Example quote sheet for NZ bonds
Bonds in New Zealand are quoted by yield. This means an investor must determine the actual price of the instrument
using the RBNZ (Reserve Bank) formula.
In this Excel sheet it is shown how to use Excel built-in functions to determine a bond price. Excel returns the "clean
price" without accrued coupon, so we must add it back to find the "dirty price".
