Answer #1

**Answer
:**

**1)** **Yield to maturity ( YTM )
:**

Given that,

Face value = 1000

Annual coupon rate = 8%

Years to maturity = 10

Value of bond = 1100

Payment frequency = 2

Now,

To find YTM , we can use RATE function in Excel as follows :

NPER = 10 * 2 = 20

PMT = 1000 * 8% / 2 = 40

PV = -1100

FV = 1000

Therefore,

YTM =RATE(NPER,PMT,PV,FV)*2

=RATE(20,40,-1100,1000)*2

**YTM = 6.62%**

**2) Yield to Call ( YTC ) :**

Given that,

Call value = 1050

Annual coupon rate = 8%

Years to maturity = 5

Value of bond = 1100

Payment frequency = 2

Now,

To find YTC , we can use RATE function in Excel as follows :

NPER = 5 * 2 = 10

PMT = 1000 * 8% / 2 = 40

PV = -1100

FV = 1050

Therefore,

YTC =RATE(NPER,PMT,PV,FV)*2

=RATE(10,40,-1100,1050)*2

**YTC = 6.49%**
