1. If interest period is other than annual, how do we calculate economic equivalence? 2. If payments occur more frequently than annual, how do we calculate economic equivalence?

**Nominal Versus Effective Interest Rates
**

Nominal Interest Rate: Interest rate quoted based on an annual period Effective Interest Rate: Actual interest earned or paid in a year or some other time period

18% Compounded Monthly

**18% compounded monthly

Question: Suppose that you invest $1 for 1 year at an 18% compounded monthly. How much interest would you earn? Solution:

F = $ 1(1 + i )12 = $ 1(1 + 0 .015 )12

**= $1.1956 ia = 0.1956 or 19.56%

**Effective Annual Interest Rates (9% compounded quarterly)
**

First quarter Second quarter Third quarter Fourth quarter

Base amount + Interest (2.25%) $10,000 + $225

= New base amount + Interest (2.25%)

= $10,225 +$230.06

= New base amount + Interest (2.25%)

= $10,455.06 +$235.24

= New base amount + Interest (2.25 %) = Value after one year

= $10,690.30 + $240.53 = $10,930.83

**Equivalence Calculations with More Frequent Compounding
**

r = nominal, annual interest rate and compounding period Examples: 12% per year compounded monthly (1) 10% per year compounded quarterly (2) i = interest rate per compounding period = annual interest rate

( # of compounding periods per year) Examples: 12% / 12 months = 1% compounded monthly 10% / 4 quarters = 2.5% compounded quarterly Which would I rather have: 12% compounded annually or 12% compounded monthly? (1) (2)

Let’s Show It!

EFFECTIVE INTEREST RATE ia = effective interest rate per year compounded annually = ( 1 + interest rate per period) # of periods - 1 Example: r = 12% per year compounded monthly i = 12% / 12 months = 1 % compounded monthly ia = (1 + .01)12 – 1 = 12.68% compounded annually

Another example…

r = 12% per year compounded semi-annually isemi-annual = 12% / 2 = 6% per 6 months

ia = (1 + .06)2 – 1 = .1236 = 12.36% per year compounded annually As the compounding period gets smaller, does the effective interest rate increase or decrease?

S.V. Atre

**Let’s Illustrate the Answer…
**

r = 12% per year compounded daily idaily = 12%/365 = .000329

**ia = (1 + .000329)365 – 1 = .12747 = 12.747% per year compounded annually
**

What happens if we let the compounding period get infinitely small?

Effective Annual Interest Rate

ia = (1 + r / M ) − 1

M

r = nominal interest rate per year ia = effective annual interest rate M = number of interest periods per year

Problem 1

The local bank branch pays interest on savings accounts at the rate of 6% per year, compounded monthly. What is the effective annual rate of interest paid on accounts?

GIVEN: DIAGRAM: NONE NEEDED! FIND ia: r = 6%/yr M = 12mo/yr r⎞ ⎛ ia = ⎜ 1 + ⎟ − 1 ⎝ M⎠ ⎛ 0.06 ⎞ = ⎜1 + ⎟ 12 ⎠ ⎝

**Equivalence Analysis using Effective Interest Rate
**

Identify the compounding period (e.g., annually, quarterly, monthly Identify the payment period (e.g., annual, quarter, month, week, etc), etc) Find the effective interest rate that covers the payment period.

**When Payment Periods and Compounding Periods Coincide
**

Step 1: Identify the number of compounding periods (M) per year Step 2: Compute the effective interest rate per payment period (i) i = r/M Step 3: Determine the total number of payment periods (N) N = M (number of years) Step 4: Use the appropriate interest formula using i and N above

**Sample Calculation: One Pack per Day
**

Step 1: Identify compounding period

“5.5% interest compounded weekly”

**Step 2: Compute the effective interest rate per payment period.
**

Payment period = weekly i = 5.5%/52 = 0.10577% per week

**Step 3: Find the total number of deposit periods
**

N = (52 weeks/yr.)(50 years) = 2600 weeks

**Step 4: Use the appropriate formula F = A(F|A,I,N)
**

Weekly deposit amount, A = $1.75 x 7 = $12.25 per week F = $12.25 (F/A, 0.10577%, 2600) = $169,325
