Time Value of Money
Learning Objectives
 To elaborate the concept of time value of money and time line.
 To explain the differences between simple interest and
compound interest.
 To elucidate the future value of single amount.
 To explain the effects of frequent compounding towards future
value amount.
 To clarify the differences between effective and nominal interest
rate.
 To explain the present value for an amount in the future
 To illustrate the calculation of future value and present value for
both ordinary annuity and annuity due.
 To calculate the value of uneven cash flows.
 To discuss on perpetuity.
 To elaborate on the application of time value of money concept
in loan amortization.

Generally, receiving \$1 today is worth more
than \$1 in the future. This is due to
opportunity costs.
The opportunity cost of receiving \$1 in the
future is the interest we could have earned
Today Future
If we can measure this opportunity
cost, we can:
 Translate \$1 today into its equivalent in the future
(compounding).

 Translate \$1 in the future into its equivalent today
(discounting).

Significance of the time value of money
 Time value of money is important in understanding
financial management.
 It should be considered for making financial
decisions.
 It can be used to compare investment alternatives and
to solve problems involving loans, mortgages, leases,
savings, and annuities.

Simple Interest
 Interest is earned only on principal.
 Example: Compute simple interest on \$100
invested at 6% per year for three years.
 1
st
year interest is \$6.00
 2
nd
year interest is \$6.00
 3
rd
year interest is \$6.00
 Total interest earned: \$18.00
Compound Interest
 Compounding is when interest paid on an investment
during the first period is added to the principal; then,
during the second period, interest is earned on the
new sum (that includes the principal and interest
earned so far).
 Is the amount a sum will grow to in a certain number
of years when compounded at a specific rate.
 Compounding : process of determining the Future
Value (FV) of cash flow.
 Compounded amount = Future Value (beginning
amount plus interest earned. )

Compound Interest
 Example: Compute compound interest on
\$100 invested at 6% for three years with
annual compounding.
 1
st
year interest is \$6.00 Principal now is \$106.00
 2
nd
year interest is \$6.36 Principal now is \$112.36
 3
rd
year interest is \$6.74 Principal now is \$119.11
 Total interest earned: \$19.10
• Suppose you invest \$100 for one year at 5% per year.
What is the future value in one year?
– Interest = 100(.05) = 5
– Value in one year = principal + interest = 100 + 5 = 105
– Future Value (FV) = 100(1 + .05) = 105

• Suppose you leave the money in for another year. How
much will you have two years from now?
– FV = 100(1.05)(1.05) = 100(1.05)
2
= 110.25
• FV = PV(1 + r)
t

– FV = future value
– PV = present value
– r = period interest rate, expressed as a decimal
– t = number of periods
• Future value interest factor = (1 + r)
t

Future Value
 Future Value is the amount a sum will grow to in a certain number of
years when compounded at a specific rate.
 Two ways to calculate Future Value (FV): by using Manual Formula or
Using Table.

semiannually, quarterly, monthly or daily…
If semiannually compounding :
FV = PV (1 + i/2)

If quarterly compounding :
FV = PV (1 + i/4)

If daily compounding :
FV = PV (1 + i/365)

Hint for single sum problems:
 In every single sum present value and future
value problem, there are four variables:
FV, PV, i and n.
 When doing problems, you will be given three
variables and you will solve for the fourth
variable.
 Keeping this in mind makes solving time value
problems much easier!
Handy Rule of Thumb
• Rule of 72 can estimate how long it takes to double a
sum of money
– Time to double money = 72 / (interest rate per year)

• If interest rate = 9% per year, it will take 8 years to
double the money
– Time to double money = 72 / 9% = 8 years

• If the time taken to double the money is 8 years, the
interest rate is 9% per year
– Interest rate per year = 72 / 8 years = 9%

Annual Percentage Rate (APR)
• This is the annual rate that is quoted by law.

• By definition, APR = period rate times the number of periods
per year.

– Period rate = APR / number of periods per year

• . What is the APR if the monthly rate is 0.5%?
– 0.5(12) = 6%

• What is the APR if the semiannual rate is 0.5%?
– 0.5(2) = 1%

• What is the monthly rate if the APR is 12% with monthly
compounding?
– 12 / 12 = 1%

Effective Annual Rate (EAR)
Which is the better loan:
 8% compounded annually, or
 7.85% compounded quarterly?
 We can’t compare these nominal (quoted)
interest rates, because they don’t include the
same number of compounding periods per
year!
We need to calculate the EAR (or Annual
Percentage Yield (APY)
Effective Annual Rate(EAR)
 Find the APY for the quarterly loan:

 The quarterly loan is more expensive than
the 8% loan with annual compounding!

Making Decisions using EAR
• You are looking at two savings accounts. One pays
5.25%, with daily compounding. The other pays 5.3%
with semiannual compounding. Which account should
you use?

– First account:
• EAR = (1 + .0525/365)
365
– 1 = 5.39%

– Second account:
• EAR = (1 + .053/2)
2
– 1 = 5.37%

• Which account should you choose and why?
Amortized Loans
 Loans paid off in equal installments over time are
called amortized loans.
 Example: Home mortgages, auto loans.
 Reducing the balance of a loan via annuity payments
is called amortizing.
 The periodic payment is fixed. However, different
amounts of each payment are applied towards the
principal and interest.
 With each payment, you owe less towards principal.
As a result, amount that goes toward interest
declines with every payment (as seen in Figure 5-4).

 If you want to finance a new machinery with a purchase price of
\$6,000 at an interest rate of 15% over 4 years, what will your
annual payments be?
 Finding Payment: Payment amount can be found by solving for
PMT using PV of annuity formula.
 PV of Annuity = PMT {1 – (1 + r)
–4
}/r
6,000 = PMT {1 – (1 + .15)
–4
}/.15
6,000 = PMT (2.855)
PMT = 6,000/2.855 = \$2,101.58
