“RETURN ON BONDS & SOURCES OF BOND RISK”
Money & Banking students will be enabled to understand:
Luxurious life, who does not wish to live. Nowadays, a good education is essential for such a wishful life. Getting quality education has become a dream that can hardly come true for lower middle class which strives tooth and nail. They put their lives and even their hard earned savings at risk to secure better future for themselves and their coming generations.
Mr. Amjad recently completed his graduation from a local university and now plans to pursue higher studies abroad, Australia. Getting admission and study visa may take thirteen to fifteen months. He has sufficient money that can only help him secure admission, get visa and travel to desired location but cannot pay for accommodation, food and other expenses; therefore requires more money. An idea knocked him to invest the money in hand in some corporate bonds that may earn him high profits(which he actually needs); would sell these bonds without any loss upon the confirmation of admission to pay dues (admission charges, semester charges, travel, boarding and messing) and start working for making his dreams come true.
1. Suppose Mr. Amjad invests money in 12% corporate bonds, after a month, government changes its policy regarding interest rate. How can Mr. Amjad incur loss due to such change?
2. Does the above change (in part 1) link with the liquidity of a bond? Support your answer with logical reasoning.
3. After two months, a banker approaches Mr. Amjad and attempts to convince him to move his money from bonds and invest in bank’s “Mahana Certificates (MCs)”, he claims that MCs are 100% secure and fully insured by the government. How would Mr. Amjad respond?
