dear bronil in order to solve the q:5 u need to understand the above mentioned 3 funds and its meaning. once u understand this clearly u can easily solve this question so lets start with the balance fund.balance fund is for the people who dont want to divesify their portfolio or dont want to invest in stocks directly, in short balance fund r ready made fund which consist of 65 % equity and the remaning 35 % consist of different debt products.2nd one is growth fund which one is invest for appreciation.3rd one is protectors fund when people transfer all or portion of their portfolio to debt instrument bcoz they are very nearer to his retirement so they dont want to take any risk in their retirement days as the safety of their pricinciple is their first priority. now lets come to our solution of the problem i solve this question with excel as through financial calc itz very confusing.so here it is:balance fund rate=8%,growth fund=12%,protector fund=6% nper=31
age, pmt, contribution, ror, fund value
27, 60000, 60000*70%=42000, 8%,42000*(1+8%)=45360.(here contribution is 70% of 6000 increasing by 10% for subsequent yrs)
28, 60000,60000*80%=48000, 8%,48000+45360*(1+8%)=100828.
29, 60000,60000*90%=54000,12%=54000+100828*(1+12%)=173408.(after 2 yrs he applied for growth fund)
30,60000,60000*100%=60000,12%=60000+173408*(1+12%)=261417
drag the above steps upto 52yrs of age by taking the same 12% of ror.At 52 yrs of his age is fund value is 9379403.after tht in the same way from age 53 to 57 by taking the 6 % ror u can find the answer the answer is12910276.
manish said
dear bronil after 29 yrs the contribution remains 60000 u dont need to increase it by 10% bcoz the maximum limit of contribution should not be more than pmt(i.e)60000.i hope i solved ur query.
Prashant Shah said
Dear Manish,
Thank you so much for all the help.

Preeti Motiani said
Dear Manish,
Can’t we solve question 5 using growing annuity formula?
Manish said
Dear prashant sir my pleasure.
gayatri said
Request you to please tell me the solution of Q.4,Q.12 &Q.18
manish said
dear gayatri for question no 4 the solution are as follows:
as the accumulation period is 5 yrs and distribution period is 20 yrs first we need to find out how much she needs to have the corpus in order to fund her retirement days so her planner estimated tht she needs rs 45000 per month each year for 20 yrs along with that u need to calculate the real return =((1+r)/1+i)1))=0.0192.put all these figures on excel pmt=45000,nper=240,rate=0.0192,pv=?.pv is8959710.after tht u r require to find out how much u save per year in order to achieve the corpus (i.e)8959710 in order to do this calculate the pmt.fv=8959710,nper=5,rate=6%,pmt=?.so the answer is 1589420.
question no 12 and 18 can be solved in the same way as q no 4.

manish

hello sir i hv nt understood d question no.8 …can u pls help me in solving it?
Prashant Shah said
Dear Meenakshi,
I am requesting Manish to help you. He will reply you soon.

Prashant V Shah.
Manish said
Dear meenaxi u just need to find out the loan amt other details like age,retirement age is not relevant in this sum as while finding out the loan amt these details are not required these details are there just to distract u so the solution are as follow:
rate=8%/12
nper=30*12
pmt=953.89
pv=?
therefore the pv comes to 129999 roundabt 130000.
meenakshi said
thank u Mr. Manish and Mr. Prashant for ur help
meenakshi said
request you to please tell me the solution of ques 13 and 17
Manish said
Dear meenaxi the solution for question no:13 are as follow:
13.]the loan amt is Rs12 lakh,term of the loan is 15 yrs,rate of interest is 7%,we need to find out the interest amt of the whole term of 15 yrs.in order to find out the interest of whole term first u need to calculate the emi over the term of the loan.so emi will be calculated as follows:
pv=1200000
nper=15*12
rate=7%/12
pmt(emi)=?.emi comes to 10785.
emi over the term of the loan=10785*12*15=1941469.
the difference of loan amt and emi over the term of the loan is ur total interest=19414691200000=741469.
17.]in this question we need to calculate the savings per annum in order to achieve the corpus.plz note while doing this type of sums it is extremly imp to factor the inflation. the current exprenditure is Rs 2 lakh p.a so we have to find the value of this Rs 2 lakh after 35 yrs by taking the inflation rate the same are calculated as under:
pv=200000
nper=35
inflation rate=6%
fv=?.fv comes to 1537217.
after that u need to calculate the corpus so he can get Rs 1537217 p.a for 15 yrs at the beginning of each year.
pmt=1537217
nper=15
real rate=3.77%
type=1
compute pv (i.e) corpus=?.so the corpus comes to 18020465.now the main trick of this sum is that this corpus represents 90% which goes into funding his retirement days.he wants to utilize the remaining 10% for leaving the estate.so we need to convert this corpus into 100% the same comes to =100*18020465/90=20022739.
in order to achieve the above corpus he wants to know how much he should save p.a?
fv=20022739
nper=35
rate=10%
compute pmt (i.e) savings=73878.
meenakshi said
Thank u so much sir …. I hv cleared my retirement module today
Manish sir and Prashant sir u both r doing a great job ..
R Varadarajan said
Dear Manish,
In the above sum, after working out the EMI( PMT) one can go to AMRT function and choose Pmt1 and Pmt 180 & Sigma Intrerest to get the total interest.This is an alternative method and could be used to reckeck the answer.
Manish said
Dear meenaxi congratulations keep connected with this site and help others to clear the examz like u cleared today.i also wanted u to know that i am a student like u pursuing cfp so ur big thanx goes to prashant sir the creator of this blog.
Meenakshi said
Thank u manish sir …and a big thanks to prashant sir …

