Further assume that current market interest rates are at 9.00% per annum. Show work. (a.) Calculate the duration of the bank’s bonds. (b.) What is this bank’s duration gap? Is the bank asset- or liability-sensitive? (c.) If interest rates are expected to decrease to 8.00%, approximate the bank’s change in net worth in millions.
