2. Interest Rates: Interpretation
Interest rates can be interpreted as:
1. Required rate of return
2. Discount rate
3. Opportunity cost

Say you lend \$900 today and receive \$990 after one year

Required Rate of Return Discount Rate Opportunity Cost
Interest Rates: Investor Perspective
www.irfanullah.co 5
As investors, we can view an interest rate as:

Real risk-free interest rate +
Nominal
Risk-free
Rate
Practice Question 1
Jill Smith wishes to compute the required rate of return. Which of the
following premiums is she least likely to include?

risk premium, and liquidity premium. There is no such component as a
Practice Question 2
Which of the following is least likely true?
A. Discount rate is the rate needed to calculate present value
B. Opportunity cost represents the value an investor forgoes
C. Required rate of return is the maximum rate of return an investor
must receive to accept an investment

www.irfanullah.co 7

Required rate of return is the minimum rate of return an investor must
receive to accept an investment. Therefore, option C is least likely to be the
interpretation of interest rates.

Annuity: finite set of level sequential cash flows

occurring one period from today

approximate monthly payment?
