The fund contains exactly sufficient money now to cover these liabilities on the basis of an effective interest rate of 7% per annum. This is also the interest rate on which current market prices are calculated and the interest rate earned on cash. The fund wishes to hold 20% of its money in cash and to immediately invest €2 million in a perpetuity bearing interest of 8% per annum payable half-yearly. It then wants to immediately invest the balance in a zero-coupon bond redeemable at par in n years’ time. Find: a) The present value and discounted mean term of the liabilities. b) The real number n that would make the discounted mean terms of the assets and liabilities equal. Hint: The discounted mean term of the cash is 0. Having completed (a), I found the Present Value to be €10,594,000 and the Discounted Mean Term to be 8.316 years. How do I go about part (b)? Thanks in advance for any help.
