## The Time Value of Money

www.educorporatebridge.com

## CFA Quantitative Analysis E-Book part 1 of 8

The time value of money (TVM) refers to the fact that \$1 today is worth more than \$1 in the future. This is because the \$1 today can be invested to earn interest immediately. The TVM reflects the relationship between present value, future value, time, and interest rate. The time value of money underlies rates of return, interest rates, re quires rates of return, discount rates, opportunity costs, inflation, and risk. It reflects the relationship between time, cash flow, and an interest rate. There are three ways to interpret interest rate: 1. Required rate of return is the return required by investors or lenders to postpone their current consumption. 2. Discount rate is the rate used to discount the future cash flows to allow for the time value of money (that is, to bring future value equivalent to present value). 3. Opportunity cost is the most valuable alternative investors give up by choosing what they could do with the money. In a certain world, the interest rate is called the risk-free rate. For investors preferring current to future consumption, the risk-free interest rate is the rate of compensation they require to postpone current consumption. For example, the interest rate paid by T-bills is a risk-free rate of interest.

In an uncertain world, there are two factors that complicate interest rates: 1. Inflation: When prices are expected to increase, lenders charge not only an opportunity cost of postponing consumption but also an inflation premium that takes into account the expected increase in prices. The nominal cost of money consists of the real rate (a pure rate of interest) and an inflation rate (a pure rate of interest) and an inflation premium. 2. Risk: Companies exhibit varying degrees of uncertainty concerning their ability to repay lenders. Lenders therefore charge interest rate to incorporate default risk. The return that borrowers pay thus comprises the nominal risk-free rate (real rate + an inflation premium) and a default risk premium.

Compounding is the process of accumulating interest over some period of time. Compounding period is the number of times per year in which interest is paid. Continuous compounding occurs when the number of compounding periods becomes infinite, that is, interest is added continuously.
Discounting is the calculation of the present value of some known future value. Discount rate is the rate used to calculate the present value of some future cash flow. Discounted Cash Flow is the present value today of some future cash flow.

There are three ways to quote interest rates for investments paying interest more than once a year. 1. Periodic interest rate is the rate of interest earned over a single compounding period. For example, a bank may state that a particular CD pays a periodic quarterly interest rate of 3% that compounds 4 times a year. Stated annual interest rate, also called quoted interest rate, is the annual rate of interest that does not account for compounding within the year. It is the annual interest rate quoted by financial institutions, and equal to the periodic interest rate times the number of compounding periods per year. For example, the stated annual interest rate of the above CD is 3% x 4 = 12%. It is strictly a quoting convention, and it does not give a future value directly. Effective annual rate (EAR) is the annual rate of interest that takes full account of compounding within the year. The periodic interest rate is the stated annual interest rate divided by m, where m is the number of compounding periods in one year: EAR = (1 +periodic interest rate)^m-1 note that the higher the compounding frequency, the higher the EAC.

For example, a \$1 investment earning 8%compounded semiannually actually earns8.16%: (1 + 0.08/2)^2 1 = 8.16. The annual interest rate is 8%, and the effective annual rate is 8.16%

Example If the nominal interest rate is 8%, find the effective annual rate with quarterly compounding. Method 1 - By Formula m = 4, EAR = - 1 = 0.0824. The effective interest rate with quarterly compounding is 8.24%. Method 2 - Texas Instruments: You will use the Interest Conversion (ICONV) worksheet 1. Press 2nd ICONV to select the worksheet 2.

When you make a single investment today, its future value that will be received an N year from now is as follows: FVN = PV X (1 + r)N Where

FV = future value at time n PV = present value r = interest rate per period N = number of years

A key assumption of the future value formula is that interim interest earned is reinvested at the given interest rate (r). This is known as compounding.

www.educorporatebridge.com

## CFA Quantitative Analysis E-Book part 1 of 8

In order to receive a single future cash flow N years from now, you must make an investment today in the following amount:

Notice that the future cash flow is discounted back to the present. Therefore the interest rate is called the discount rate. You should be able to calculate PVs and FVs using your calculator, where N = number of periods I/Year = yield in market place or the Required Rate of Return PV = present value PMT = payment amount per period FV = the future value of the investment One can solve for any of the above variables. Just input the other variables and solve for the unknown. Using the calculator on the test will prove to be a very time efficient manner of calculating present values and future values.

Example 1 An analyst invests \$5million in a 5-year certificate of deposit (CD) at a local financial institution. The CD promises to pay 7% per year compounded annually. The institution also allows him to reinvest the interest at the same CD rate for the duration of the CD. How much will the analyst have at the end of five years if his money remains invested at 7% for five years with no withdrawals of interest?

When compounding periods are not annual Some investments pay interest more than once a year. When you solve these problems, make sure that periodic interest rates must correspond to the number of compounding periods in the year. For example, if time periods are quoted in quarters, quarterly interest rates should be used. Whenever the compounding periods are other than annual

Example 2 An analyst invests \$5million in a 5-year certificate of deposit (CD) at a local financial institution. The CD promises to pay 7% per year, compounded semiannually. The institution also allows him to reinvest the interest at the same CD rate for the duration of the CD. .

