lease is 2 years and the
interest rate is 12% compounded monthly. What is the monthly payment?

COMPOUNDING PERIODS
Definition:
The effective annual interest rate (EAR) is the annual growth rate of funds
(interest rate) allowing for the effects of compounding.
When comparing interest rates, use effective annual rates.
EAR = (1 + APR/m)m - 1, where m = # of periods per year.
Let’s consider table 3.3 from our text, which assumes an APR of 6%:

A credit card requiring monthly payments carries an APR of 18%. What is
the effective annual interest rate (EAR)?
EAR = (1 + 0.18/12)12 - 1 = (1 + 0.015)12 - 1 = 1.1956 - 1 = 19.56%
Intuition:
If you owe your credit card company \$100, they are charging you 1.5% on
the outstanding balance every month. Suppose you keep the \$100 for one year.
You owe at the end of the year = \$100 (1.015)12 = \$119.56.
Example:
Which of the following interest rate offers is the best if you are thinking of
opening a savings account?
Bank A: 7% compounded annually
Bank B: 6.9% compounded quarterly
Bank C: 6.8% compounded daily
Bank D: 6.75% compounded continuously
Bank A = 7%
Bank B = 7.08%
Bank C = 7.04%
13
Example
Determine how much you must deposit today, January 1, to be able to
withdraw \$100 on July 1, August 1, September 1, and October 1. Assume
that the interest rate is 24% per year compounded monthly.
Example
You just deposited \$20000 into a savings account that pays interest of 12%
per year, compounded semiannually (every six months). What equal dollar
amount can you withdraw from the account semiannually, starting today for
a total of twelve withdrawals, such that you have nothing left in the account
after the twelfth withdrawal?
Example
Suppose you are considering purchasing a new car and you have the
choice between two cars that are identical in every way except that car A
uses gasoline at the rate of 20 miles per gallon and car B uses gasoline at
the rate of 40 miles per gallon. Suppose that you drive 10000 miles each
year, pay all your gasoline bills at the end of each year, throw the car away
at the end of 10 years, and gasoline sells for \$1.30 per gallon for ten years.
How much extra will you be willing to pay for car B over car A if your
opportunity cost is 8%?
Example
On December 31, XYZ COMPANY buys a building for \$60000, payable
15% down and the balance in 20 equal annual installments that are to
include principal plus 10% compound interest on the declining balance.
What are the approximate equal installments?
Example
The price of a car is \$20000. The term of the lease is 2 years and the
interest rate is 12% compounded monthly. What is the monthly payment?
14
Example
A recent advertisement in the financial section of a magazine carried the
following claim: &quot;Invest your money with us at 14% per year, compounded
semiannually, and we guarantee to double your income sooner than you
imagine.&quot; How long would it take to double your money at 14%,
compounded semiannually?
We know that FV = PV (1+r)n
remember r = periodic interest rates
n = # of periods, not # of years
Example: A bank agrees to lend you \$1,000 today in return for your promise to pay back
\$2,773 nine years from today. What rate of interest is the bank charging you?
FV = PV (1+r)n
Example:
0
Suppose now that you remember that no allowance has been made for
growth in salaries, which will probably average about 4% a year.
Therefore, instead of providing \$200,000 a year in perpetuity, you provide
\$200,000 in year 1, 1.04 x 200,000 in year 2, and so on. In this case, how
much do you have to set aside today? (Interest rate is 10%. Refer to page 6
example)
