Summary

What is the periodic rate formula?

The nominal annual rate divided by frequency; NAR/n

What is the EAR formula?

EAR = (1 + periodic rate)periods – 1

or

EAR = er*t – 1

What is the compounding formula?

1 + periodic rateperiods

Which of the following is better for a borrower?

Borrowing at 4.30% and paying interest semi-annually or borrowing at 4.20% and paying monthly? Borrowing at 4.30% on a semi-annual basis gives an EAR of 4.346%. Borrowing at 4.20% and paying interest monthly gives an effective rate of 4.282%. A borrower should borrow at 4.20% and pay monthly a depositor should go for the other option as that gives them a higher effective return.