Manish said
Dear meenakshi u can request vinayak to help u and guide you with this module as he has already cleared all the modules of cfp.
Roopa Soni said
Prashant Sir,
Please give the solution for Q no 2.
Manish said
Dear roopa the imp point to catch in this sum is to take nper17 yrs not 20 yrs i agree that the term of the new loan is 20 yrs but he wants to debt free at age 60.therefore we take 17yrs(6043).by considering these factors we need to calculate the emi
refinance amt114042
add 3% closing cost3421
total loan amt117463
pv117463
nper17*12
rate7%/12
pmt? 986.29
R Varadarajan said
Dear Manish,
With regard to the solutions for Problem no. 2, we get the answer 986.29 with ” End” mode and 880.57 with ” Begin” mode. In the case of loan repayments EMIs are normally supposed to start at the beginning. Can you please clarify why we are taking the ” End” mode in this problem. Thanks

Prashant Shah said
Dear Varadarajan,
Once you take the loan, the repayment always starts after a stated period (normally a month). That is the reason why we always assume end mode for the questions.
However in real life for consumer durables loan, they have a tendancy to take 1 to 3 emi in advance. This arrangement reduces the loan taken but remember that these all are gimmicks payed to lure the customers.
Loan gets amortized in the end mode.
Prashant.
Manish said
Dear R varadarajan emi”s are always paid at the end of the month so no need to assume begin mode u can refer the tvm concept from this site for more clarity.
R Varadarajan said
Dear Prashant/Manish/Vinayak,
I need your help in solving the following problem
“Mr S aged 30 years is saving for the last 11 years in a Savings account giving a 3.5% p a. He is in the habit of increasing the amount by a fixed sum of Rs.2000 every year. If he deposits Rs.25000 in 12th Year what will be the corpus he will accumulate at the age of 60, if the rate of inflation is 11.68%
Answers 😦 a ) 2980330 ( b ) 3251251 ( c ) 2523252 ( d )3322531
Correct answer ( a ) 2980330”
I will be much obliged if some one could provide a working for the same, as I am stuck with 23 problems of this nature.

fpsb has put notification regarding change in paper pattern . in the revised pattern are new topics are added or can we refer our old study material and refrence books prashant sir or any other members od the blog please suggest what to do thanks
Prashant Shah said
Dear Altaf,
I dont know which books do you use. If you have new IMS books, they are not so useful. Rest of the book are ok if you retain and update the smaller things for taxation and retirement.

Dear Prashant Shah,
In the last two weeks I cleared 3 modules of CFP Investment, Tax and Insurance in first attempt itself however I failed retirement and EB twice. First time I was way too distracted by a fellow exam taker at the NSE centre ( good prudence if I had just concentrated harder) and second was today. The difference between old format and new format is sky high. New format is not so scoring. First in old format 1 and 2 marks were pretty easy, so if u get even 60 marks in this section right , one had to get just 14 more marks to get it right. But in new format the questions are given as per the Syllabus listed in the notice displayed in the FPSB website. Besides the problem are much harder and time consuming. In earlier attempts any paper I could complete in one and half hour and have half hour to check. But now same is not so easy.I don’t mean to frighten anyone, but CFP exams are pretty much one of the expensive exams as against the other exams conducted at NSE centre, so try to get all concepts clear before anwering the paper. The sad part for me is my registration expires just today ( I know I pushed taking the exams way too far), and I have to reregister just to take the exam again.
Prashant Shah said
Dear Suma,
Congratulations for clearing 3 modules in fastrek. And consolation for rpeb.
I too agree with you that now onwards we must be crystal clear in concepts.
Regards,
Prashant.
Altaf said
Dear Suma
thanks for sharing your experience i am also planning to appear for retirement planning . have you cleared the other modules in new format. wish you all the best for your preperation and prashant sir thank you for your help and support sir do us give some guidance on books to refer
R Varadarajan said
Dear Suma,
I have to share my experience in the RPEB Exams. In spite of my best preparation I could get only 86 marks( reqd 90) . although I could clear the IP and TP with high scores. As you rightly said, I could not attempt many problems for want of time since they were very confusing/time consuming. Most of the sums were far beyond the standards of the questions we had encountered either in this blog or in other work books. In fact many of the problems were even much tougher than the ones appeared in the sample paper circulated by FPSB. My confidence is completely shattered and it could take a couple of days for me to get back to normal. In case you could remember , work out/solve some of those problems, please post them here for the benefit of the others. With best wishes – R Varadarajan
S said
Dear Altaf,
No. I was trying to clear all modules before new format sets in as was aware things are going to get only tougher. However it is just format which has changed. Only RP is something which I have taken both in old and new format. The 4 marks questions have got tougher> But if one sticks to the syllabus listed in PDF notices in FPSB links a clarity can be established.
Good luck.
R Varadarajan said
Dear Prashantji,
I am very disappointed to state that I could not clear the RPEB exams, today which was in the new format. Although I was well prepared, the questions were very tough and most of the problems appeared to unsolvable within the time limit specified. In fact I could not even attempt 810 problems which were far beyond the comprehension compared to problems we have encountered in your blog or in the question bank of IIFP. Perhaps some of them were far more difficult than the questions in the sample papers circulated by FPSB. Since I have fixed the date for the Insurance Exam next, I am planning to allow it cool a bit, as my confidence got shaken up after todays’s experience.
I look forward to your advise.
Thanks
R Varadarajan
Altaf said
dont be disappointed Varadarajan failure is stepping stoe towards sucess better luck next time and all the best for insurance.if possible could you please share the questions which apperead in the exam as i am planning to take the exam
R Varadarajan said
Thanks Altaf. I only hope I do well in the Insurance module.
Most of the problems were very complicated with multiple calculations with several twists in them. As indicated earlier, many of them were on the lines of the problemss in the sample questions with much more twists. There were only one or two questions which were with inflation adjusted earnings after retirement with questions for either interest or savings required. All others were with far more complicated options for investment and returns which would take perhaps more than 15 mts for each of them. Imagine far more complicated or tougher problems than the ones on the sample paper circulated by FPSB.
R Varadarajan said
Dear Altaf, I am furnishing some of the problems for your use which you could practice.
1.A& B both aged 30 plan to save Rs.10000 pm for 30 years till their retirement. A starts immediately,invests for 10 years, stops investment and allows the investment to grow. But B starts 10 year and continues till retirement. Who gets more and how much.
2. A&B both , both at 30 have current exp of 35000 pm and are saving till their retirement at 60, with investment return of 8.5%. The post retirement inflation and and returns are 6.5% and 7.5%. If A decides to prepone his retirement by 5 years, how soon his corpus would exhaust compared to B.
3.Mr S & Mrs S have two annuity schemes available to them at retirement. S has expected life is 15 years while Mrs S is expected to live for 38 years. Annuity AA gives annuity of 8640 pm for S and 50% of the amount to Mrs S on his expiry. The annuity BB gives the annuity of 7700 pm for S till his survival and 90% of the amount for Mrs S. Which one is better and with how many basic point difference.
4. There was a problem to calculate the net worth in the case of housing loan repayment and the networth calculation similar to the one on the sample paper.
5.Find the yield of a 30 year annuity that gives 4% cashflow in the first year and an increase of 5% over the previous year for subsequent years
6. What the Maturity date and value of a PPF accounted started on 31st March 2010 with Rs.1.00 Lakh and annual investment of Rs.1.00 Lakh on the same date every year till maturity
You could try these and wish you all the best.
Suma said
Dear Varadarajan,
You summed up my thoughts abt RPEB. Now I dint get any slots before 1st Match in Hyd, anyways the break is long and gives me more time to prepare and reflect. Adding to what u tried let me write some questions from my memory which appeared in exam
1. Can there be transfer between Tier I and Tier II account.
2. There where few questions about what aspects are covered under professionalism, code of ethics.
3. A employee is not covered under gratuity act. He has worked for 19 years, has basic last drawn salary of 105000 and 40% of basic is DA and city compensatory allowance of 30000. The basic salary was revise 3 months ago and previous to that the basic salary was 94500. He received 1250000 as gratuity. Calculate his taxable gratuity.
4. There was one loam amt with PPF
5. There were two problems related PPF date and withdrwal amt
7. Max amount in EDLI
8.There was a question in asset allocation. A person has 15 years to retirement. First 5 years he wants to allocate 2 lacs, then next 5 years 3 lacs and then 5 lacs for last 50 years in equity and debt in following ratios: first 5 years 70:30 for equity and debt, next 30:70 and again back to 70:30. The rate of interest for first 5 and last 5 years for equity is 19 and 7 and middle order block of five years is 11 and 9 for equity and debt. Calculate the retirement corpus.
9. Salary under EPS 1995 is ___________
10. How does the lender settle the property after reverse mortgage loan period
Let me c i can pull from my brain later

