Solution 7.1

The bond pays annual coupons of 8 per $100 of par value:

0.08 100 = 8.00

The price of the bond per $100 of par is:

mt

y 100

P = CFt 1 + = 8a4 5% + = 110.638

m 1.05 4

Using this price in the formula for modified duration, we have:

mt

y 1 8 2 8 3 8 4 8 4 100 4 100

tCFt 1 + m +

1.05 1.05 2

8( Ia)4 5% +

1.05 4

ModD = =

y 110.638 1.05 110.638 1.05

P1+

m

In order to calculate the present value of the increasing annuity-immediate, we first calculate the present value of

an annuity-due:

1 (1.05)4

a4 5% = (1.05)

= 3.7232

0.05

3.7232 4(1.05)4

( Ia)4 5% = = 8.6488

0.05

Using the present value of the increasing annuity-immediate, we have:

4 100

8( Ia)4 5% +

ModD = 1.05 4 = 8 8.6488 + 329.0810 = 3.428

110.638 1.05 116.1697

Financial Mathematics Solutions to practice questions Chapter 7

Solution 7.2

We are not given the compounding frequency of the yield, but it is not needed to answer the question.

Using the relationship between price and modified duration, we have:

%P ( y )( ModD)

%P (0.001)(7.02)

%P 0.702%

When the yield increases to 6.10%, the price declines by 0.702%:

114.72(1 0.00702) = $113.915

Solution 7.3

Since there is only one cash flow, we can calculate the modified duration without calculating the price of the

bond:

mt

y

tCFt 1 + m 20(1, 500)(1.02)40 20

ModD = = 40

= = 19.608

y (1, 500)(1.02) (1.02) 1.02

P1+

Solution 7.4

The bond pays semiannual coupons of $4 per $100 of par value, and the semiannual yield is 5%:

0.08 0.10

100 = 4 and = 0.05

The price of the bond per 100 of par is:

96.4540 1.05 101.2768

Solution 7.5

The Macaulay duration of a zero-coupon bond is equal to its maturity:

tm 1215

y 0.07

tCFt 1 + m 15 2, 000 1 +

12

MacD = = 1215

= 15

P 0.07

2, 000 1 +

12

Solutions to practice questions Chapter 7 Financial Mathematics

Solution 7.6

The modified duration is the Macaulay duration divided by one plus the periodic yield:

MacD 15

ModD = = = 14.913

y 0.07

1+ m 1 +

12

Solution 7.7

The modified duration is 9.8844:

MacD 10.774

ModD = = = 9.8844

y 1.09

1 +

m

%P ( y )( ModD)

%P ( 0.0005)(9.8844)

%P 0.494%

If the yield falls to 8.95%, then the price increases by approximately 0.494%:

81.12(1 + 0.00494) = $81.52

Solution 7.8

Since the coupon rate is equal to the bonds yield, the bond is priced at par, and the Macaulay duration is

therefore equal to the present value of a 30-year annuity-due:

We can either work annually or half-yearly:

Annually

( )

2 30

( m) (2) i(2) (2) 1 1.03

MacD =

a =

a = 1+ a30 = 1.03 = 14.253

n 30 2 0.06

Half-yearly

a =

1+ a60 = ( 1.03 ) = 14.253

30 2 2 2

0.03

The modified duration is thus:

MacD 14.253

ModD = = = 13.838

y 1.03

The monthly effective yield is = 0.01. The amount of the monthly payment is denoted below as Pmt .

Notice that we do not need to determine the amount of the monthly payment to calculate the duration. The first

monthly cash flow occurs at time t = , the second monthly cash flow occurs at time t = , and so on:

Solution 7.10

The effective duration is 8.81:

P P+ 130.65 125.02

EffD = = = 8.81

P0 (2 y ) 127.79(2)(0.0025)

Solution 7.11

The effective duration is:

P P+ 101.6931 100.8422

EffD = = = 4.20

P0 (2 y ) (101.2666)(2)(0.0010)

Solution 7.12

The effective convexity is 20.74:

EffC = 2

= = 20.74

( y ) P0 (0.001)2 (101.2666)

Solution 7.13

Since the yield increases, the percentage change in price is negative:

( y ) 2

%P ( y )(Duration) + (Convexity)

2

(0.0075)2

= (0.0075)(4.20) + (20.74)

