Answer A

Answer B

Answer C

Answer D

1. A U.S. bank raises $200 million in liabilities, that pay an interest rate of 4.0%, in order to fund

two investments: $100 million invested into U.S. dollar denominated assets and the remaining

$100 million invested into Euro- (EUR) denominated assets. The expected net (of default risk)

yield on the USD assets is 6.0% and the net yield on the EUR-denominated assets is 8.0%. In this

way the expected return on the investment (ROI) is 3.0% as the difference between the blended

ROA of 7.0% (average of 6.0% and 8.0%) and the cost of funds (COF) of 4.0%. However, the bank

is un-hedged with respect to currency risk. At the beginning of the year, the exchange rate is

EUR/USD $1.40. At the end of the year, the exchange rate has moved to EUR/USD $1.26. The

nominal returns for the year were exactly as expected.

What is the one-year realized ROI if we account for the currency shift?

Note #1: please assume all interest rates are effective annual rates (EARs). For example, an

effective annual rate of 8.0% is equivalent to 8.0% per annum with (discrete) annual

compounding.

Note #2: In the initial exchange rate of EUR/USD $1.40, EUR is the base currency and USD is the

quote currency, so this quote format refers to USD $1.40 per one unit of EUR.

a)

b)

c)

d)

ROI of -4.30% because the EUR appreciated against the USD

ROI of +1.90% because the EUR depreciated against the USD

ROI of -2.40% because the EUR depreciated against the USD

2. Assume the riskfree rate is 4% and the expected (overall) market return is 12% with 20%

volatility. Our portfolio (P) has volatility of 30% and a correlation with the market of 0.4.

According to CAPM, what is the portfolio's expected return?

a)

b)

c)

d)

6.0%

8.8%

11.2%

12.0%

3. Assume two assets, A and B. Asset A closed trading yesterday with daily volatility of 1.0% and

daily return of +1.0%; i.e., sigma A(n-1) = 1.0% and return A(n-1) = 1.0%. Asset B closed trading

yesterday with daily volatility of 2.0% and a daily return of +2.0%; i.e., sigma B(n-1) = 2.0% and

return B(n-1) = 2.0%. Yesterday's correlation (coefficient) between the two assets was 0.40. If

we use the EWMA model with a lambda parameter of 0.90 to update covariance, what is today's

updated estimate of the correlation between the assets?

a)

b)

c)

d)

0.38

0.40

0.44

0.46
