What is the annual nominal rate compounded daily for a bond that has an annual yield of 5.4%?

Mar 26th, 2015

To calculate APY for a given nominal interest rate, you need to know the nominal rate r as a decimal, and the number of compounding periods per year, N. The general formula is APY = (1 + r/N)^N.

When the interest is compounded daily, N = 365, thus APYDAILY = (1 + r/365)365 - 1.

An investment which states 5.400% nominal rate and compounding 365 times per year results in an effective rate of 5.548%.
