# A bond with 5 years to maturity and a coupon rate of 6% has

A bond with 5 years to maturity and a coupon rate of 6% has a face value of \$20,000.
Interest (coupon payment) is paid annually
a. If an investor's required rate of return is 7% on this bond, how much is this investor
willing to pay for this bond?
b. Please use this bond as an example, to explain the relationship that exists between
the following elements of a bond: coupon rate, required rate of return (YTM), par value,
and bond price.
HiCustomerbr />
a) If an investor's required rate of return is 7% on this bond he would be willing to pay 19179.96.

b) If required rate of return(YTM) is greater than coupon rate then bond price is less than face value and if required rate of return(YTM) is less than coupon rate then bond price is more than the face value of the bond. Since in the current case YTM of 7% is greater than coupon rate of 6% hence the bond value is 19179.96 which is less than the face value.

Suppose you bought the following bond for \$1100. The bond has a face value of \$1000,
annual coupon rate 10% payable annually, and matures in 2 years. Please answer the
following questions:
a. What is the bond's current yield?
b. What is the bond's yield to maturity?
c. Exactly one year later, interest rate rises to 15% due to inflation increase. If your
holding period is only one year, i.e., you have to sell the bond after one year, what price
would you end up selling at? What will be your rate of return for holding this bond for one
year?
d. Please use this bond as an example to explain the interest rate risk when investing in
bonds.