Thanks Suma for sharing the questions, like I had shared the ones I remebered.I think this could help the others in the days to come. Surprisingly I didn’t get any questions on Reverse Mortgage – not even 1 mark theory question.
Suma said
there is typo error it should be read as last 5 not 50 years
Anuj said

yes Varadrajan, infact two
1. An old couple has monthly expenses of 35000 and earning from fixed assets is 30000. There house was valued by a bank @35 lacs and 60% of total value was offered a RML for 15 years. If inflation is 6% and the life expectancy of last survivor of the couple is till end of tenure. Calculate the savings of old couple if they decide to invest the balance in 8% earning instrument post meeting their expenses.
R Varadarajan said
Dear Suma,
With regard the question on cash flow of 4% & 5% posted by me, I am not sure whether the question itself is complete or whether I had missed out something. W r t your question on RM problem, what is the interest rate for the loan?
Suma said
Dear Vardarajan,
If I remember right it was 9%, most problems where in range of 8.59%
Prashant Shah said
Dear Suma,
Solving this with some assumptions,
– Loan is paid in lumpsum at beginning
– Old couple is not required to repay the loan (as per the structure of RML)
– Return on fixed assets is equal to inflation.
PV = 35,00,000*60%
N = 15*12
I/Y = MNRR
PMT = 5000 (BGN)
FV = ? (17.40 Lakh approx)
Pls let me know the options if you remember for modification if necessary.
Regards,
Prashant.

Dear sir
which methods you use to solve i am not understand
Suma said
Can someone solve this
“5.Find the yield of a 30 year annuity that gives 4% cashflow in the first year and an increase of 5% over the previous year for subsequent years”
Thanks
Vinayak said
Dear Suma,
You can try using the IRR function in Excel/open Office. Take the initial amount as – 100. First year amount Rs.4 and next year is 4 * (1.05) and so on. Take for 30 years. Insert the IRR function and you will get 6% as the answer, which is the yield. However I’m not very sure this is the correct approach. Let’s see what Prashant has to say about this.
Vinayak
R Varadarajan said
Dear Vinayak
Thanks for the hint. Some how I am not getting the IRR or XIRR formula correctly even after using the formula help windows. I had taken Column 1 for years/Dates ( 1st April every year) and next column as the return as indicated But I am getting ERR report on using the IRR/XIRR format. Can you please advise. Thanks
Vinayak said
Dear Varadarajan,
You need only one column values for IRR. XIRR is when dates are also involved. In this case, since it is a regular yearly payment, you can use IRR. In one column, first enter 100 as the initial amount and in the subsequent rows, enter the yearly returns till the 30 th year. Then use the IRR function with the column values. You will get the answer. Hope its clear.
Vinayak
R Varadarajan said
Dear Vinayak,
Thanks for the hint. I got the answer 5.93%. I trust this is correct. I recall that this question was their in my paper.I remembered the answers 6.07% , &.2, etc – but can’t recall whether this was there. Never the less, this appears to be the correct approach to the problem. Let us wait for Prashanji’s suggestion if any.
Suma said
Hi Vinayak,
Yes. IRR works out to be 6%. Has anyone tried using excel in the actual exam. I use BA II Plus financial calculator for everything else but when it comes to irr and npv prefer excel as long series of cash flow problems are easier in excel.
Thanks once again.
Suma
Vinayak said
Dear Suma,
Whether to use a calculator or excel in the exam depends upon the question/problem. Some problems involving corpus calcs or loan amortisation can be solved quickly using calculator. For some problems like XIRR or ULIP calculations or problems having series of cash flows, they can be solved only through excel. It really depends upon the problem and also your familiarity, speed and accuracy in using the calc and excel. Its better to be familiar with both and depending upon the problem and time, you can decide to use either calculator or excel. I personally have used only calculator ( Casio FC 200V) for all the modules except final module, in which I had to use excel for XIRR and for ULIP probs.
Vinayak

