Question

A perpetuity will make payments of $100,000 every third year, with the first payment occurring three years from now. The annual nominal interest rate convertible quarterly is 8%. Find the present value of this perpetuity.

(I did this problem, just want to check if I did it correctly because the answer doesn't look right to me, not sure what I did incorrectly, I got PV = 372,800.47)

Answer #1

Your answer is pretty close. Here is the detailed solution for reference:

The nominal interest rate convertible quarterly= 8%

To arrive at the effective interest rate, we use

i= (1+(i^p)/p)^p, where p= the number of periods i.e. 4 in this case

thus, i= 8.24%

Now, since the payments are made **every three
years,** starting three years from today, the effective
interest rate every three years will be calculated as:

[(1+8.24%)^3] - 1 =0.268129 i.e 26.81%

To find the PV, simply divide the value of the perpetuity by the effective interest rate every 3 years

So,

**1,00,000/.268129 = 3,72,955.148**

Thus, the present value of this perpetuity is
**$3,72,955.148**

As per The Economist (June 24, 2017), the Argentinian
government issued its first 100‐year bond, with cash flows
denominated in dollars. The bond thus now matures in,
for simplification purposes, 97 years. The current bond has a
$1,000 face value and the following monthly, end‐ofmonth
coupon payments: $10/ month for 47 years, $30/month for 20 years,
and then $50/month for 30 years. As
Argentina has defaulted on its bonds six times in the past 100
years, you decide that a...
