Hi Everyone & thanks in advance for any help on this... Suppose you know:  Instrument price (market price)  Future coupon dates & amounts (not predictable, but you have the data)  Principal repayment amount & date... (& you have Microsoft excel/VBA) How do you calculate the annualised compounding rate of return? I know if the coupons could be treated as an annuity it's easy, but that's the sticky part here  the coupon amounts/dates are all over the place, albeit known. Any help greatly appreciated!

that's about all I can tell you. If you want a better answer, than ask a better/clearer question; and if possible, supply an example. Merci beaucoup.

IRR does it perfectly. From what i can see on the internet, some IRR functions in previous Excel versions only allow input of (values,guess). I'm using Excel for Mac 2011 & it allows (values,dates,guess) but guess is optional. Thanks for your help!

Hello, yes, just confirming that the IRR function should be able to do what you asking. You are correct, different timing of the cash flows and amounts makes it tricky to calculate the IRR or Yield to Maturity. Not even most yield to maturity calculators have the ability to add different timing of coupon payments and different cash flow amounts. That's something where excel definitely has a leg up.