Dear Vinayak,
Its absolutely perfect.

Dear All,
PPF question.
If 1 lac is deposited every year on the last working day of the FY i.e 31st March and the first deposit is made on 31st March 2013 when is the amount withdrawable.
R Varadarajan said
PPF Account Opened on 31st March 2013 would mature after 31st March 2028 According to me the PPF accounts thumb rule is 16 deposits and 15 full Financial Years.
For example if opened on 31 March 2013 with Rs.100000 and with same deposit of Rs.100000 every year, the account will mature on 1st April 2018 with Maturity Value of Rs.3,032,428.30.
I would like to have the views of Mr Prashant Shah.
Suma said
You mean 1st April 2028, or 1st April 2018. I understand it is typo error
Prashant Shah said
Dear Suma,
In PPF fisrt withdrawal can be made after five financial years.
In your case
year1 201314
year2 201415
year3 201516
year4 201617
year5 201718
hence fist withdrawal can be made on or after 1st april 2018.

Thanks Prashanth sir
Suma said
The salary considered under EPS 1995 is average salary or pensionable salary… this was one of the one mark questions… as far as I understand average salary for 12 months is treated as pensionable salary but given as a question it is confusing. Please help. And pension is determined by Pensionable salary * Pension service/ 70. Correct me if I am wrong. I know this is covered but still have a doubt whether it should be avg salary or pensionable salary as both given in options. ( sometimes even simplest things seems distant)
Manish said
Dear suma,
the average salary here refers is named as pensionable salary in the scheme.it is arrived by considering the average salary drawn in period of 12 months preceding the date of exit membership of employee pension fund so from this explanation we can conclude that the salary considered under eps 1995 in order to compute pensionable salary is average salary and the stated formula is correct.
Suma said
Yes Manish,
But the problem is that answer had both option of pensionable salary and average salary for 12 months
Manish said
Dear suma,
According to me the answer should be average salary like i mentioned in the above comment that average salary is named as pensionable salary in the formula.For example we can put the formula like this average salary*pensionable service/70.They have just replaced the average salary with pensionable salary and therefore the actual salary considered under eps 1995 is average salary not pensionable salary.Hope its clear now.
R Varadarajan said
Dear Prashantji, Manish and Vinayak & Suma
Today I have cleared the Insurance module and am left with the RBEB which I couldn’t clear in my previous attempt and the final module, of course. Thank you all. I look forward to the continued support and also feed back from others who have appeared for the RPEB exam recently after the modifed syllubus with type of questions they encountered. I sure Suma would have cleared RPEB by now and I look forward to her message as well.

R Varadarajan said
Dear Prashantji, Manish, Vinayak & Suma,
I was pleasantly surprised to receive a call from FPSB saying that I had actually cleared the RPEB exam in view of the changes in the minimum requirements after the 1st February, though my results indicated otherwise. They have also updated the same in my profile on their website. I was planning to appear for the RPEB again which is not required now. Effectively, I have also cleared all the 4 papers and have to appear for the final module AFP. I now look forward to the some tips from all those who have cleared the final module and also the type of questions they have encountered.
Manish said
Dear R varadarajan,
wow thats a great news i have never heard anything like this before but now i can say that anything can happen congratulations and wish u all the very best for the final module.
Prashant Shah said
Amazing!
I didn’t understand what change in requirements led to change in result. Pls update all for same.
All the best for the final.
Regards,
Prashant V Shah.
R Varadarajan said
Dear Prashantji,
Even I am not aware of the changes. I wrote the exam on the 14th Feb and got a score of around 58% and the result shown was that I had failed with grade’C’. But I was pleasantly surprised to receive a call from FPSB indicating that they had revised the passing criteria due to the difficulty level of the questions and since my marks were above that level I had been declared ” passed” althouhg the earlier result was otherwise. They also indicated that they would be advising all those who had appeared after 1st February and did not get through narrowly ( probably they have reduced the minimum level to 55%) about the revision in their results. I am advising this just to inform all those who had appeared for modules 14 after 1st April to recheck their scores and also their result in the FPSB website (OCMS Login)Perhaps some could be in for a pleasant surprise
Altaf said
Congrats Suma and Varadarajan on your sucess .suma it would be great if you can share repb questions with us

