Question

Someone offers you a security which pays $n at the end of the nth year until forever (i.e., it pays $1 at the end of the first year, $2 at the end of the second year, and so on). If the annually compounded interest rate is 10% per year, what is the fair price of such security?

Answer #1

ANS: $110

Writing down the Present Value (PV) of the perpetuity:

------------------------------------------- Eq. 1

Multiplying by 1.1

**...............................................**Eq.
2

Substracting Eq1 from Eq2, we get

Evaluate the sum of the terms on right as an infinite Geometric Progression with d = 1/1.1

Using sum of infinite GP formula

,

we get

Thus, the fair price of the security is $110

A UK lottery prize pays £10000 at the end of
the first year, £11000 at the end of the second
year, £12000 at the end of the third year, and so
on for 20 years. If this is the only
prize in a lottery, 10,000 tickets are sold, and
you could invest your money elsewhere at 10% interest
rate (compounded annually), how much is each ticket worth,
on average?

(EAR) is 10%. (HINT: put the cash payments on a time line).

Bank A offers a 2-year certificate of deposit (CD) that pays 10
