Finance Formulas / July 19, 2018 / Rory Wise
The annuity payment formula shown is for ordinary annuities. This formula assumes that the rate does not change, the payments stay the same, and that the first payment is one period away. An annuity that grows at a proportionate rate would use the growing annuity payment formula.
When you calculate the price of a bond, you are determining the maximum price you would want to pay for the bond, based on how its coupon rate compares to the average rate most investors are currently receiving in the bond market. Due to default risk, investors may require a higher rate of return than the prevailing risk-free rate. In general, the greater the default risk on a given bond issue, the higher the required rate of return.