congrats suma on clearing RPEB. I have cleared insurance module and appearing for Retirement module. Can you suggest any reference books, queston bank etc. I have study material from ACE.
Anuj said
Hi everyone,first of all congratulations to all those who have been successful. I have completed my insurance module.The same thing happened with me as Varadarajan said. I received a call from fpsb saying I have cleared RAIP. later I gave RPEB but could not clear it,probably missed it by 6 marks at the max 😦 . Well my experience has been the same,the questions are very tough and not even from the sample question from fpsb website. I have gone through the questions which some of us have shared after giving the exam which is really helpful,thanks a tonne for that. But am unable to find those kind of numericals anywhere. If anyone finds such questions do share. Apart from that I have a few doubts which are
1. How to calculate gratuity for piece rate employees and season employees.
2. There is this typical problem where it is given that a person has taken a loan at floating rate of interest and later the rate changes.Now if he wants to keep the tenure same,what will be the EMI.
3. Ms. Anita is 40 years old and wants to retire at 65. Life expectancy is 75 years. She will require 15,000 in the first month after retirement. Inflation is 4% p.a , interest rate is 7%. What is the corpus required to meet the expenses after retirement. Will the corpus be enough to fund her retirement if she saves upto Rs. 30,000 pa (at the end of the year)
according to me the corpus comes to 15,68,545.9 but the answer given is 15,62,031. Please guide, thanks in advance.
vinay said
hi, i am preparing for RPEB and tried to solve q.no 3.–
1) Real rate of return= ((1.07/1.04)1)*100= 2.8846%
2) Calculate PV rate 2.8846/12, nper 120, pmt 15000. Answer(corpus required) 1562028.61 (nearest to your answer 1562031.)
3) Amount saved – rate 7%, nper 25, pmt 30000. FV= 1897471.13 which is enough to fund her retirement.
Prashant sir and other experts please confirm this answer.
Anuj said
the answer comes to 15,62,028 when we use set end mode and as far as I know retirement corpus is calculated using set begin. one more thing that I don’t understand is when I put i=2.8846 and P/Y=12 the answer comes to 15,68,545.9 while if put i=2.8846/12 and keep P/Y=1 the answer comes different. Shouldn’t it be the same?
Prashant Shah said
Dear Vinay,
There are some modifications required in this solution
rate of return should be monthly nominal real rate (you have taken monthly effective real rate)
withdrawal should be in beginnig mode
Rest of the things are ok.
This is the way to solve exams in our exams.

Anuj said
I am a bit confused about the concepts of real rate,nominal rate and effective rate. from what i know real rate is the rate which is arrived after taking into account inflation,nominal rate is the one which doesn’t consider the compundings in given year and effective rate is one which does consider the no.of compoundings.
Is my understanding right ? Also what will be the right solution to the above question ? Vinay,Prashant Sir please advice.
vinay said
Prashant sir, thank you very much for the clarification.
Is there any short cuts in FC to calculate monthly nominal rate? In fpsb site they have used the formula – R ( 1+r/100)^(1/n) 1.
Vinayak said
Dear Vinay,
Use the CNVR function in Financial Calculator (Casio) to find effective rate and nominal rate. For example, if you want to find monthly nominal rate given annual effective rate, go to CNVR function, put n = 12, I % = effective rate, then solve for APR, you will get the annual nominal rate. Divide this by 12 and you will get the monthly nominal rate. Once you get the concepts clear regarding effective rate and nominal rate, it’s very easy.
Hope it’s clear.
Vinayak
Prashant Shah said
If you are using Texas, the same function is known as ICONV (above no.2)
vinay said
Vinayak sir, Prashant sir
thanks for the lucid explanation, big relief now. I use Casio FC.

Hello everyone,
I am giving my first shot at AFP tommorrow. I dare say I prepared, entire time flew by for end of FY work. I am only hoping to just go sit through and ateempt as many as I know. Request reply for confirming few interest rates as rates have changed on 1st April 2013 ( dont know if I have to go by old rates)
Instrument old rate New rate
PPF 8.8 8.7
NSC 5 8.6 8.5
NSC10 8.9 8.8
Please confirm
Prashant Shah said
Dear Suma,
The applicable rates for our exams are the rates which were declared in April,2012 and not April 2013. Hence for PPF you can go ahead with 8.8% as an applicable rate

ramakrishna said
Hi Prashant,
Thank youvery much for your kind reply.
But the problem with new patteren exam is very time consuming & difficulty level increased.
I attempted All the 68 marks of 2 & one marks questions atleast i will get minimum 50 marks out 68.
but I attempted only 11 questions of 3 marks.
4 marks question I am not touched because of time constraint.
The old material question almost very simple and direct now in exam each question is bit twisting.
For example.
A old couple having monthly expenses of 35000 PM and they are worried about infilation 6% growing year by year.
Couple is earning 30000 PM from fixed assets and bank offered a RML of 36 lakhs for 15 years of interest rate of 9%
P.A life expectency of an last surviour is end of loan tenure.calculate thesavings ofold coupleif they invest balance amountwith 8% earning savings instrument.
Solution Which I did in Exam
The balance expenses of old couple = Monthly exp – Fixed earning income.
3500030000 = 5000
RML part
PV= 3600000
I= 9/12
N= 15*12
EMI = 35499.55 mode is END
Monthly expense will grow 6% P.A
Difference amount available for saving monthly = 35499.33 5000
30499.33
which will grow as a infilation adjusted rate of raturn.
ROR monthly coverted is =(((1.08/1.060)1)*1000/12
0.155889156 after convert function using in FC200V
N= 180
I =0.155889156
pmt=39499.33
FV= 6331845.795 (as saving of old couple)
Another question
An old couple receiving Rs 26400 monthly pension , this amount is sufficient for their monthly expense and a bank is offering 60% of 36L as a RML with a 9% rate of interest P.A for 15 years. what is the additional income of the couple monthly/
Solution
PV = 60*3600000/100 = 2160000
N= 12*15 = 180
I = 9/12 = .75
Pmt = 21908.158 (mode is end)
please verify my solution and correct me if did any wrong in the above solutions.
Thanks & Regards,
Ramakrishna Rao
Manish said
Dear Ramakrishna,
Request you to see the comment number 21 in order to know the solution of first question.The solution of second question is:
fv=3600000*60%=2160000
nper=15*12=180
i=9/12=0.75
pmt=?(5708).
in reverse mortgage loan amount is always fv.
ramakrishna said
Dear Manish,
Thank you very much for you kind suggestionI took RML Value as a PV in both the problems you mean to say always in the RML problems value is FV.
Thanks & Regards,
Ramakrishna Rao
akash singhal said
shouldn’t the type be 1 in this solution as the amount is required at the beggining of the month always?