2

= 0.0315 + 0.0005833

= 3.09167%

The new price is $98.14:

New price = (1 0.0309167)101.2666 = 98.14

Solutions to practice questions Chapter 7 Financial Mathematics

Solution 7.14

The general expression for the price of a perpetuity-immediate paying $1 at the end of each year is:

1

P( y ) =

y

where:

y = annual effective yield

It is a simple matter to find the first and second derivatives of the price of the perpetuity-immediate:

1

P '( y ) =

y2

1

P ''( y ) = 2

y3

Now we can derive general expressions for the modified duration and convexity of the perpetuity:

P '( y ) 1

ModD = =

P( y ) y

P ''( y ) 2

Convexity = =

P( y ) y 2

Interestingly, the modified duration of a perpetuity-immediate paying $1 at the end of each year is equal to its

price:

1

Price = = 20.0

0.05

1

ModD = = 20.0

0.05

2

Convexity = = 800.0

0.052

Solution 7.15

When there is just one cash flow, the current yield of the bond is not needed in order to calculate Macaulay

duration and Macaulay convexity:

MacD =

tCFt e t =

5CF5 e 5

=5

P CF5 e 5

MacC =

t 2CFt e t =

25CF5 e 5

= 25

P CF5 e 5

For zero-coupon bonds, the Macaulay convexity is the square of the Macaulay duration.

Financial Mathematics Solutions to practice questions Chapter 7

Solution 7.16

Since the yield increases, the percentage change in price is negative:

( y ) 2

%P ( y )(Duration) + (Convexity)

2

(0.0063)2

= (0.0063)5.35 + (39.19)

2

= 0.033705 + 0.000778

= 3.29%

Solution 7.17

The present value of the assets and the present value of the liabilities are:

PVA = 27, 919.74 + 27, 919.74 = 55, 839.48

100, 000

PVL = = 55, 839.48

1.0610

The first immunization condition, that the present value of the assets must equal the present value of the

liabilities, is satisfied.

The Macaulay duration of the assets and the Macaulay duration of the liabilities are:

MacDA = 0.5(5) + 0.5(15) = 10

MacDL = 10

The second immunization condition, that the duration of the assets be equal to the duration of the liabilities, is

satisfied.

In Solution 7.15, we saw that the Macaulay convexity of a zero-coupon bond is equal to the square of its Macaulay

duration. Therefore, the Macaulay convexities are:

Convexity of 15-year bond = 152 = 225

MacC A = 0.5(25) + 0.5(225) = 125

MacCL = 10 2 = 100

The third immunization condition, that the convexity of the assets must be greater than the convexity of the

liabilities is satisfied.

The companys position is therefore immunized.

Solutions to practice questions Chapter 7 Financial Mathematics

Solution 7.18

The total amount invested must equal the present value of the liability:

100, 000

PVL = = 56,742.69

1.12 5

The Macaulay duration of the liability is 5:

MacDL = 5

If x% of the $56,742.69 is invested in the 4-year bond and (1 x%) is invested in the 10-year bond, we use

immunization condition #2 to solve for x% :

MacDA = MacDL

( x%)4 + (1 x%)10 = 5

6x% = 5

x% = 83.33% and 1 x% = 16.67%

Checking to see if immunization condition #3 is satisfied:

MacCL = 52 = 25

MacC A = 0.8333(4)2 + 0.1667(10)2 = 30

Since the convexity of the assets is greater than the convexity of the liabilities, the companys position is

immunized.

To establish its asset portfolio, the company invests $47,285.58 in the 4-year bond and $9,457.12 in the 10-year

bond:

0.8333 56,742.69 = 47, 285.58

0.1667 56,742.69 = 9, 457.12

Solution 7.20

Modified duration is the derivative of price with respect to the yield, divided by price:

P '( y ) 700

ModD = = =7

P( y ) 100

We are not told the compounding frequency of the 8% yield. When we are not given the compounding frequency

of a yield, it is customary to assume that it has the same compounding frequency as the coupons. When, as in this

case, we are also not given the compounding frequency of the coupons, it is customary to assume that the yield is

an annual effective yield:

MacD MacD

ModD = 7 = MacD = 7(1.08) = 7.56

y 1.08

The Macaulay duration is 7.56.
