This answer was rated:

★★★★★

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.

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.