Many solutions might have been as per old course.
Current course suggest that investment normally happens at the beginning of the period.

my doubt is how to solve this probem if the rate of increase of rent and rate of increase of expenses are different? ie say expenses increase by 8%pa and rent by 7% pa.
i still did not understand the last step of calculation ie number of years the corpus would last and the logic of accommodating the growing expense, growing rent and the last rate of return.
please help.
Section II question 6–
A 45year old man spends Rs. 7.5 lakh p.a., almost the amount he earns, to maintain his family. He expects his expenses to rise by 7% p.a. He has not saved for retirement. He has a second house which he wants to rent at Rs. 20,000 p.m. immediately, the rent expected to increase by 7 % p.a. You advise him to create a corpus by his age of 60 by investing the rent received in an instrument yielding 9% p.a. at the end of every year. You estimate the number of years the accumulated corpus would last taking the received rents postretirement into account. The same is ____.
Solution:
Current expenses 750,000Rs. p.a.
Rate of increase of expenses 7% p.a.
Rent received from renting second house 240,000 Rs. p.a.
Rate of increase of rent 7%p.a.
Investment yield from investing rent 9%p.a.
Accumulated value of investment at age 60 10,601,411Rs . 240000*((1+9%)^15(1+7%)^15)/(9%7%)
Expenses required at age 602,069,274 Rs. p.a. 750000*(1+7%)^15
Expenses covered by rent received at age 60—662,168Rs. p.a. 240000*(1+7%)^15
Balance expenses to be drawn from corpus 1,407,106Rs. p.a. — 2069274662168
Number of years the corpus would last – 8 NPER((1+9%)/(1+7%)1,1407106,10601411,0,1)
Answer 8.
Manish said
Dear vinay,
In that case as stated by you, more expenses will be required at age 60 while the rent rises at the same rate as mentioned in standard question.As expenses rises more than the rental income the accumulated corpus will vanish very early.
‘The number of years the corpus would last’ means how many years your accumulated corpus would support you.In your case it should be less because your expenses rises more than the rental income you can find the same in calculation as under :
1.)Find the accumulated corpus by taking the rate of return as 9% and also increase your investment every year by 7% as your rent rises by 7% .you can do this calculation by using the growing annuity formula or you can do this manually on excel either way you are familiar with.
accumulated corpus comes to 10601411.
2.)Find the expenses required at age 60.
pv =750000
rate=8%
nper=15
fv=?2379126.
3.)Find the expected rent every year after 15 yrs.
pv=240000
rate=7%
nper=15
fv?662167.
4.)now from the retirement age every year you need 2379126 in order to maintain the same life style.
therefore expenses required = 2379126
less:expenses covered by rent=662167
balance expenses to be drawn from corpus=1716959
5.)How long your corpus would last?
pmt=1716959
real rate=0.92%
pv= 10601411
nper=?6 yrs.
Now you can compare this with the main question.
vinay said
manish sir,
thanks for the reply. my doubt here is — is it assumed that expenses will not grow post retirement? i presume that the real rate in the last step accommodates both rate of interest and the rate of growth of rent. if expenses also grow at 7% after retirement too, how should we calculate the step how long the corpus would last?
krishna kiriti said
Can you please explain the first step as how to calculate on excel? I have the solution from FPSB, but I am not able to understand the process followed.
krishna kiriti said
I am sorry for the trouble.I have found the formula used. Can you please explain how will I able to recognise that I need to use the annuity formula in that step.?
thanks in advance.
Manish said
Dear vinay,
1.)it is assumed that expenses will grow in pre as well as in the post retirement at the same rate throughout the period.
2.)real rate of return has nothing to do with rental income.you just need to adjust inflation by taking the rate of return which u r getting on investment and inflation rate.Remember real rate of return is the concept at which your purchasing power increases while negative real rate indicates wealth destruction.
3.)if expenses also grow at 7%,then the real rate of return comes to 1.87% and the no.of years the corpus would last are to be calculated as follow:
rate=1.87%
pmt=1407106
pv= 10601411
mode= 1
nper=?8 yrs. you can find the same solution in sample paper.I suggest you to solve some old papers first which you can find in the retirement segment and read all the comments while solving problem sums.
vinay said
thank you manish sir,
i am solving the old papers too. Coming to the problem – one last doubt (pls bear with me) what is the assumption about the rent here? will it stop growing after retirement period or will it be growing at 7% after retirement?
how to solve 1) if rent stops growing after retirement.
2) if rent grows after retirement too.
i am a little bit confused about this growing/notgrowing rent after retirement period and its treatment. My logic is this growing/not growing rent affects the fund to be withdrawn every year and it should affect the corpus.
please clarify.
Manish said
Dear vinay,
1.)i think the rent stops growing after retirement while expenses continue to grow at 7% p.a, the same calculation is presented in the last step.
2.)if rent grows after retirement then unlike fixed rent your corpus would last more as it helps you to cover major part of your basic expenses in post retirement period and no need to solve the same in this question.
vinay said
manish sir,
1) i thought the same assumption is rent stops growing in the answer provided.
2) yes, it may cover major part of the expense, but the point here is what is the method of calculation? – how to solve when rent grows?
Manish said
Dear vinay,
in that case there has to be some formula or any other strategy to solve the same i can’t recall that now, meanwhile you have to wait for prashant sir’s response.
Prashant Shah said
Dear all,
Please find the solution
Expense at retirement
PV = 7,50,000
N = 15
I/Y = 7
FV = 2,069,274
House Rent at retirement
PV = 2,40,000
N = 15
I/Y = 7
FV = 6,62,168
Hence, net requirement at retirement = 20,69,274 – 6,62,168 = 14,07,106
Accumulation at retirement using FV of growing annuity = 1,06,01,411
Number of years the accumulated corpus would last
PV = 1,06,01,411
PMT(BGN) = 14,07,106
I/Y = RR
N =? (Ans is 8 years)
Post retirement expense will grow @7% and the same is with rent. Hence net amount will also grow at 7% rate. calculation for the same is as follows:
EXP year 1: 2069274
RENT year 1: 662168
NET year 1: 1407106
EXP year 2:2214123.18
RENT year 2: 708519.76
NET year 2: 1505603.42
Same value can be calculated as 1407106*1.07. And that is the base if these calculations.
Feel free to ask further.
Regards,
Prashant V Shah.
Manish said
Dear prashant sir,
Thanks for the clarity and working, especially for the doubt related to growing rent in post retirement period.
vinay said
Prashanat sir,
thank you verymuch for the explanation. Main point of confusion was the real rate of return in the last step. This real rate of return factors in the rate of growth of funds to be drawn from the corpus. am i right?
Now my other problems 1) what if the rent grows at different rate than the expense, say 8% ? 2) what if the rent stops growing after retirement ?
please clarify.
Prashant Shah said
Dear Vinay,
Your question is absolutely valid. To solve the same you will have to find net cash flow for individual year (preferably in excel or open office) and find the period in which it exhausts.
Prashant.
vinay said
Prashant sir
thanks a lot. I clearly understood the problem and intricacies of the calculation with your and manish sir’s inputs. Thank you verymuch.

