Present value of insurance policy

If interest rate is increases then the present value of the insurance policy will be decrease and future value will be increases. For example suppose, Earning after twelve years or a Future value is 200 $, years to maintain are 12 and rate of interest is 9.0% then by using the present value formula after calculating the present value will be 71 $.Now if our years and Earning remain same but we increase our rate of interest 9.5% then calculation of present value will be 67$. So we can see as the interest rate increase the present value of invest policy will decreases.

 b)       Future value of insurance policy

If interest rate is increases then the future value of the insurance policy will be increases. for example let suppose if the investment present value of insurance policy is 200$,the interest rate is 9.0% and the duration of year to maintain investment is 12 year then by  calculating its future value,  the Future value is 562$.Now if our years and investment remain same but  we increase our interest rate 9.5 %then after calculation the future value is 594$.which is grater then 562$ previous future value  So as the conclusion we can see as the interest rate increase the future value of insurance policy will also increase The Formula of present
