A zero coupon bond has a face value of $1,000 and
matures in 4 years. Investors require a (n) 6.1% annual return on these bonds.
What should be the selling price of the bond? (Round to the nearest cent)
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
A zero coupon bond is a bond that makes no periodic interests but it is sold at a discount from face value.
Selling price =M/(1+r)^n
where ;M=maturity value.
r=investor required anual yield /2
n=number of years till maturity
to the nearest cents=1127.70