Life expectancy is 80 years
Manish said
Dear jasbir,
with the life expectency of 80 yrs the problem may be solved as follow:
age = 28
retire = 60
a.phase = 32
investments:
equity=5000 p.m
debt = 5000 p.m
ACCUMULATION OF EQUITY AFTER 12 YRS
PMT= 5000
RATE=9%/12
NPER=12*12
MODE=1
fv =? 1308314.
ACCUMULATION OF DEBT AFTER 7 YRS (FROM AGE 33 TO 39)
PMT=5000
RATE=7%/12
NPER=7*12
MODE=1
FV=?548421.
TRANSFER 50% ACCUMULATION OF EQUITY TO DEBT.
ACCUMULATION OF EQUITY = 1308314
LESS:50% TO DEBT = 654157
BALANCE = 654157
ACCUMULATION OF DEBT = 548421
ADD:TRANFER FRM EQUITY =654157
TOTAL =1202579
ACCUMULATION OF EQUITY (FROM AGE 40 TO 59=20 YRS) COMES TO 7429700
ACCUMULATION OF DEBT (FROM AGE 40 TO 59=20 YRS) COMES TO 10513716.TOTAL ACCUMULATION=17943417
DEFERRED ANNUITY RATE:
NPER=20*12
PMT=138681
PV= 17943417
RATE=0.58%
CONVERT THE SAME INTO ANNUAL EFFECTIVE RATE =7.18%
jasbir singh said
Dear Manish,
Thanks for your valuable answer, but the condition is he increases his investments in debt by 10,000 Rs after 40 years of age as according to me pmt should 15000pm (5000+10000). Your calculations, according me are accurate. But I still seek recommendations from Prashant sir as there are more sums of dynamic asset allocations in retirement planning mostly for accumulation phase
kindly Prashant Sir help us on this

Dear all,
Help with this sum,
senior citizen have 2 fixed annuities for life time 220000 pm and 82000 pm, he also have 2 house he can let out second property at 25000 pm increasing by 8% pa. Now their expenses per month is 500,000 rs post retirement fix. he plan to take reverse mortgage loan on house where he currently live and its worth is 4 crore Rs. Bank have accepted to give 60% of loan @11.5%. he want to leave an estate of 2 crores after death. life expectancy is 95 years. inflation is 7.5 %. investment can fetch 9.5%. target are ______ and difference by _____
options were achivable, and unachivable and the amount of difference
jasbir singh said
Dear Yash,
According to given condition he is in shortfall of almost more than 2 crore rs
We can find out his current valuation by discounting all future income and expenses with investment rate.
now for income payments, there are to fix annuity of 220000 and 82000 pm for next 35years who’s present value happens to be Rs 384,13,294.66 and for rent income 83,23,722.08, giving the net of Rs 4,67,37,016.74 @9.5% discounting rate
now present value for future expenses of Rs 500000 and the estate of rs 2 crore are Rs 635,98,169.97 and Rs 8,34,710.40 respectively, net Rs 6,44,32,880.37
now we can see there is short fall .almost 1.7 crore Rs which is not possible to cover for reverse mortgage loan as it can only fetch 27,20,908.23 and the maximum lumpsum he can be given is just Rs 15,00,000
Thus it will be good for him to sell house which worth Rs 4 crore now and shift to second house in order to fill shortfall
may be I couldn’t understand the question but let wait for others to reply on same

