Before we going to answer of gdb 1st understand the  Present Value Versus Future Value in world of finance. 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.

How to Calculate Present Value?

The formula to figure out present value is: Present Value = Future Value/(1+Interest rate). Example: If you want to make $800 in one year and the interest rate is 5% or .05, present value = $800/1.05). The amount you invest today would have to be $761.90.

How to Calculate Future Value?

Future value is the compounding of interest earned on the present value, or starting amount. Subtract the present value from the future value: Amount of Interest = FV - PV.

When the interest rate increase present value of the policy will be decreased and future value of the policy will be increased.
