(TVM) or the
present discounted value
is one of the basic concepts of finance. We know thatif we deposit money in a bank account we will receive interest.

Money we receive today is more valuable to us than money received in the future bythe amount of interest we can earn with the money. This is referred to as the time value or cash value of money. It is thechange in purchasing power of money over time.It also takes into account default risk and inflation. 100 monetary units today is a sure thing and can be enjoyed now. In 5years that money could be worthless or not returned to the investor.To adjust for this time value, we use two simple formulae. The present value formula is used to discount future moneystreams: that is, to convert future amounts to their equivalent present day amounts. The future value formula is used toconvert today's money into the equivalent amount at some time in the future (i.e., to compound money...either a lump sumor streams of payments).
