Any finance majors/pros that can help me out?
Okay, I'm having some trouble with this question, any help from any of the finance guys on here would be greatly appreciated.
Quote:
DG=DA(MVL/MVA)*DL Where DG is the duration gap, DA is the average duration of the assets, MVL is the market value of liabilities, MVA is the market value of the assets, and DL is the average duration of the liabilities. For the CDs and the discount loan, the durations equal the maturities. For the 3year loan I figured the duration to be 2.66 years? And for the 5year, I figured it to be 4.17 years? I'm assuming I need to set DG to zero but I don't know how to find the weighted averages for for the assets (loans) or the liabilities (CDs). Is MVA just going to be $10,000? So I'm going to be solving for MVL but once I get a number for it how am I going to divide it up between the two different CDs? Keep in mind I need to show the calculations for this so anybody trying to help should write out the steps involved. I'm hoping somebody who knows this stuff can fly through it and help me out, it would definitely be appreciated. Thanks guys

no...MVA should equate to roughly 7,500
think about annuities. if you have a 4 yr annuity at a .75 rate your MVA should be 7500 right? same rules apply...just carry the one over the adjusted rate. your discount remains the same.