Note that the answer is greater than when the compounding was annual. This is because interest is earned twice a year instead of only once.
If the number of compounding periods becomes infinite, interest is compounding continuously. Accordingly, the future value N years from now is computed as follows:

4. The Future Value and Present Value of a Series of Equal Cash Flows (Ordinary Annuities, Annuity Dues, and Perpetuities).

## CFA Quantitative Analysis E-Book part 1 of 8

Annuity is a finite set of sequential cash flows, all with the same value. Ordinary annuity has a first cash flow that occurs one period from now (indexed at t = 1). In another word, the payments occur at the end of each period.

## Future value of a regular annuity

FV

Where A = annuity amount N = number of regular annuity payments r = interest rate per period. Present value of a regular annuity

## CFA Quantitative Analysis E-Book part 1 of 8

Annuity due has a first cash flow that is paid immediately (indexed at t = 0). In another word, the payments occur at the beginning of each period. Future value of an annuity due It consists of two parts: the future value of one annuity payment now, and the future value of a regular annuity of (N -1) period. Calculate the two parts and add them together. Alternatively you can use this formula:

Note that, all else equal, the future value of an annuity due is equal to the future value of an ordinary annuity times (1 + r)

www.educorporatebridge.com

## CFA Quantitative Analysis E-Book part 1 of 8

Present value of an annuity due It consists of two parts: an annuity payment now and the present value of a regular annuity of (N - 1) period. Use the above formula to calculate the second part, and add the two parts together. The process can also be simplified to a formula:

Note that, all else equal, the present value of an annuity due is equal to the present value of an ordinary annuity times (1 + r).

Hint: Remember these formulas - you can use them to solve annuity-related questions direct lt, or to double-check your answers given by your calculator A Perpetuity is a perpetual annuity: an ordinary annuity that extends indefinitely. In another word, it is an infinite set of sequential cash flows that have the same value, with the first cash flow occurring one period from now.

This equation is valid for a perpetuity with level payments, positive interest rate r. The first payment occurs one period from now (like a regular annuity). An example of perpetuity is a stock paying constant paying All Rights Reserved. Corporate Bridge www.educorporatebridge.com constant dividends.

Example - Future value of a regular annuity An analyst decides to set aside \$10,000 per year in a conservative portfolio projected to earn 8% per annum. If the first payment he makes is one year from now, calculate the accumulated amount at the end of 10 years. Method 1: Using a formula Identify the given variables: A = 10,000, r = 0.08, N = 10. Identify the appropriate formula: FV = A x {[(1 + r)N - 1] / r} Solve for the unknown: FV = 10,000 {[(1 + 0.08)10 - 1] / 0.08} = \$144,865.

5. The Future Value and Present Value of a Series of Uneven Cash Flows.

## CFA Quantitative Analysis E-Book part 1 of 8

Series of uneven cash flows: the cash flow stream is uneven over many time periods. There is no single formula available to compute the present or future value of a series of uneven cash flows. Present value When we have unequal cash flows, we must first find the present value of each individual cash flow and then sum the respective present values. (Usually with the help of a spreadsheet)

Future value Once we know the present value of the cash flows, we can easily apply time-value equivalence by using the formula to calculate the future value of a single sum of money

Example John wants to pay off his student loan in three annual installments of \$2,000, \$4,000 and \$6,000 respectively in the next three years. How much should John deposit into his bank account today if he wants to use the account balance to pay off the loan? Assume that the bank pays 8% interest, compounded annually.

The additivity principle Dollar amounts indexed at the same point in time are additive. Suppose we are considering two series of cash flows (A and B). The annual interest rate is 5%. We want to know the future value of combined cash flows at t = 3.

We can calculate the future value of each series and add them up. The future value of series A is 100 x 1.052+ 100 x 1.05 + 100 = 315.25, and the future value of series B is 150 x 1.052 + 150 x 1.05 + 150 = 472.875. The future value of A + B is 788.125. Alternatively, we can add the cash flows of each series first, and then find the future value of the combined cash flows: 250 x 1.052 + 250 x 1.05 + 250 = 315.25 = 788.125.

We can use this principle to solve many uneven cash flow problems if we add dollars indexed at the same point in time. Consider a cash flow series, A, with \$100 indexed at t = 1, 2, 3 and 5, and \$0 at t = 4. This series is an almost-even cash flow, flawed only by the missing \$100 at t = 4. How do we find the present value of this series? We can create an annuity B with \$100 indexed at t = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. It's easy to find the present at t 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. It s easy to find the present value of this series. Then we isolate an easily evaluated cash flow B - A: it has a single cash flow of \$100 at t = 4. It's also easy to find the present value of this single cash flow. We then subtract the present value of B A from the present value of B.
