Answer #1

Given that.

initial equity index = 1987

After 90 days index = 2015

90 days LIBOR . = 2.6%

180 days LiBOR. =2.20%

Calculation of present value of floating rate after 90 days

90 days LIBOR = 1+0.026(90/360) =1.0065

180 days LIBOR = 1+0.022(180/360) = 1.011

PV = 1.011/1.0065 = 1.0044709388

Calculation of present value of equity index after 90 days

PV = (2015/ 1987) = 1.0140915953

The value of the swap to equity return payer would be as follows

Value = 70 millions*(1.0140915953 - 1.0044709388)

= 70 millions*0.0096206565 = $673,446

Hence,option A' is the correct
