Hi this is finance assignment based on some calculation on total value of money (TVM) and bond... I am adding one question of TVM... There are total 7 question.
Dayna and Sam have come to the office of Pestano Personal Planning to discuss their long-range retirement goals. They want to retire in 20 years. They have $10,000 in savings now and they are still paying off their mortgage. They also want to save money to help their son and daughter with post-secondary education. For the next five years while they finish paying off the mortgage, they can save $5,000 per year for daughter Alpha’s education. She will start post-secondary at the start of year eight. In years 6 – 20 they can save $20,000 per annum because the mortgage will be paid off. They will allocate $5,000 of it in years 6 – 10 inclusive to savings for son Beta’s post-secondary education. He is expected to start at the beginning of year 11. The rest of the savings go towards their retirement. They both will have good pensions, but they expect they will want to draw an additional $15,000 per year from savings for 30 years in retirement. They also want to take a world tour in their first year of retirement that will require an additional $100,000 on top of their pensions and the $15,000 annual draw from savings.
To solve this problem, planner Pestano assumes all annual savings and all retirement expenses occur at year-end. The world trip has to be paid for at the start of the year. He will invest their money for an expected return of 4% until they retire and an expected return of 3% after they retire. Pestano has converted all the numbers to real after-tax values, and hence you can ignore taxes and inflation. Pestano rounds all his answers to the nearest dollar.
