Topic for Discussion: “Present Value and Discounting?”
GDB Question:
Few days ago, the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) has raised interest rate up to 9.5 percent from 9.0 percent, in line with requirements set by the International Monetary Fund.

Present Value Versus Future Value?
Present value is a fundamental concept in the world of finance. It refers to the current worth of a future stream of cash flows or amount of money at a given rate of return. Future value is the dollar amount that the investor will receive in the future. Analysts arrive at present value through the discounting process -- discounting future value. The concept helps you make financial decisions, especially when you are considering expected future returns.
JUST IRRELEVANT
Discount Rate:
This is the interest rate that is used to convert between future values and present values. Note that the process of calculating present values is often referred to as “discounting” because present values are generally less than future values.
a) Present value of insurance policy
As the interest rate will increase present value of insurance policy will also increase:
suppose:
investment in insurance policy( present value) = 100 $
Years to maintain investment = 10
Rate of interest is 9.0%
then by calculating its future value we find:-
Future value is 237$
Now if our years and investment remain same but we increase our rate of interest then calculation will be ass below:-
investment in insurance policy( present value) = 100 $
Years to maintain investment = 10
Rate of interest is 9.5%
then by calculating its future value we find:-
Future value is 248$
So we can see as the interest rate increase the future value of investment(insurance policy) will also increase.
b) Future value of insurance policy
As the interest rate will increase future value of insurance policy will Decrease:
suppose:
Earning after ten years ( Future value) = 100 $
Years to maintain investment = 10
Rate of interest is 9.0%
then by calculating its Present value we find:-
Present value is 42 $
Now if our years and Earning remain same but we increase our rate of interest then calculation will be ass below:-
Earning after ten years ( Future value) = 100 $
Years to maintain investment = 10
Rate of interest is 9.5%
then by calculating its future value we find:-
Future value is 40$
So we can see as the interest rate increase the present value of invest policy will decrese
