Disussion Topic: Compounding and Annuities

Mr. Ahmed has just retired from a government job and he has received a handsome amount as his gratuity. He has a plan to invest his money received from gratuity for which he is in search of a profitable investment option. One of his friends has suggested him three investment options considering his aim of investment. Mr. Ahmed is not aware of investment dynamics (the risk and return) therefore he needs help from someone to choose among the three available investment options.  Being a student of financial management you are required to help Mr. Ahmed in choosing the best option as an investment for 10 years based on the principle of “time value of money”. Following is the information available about three investment options:

Option 1: Deposit an amount of Rs. 120,000 at beginning of each year for the next 10 years in a saving account at ABC bank which provides 12% interest rate compounded annually.

Option 2: Deposit an amount of Rs. 50,000 at end of each year for the next 10 years in saving account of M Bank which provides 10% interest rate compounded quarterly.

Option 3: Deposit an amount of Rs. 100,000 at end of each year for the next 10 years in a saving account at N&P bank which provides 10% interest rate compounded semi-annually.

Required:

Using a common base of comparison, you are required to help Mr. Ahmed in estimating what will he get in future from the three investment options and which option he should select to get the maximum benefit from the investment. Calculations (formula and detailed working) are mandatory for each investment option. Decision to select the best option should be based on your calculations.

Option 1: Deposit an amount of Rs. 120,000 at beginning of each year for the next 10 years in a saving account at ABC bank which provides 12% interest rate compounded annually.

Solution:

Cash Deposit CCF=120,000

No of years (m*n) =10

Interest rate (i/m)  =12%

Compound annually =Nill

FV=CCF

 

 

Option 2: Deposit an amount of Rs. 50,000 at end of each year for the next 10 years in saving account of M Bank which provides 10% interest rate compounded quarterly.

Solution:

Cash Deposit CCF=50,000

No of years (m*n) =10

Interest rate (i/m)  =10%

Compound Quarterly =4

 

 

 

Option 3: Deposit an amount of Rs. 100,000 at end of each year for the next 10 years in a saving account at N&P bank which provides 10% interest rate compounded semi-annually.

Solution:

Cash Deposit CCF=100,000

No of years (m*n) =10

Interest rate (i/m)  =10%

Compound semi-annually =2

 

 

 

Reason:

Option 2 is best because in option 2 profit value is high.

 

Option A

Cash Deposited CCF = 120,000

No of year (mxn) =10

interest Rate (i/m) = 12%

Compound annually = Nil

Formula

FV = CCF {[1+(i/m)] mxn -1} / (i/m)

FV = CFF {[1+12%]10 -1}/ (0.12)

FV = CFF {3.10584 -1}/ (0.12)

FV = CFF (17.5487)

FV = 120,000 (17.5487)

FV = 21,05844 Answer

 

Option B

Cash Deposited CCF = 50,000

No of year (mxn) =10

interest Rate (i/m) = 10%

Compound quarterly= 4

 

Formula

 

FV = CCF {[1+(i/m)] mxn Quaretly-1} / (i/m)

FV = CCF {[+ (10%/4)]10*4 -1}/ (10%/4)

FV = CCF {[1.025]40 -1}/ (0.025)

FV = CCF {[2.685063 -1}/ (0.025)

FV = CFF {67.40252}

FV = 50,000 * 67.40252

FV = 3370126   Answer

 

 

 

 

 

Option C

Cash Deposited CCF = 100,000

No of year (mxn) =10

interest Rate (i/m) = 10%

Compound semi-annually= 2

 

Formula

 

FV = CCF {[1+(i/m)] mxn Quaretly-1} / (i/m)

FV = CCF {[1+(10%/2)]10*2 -1}/ (10%/2)

FV = CCF {[1.05]20 -1}/(0.05)

FV = CFF {1.65329}/ (0.05)

FV = 100,000 * 33.0658

FV = 33,06580   Answer

 

 

 

Reason:

Option 2 is best because in option 2 profit value is high.