Dear prashant sir,
can pl tel me what is rate to be consider for ppf 8.7 or 8.8 and how to cal maturity amt for ppf and what is d loan criteria
What the Maturity date and value of a PPF accounted started on 31st March 2013 with Rs.1.00 Lakh and annual investment of Rs.1.00 Lakh on the same date every year till maturity – pl help me with ans
Jasbir singh said
Dear zalak,
Applicable rate for PPF is 8.8% for our exams and if PPF is started on 31st march 2013 then then maturity date will be 31st march 2028 with 16 payments as it requires 15 completed financial years and the same question is important for exam
regards
Jasbir singh
Jasbir singh said
Ans for your question is 3244700.93,
PMT=100000(END mode)
N=16
r= 8.8%
fv=?
question may arise that why 16, as it requires 15 completed years and to go with 15 completed years we did 1 extra payments and that too at the end of year. If it is done 1april2013 then we would just take 15 payments and that too in the beginning mode
first loan can be taken from 3rd year till 6th year, that too of 25% of amount of the balance of preceding two years
Now first withdrawal can be done from the 6th year
Jasbir singh said
one more thing, interest on PPF is calculated on the lowest balance of end 5th day and last day of month,thus at the time of calculating FV of investments which are done on monthly basis we have to look whether the investment is done before 5th date of month or after
zalakthakker said
pl rep for above question
zalakthakker said
Thanks Jasbir,
but in one thing i am confused while cal ppf fv when we hv to use end mode or begin mode and 15 yr or 16 yr,
say if first payment made on 1 july 2013 of ppf then here we use here 15 yr or 16 yr while cal
Jasbir singh said
Dear zalak
Good question to ask, remember this, if payment is done before or on 5th date of any month then the interest will be calculated on the payment for that month. If it is after 5th, interest will not be calculated. Now in this scenario investment is done on 1st july13, the 15 financial years would be 1april,14 to 31stmarch,29. Seeing this I can say that last payment will be on 1july,2028, thus we did 16 payments. we have to go through with this calculations
PMT= 100000 (Bgn mode as month of july will be included)
n= 16, rate = 8.8%
fv= ? (35,30,234.611) Note: this is the amount at 30June,29 we need the amount of march29, we have to remove interest of 3 months
int factor of 3 months will be (1.007053)^3= 1.021309
1.021309= 35,30,234
1 = ?
thus, ans will be 34,56,578.382
In the exam you will also find the option of 3530234 but that’s not correct.
zalakthakker said

Solution for this is given by Vinayak Sir in the practice questions 3 in comment number 16.
9. A&B both , both at 30 have current exp of 35000 pm and are saving Rs 5000 per month till their retirement at 60, with investment return of 8.5%. The post retirement inflation and and returns are 6.5% and 7.5%. If A decides to prepone his retirement by 5 years, how soon his corpus would exhaust compared to B.
Dont remember the solution for this.
These were the questions i could remember. The main problem with this paper is time constraint. You will not be able to finish the full questions paper bcos even in 2 marks there were so many numericals. So first try to attend all the questions which you are familiar with. Please thorough all questions given in the fpsb website. It will help you a lot.

For question on PPF one prashant sir have already answered that it requires 5 completed financial year and for maturity value and date, it is correct.
Now for question posted by sridevi mr A is 35 years spouse and kid of age 5, I would request prashant sir to clear the question of changing asset allocation of accumulated amount or keep it same
now for question number 9,
I have solved in this way
for A, accumulated amount will be
pmt 5000
rate 8.5( monthly nominal rate)
n 25*12(bgn)
fv $4,934,679.04
for B, accumulated amount will be
5000
8.5% (monthly nominal rate)
30*12
$7,791,750.37
Now for expense, for A 35000*(1.065^25) and for B 35000*(1.065^30)
for the years of A,
pmt=168969.468
rate= 0.077913% (monthly nominal real rate)
pv= $4,934,679.04
NPER= ? (29.5301 years)
thus 55+29.5301=84.53018091 (age at which money will exhaust)
for B
PMT= 231502.8157
rate= 0.077913% (monthly nominal real rate)
PV=$7,791,750.37
Nper= ? (33.65725963)
Thus 60+33.65725=93.65725963 (age at which money will exhaust)
Jasbir singh said
My solution for question 9 may be wrong. m not that much confident. I would request Prashant sir, Manish and R Waradarajan or any other to help on this
Manish said
Dear jasbir,
Your methodology is correct but the nper which you have computed is in months not in years.
1.)AGE AT WHICH CORPUS OF MR. A EXHAUST :
a.)nper=29 months (2 yrs and 5 months)
b.)age at which corpus exhaust = 55+2 yrs and 5 months =57 yrs and 5 months
2.)AGE AT WHICH CORPUS OF MR. B EXHAUST:
a.)nper=34 months (2 yrs and 10 months).
b.)age at which corpus exhaust = 60+2 yrs and 10 months = 62 yrs and 10 months.
3.)SO THE CORPUS OF MR A EXHUAST IN 5 YRS AND 5 MONTHS SOONER THAN B.
In the question only post retirement inflation is given so we have to assume postretirement inflation as preretirement inflation in order to inflate the current expenses of RS.35000 p.m.
Jasbir singh said
Dear manish,
Thanks… Now I got the Exact idea and the mistake I did… Thanks
zalakthakker said
Thanks Jasbir Singh/ Sridevi
for giving me quick rep.in quest no 8 post by Sridevi pl help me with detail sol as i had seen comment no 16 for sol but in that only final ans (2980330)is given.
Sridevi said
You can use the following formula for calculating FV in case of a fixed amount increasing annuity:
FV = A * Sn + D * ( SnN )/ I
where A = Initial amount , D is the fixed increase, N is number of instalments, I is the rate and Sn is the FV of an annuity of Rs. 1 for N instalments and at I rate.
For the above problem, we first calculate Sn. For this,N=41, I= 3.5%, PV=0, PMT = 1, END mode, we then get FV = 88.5095, which we take as Sn. D = 2000, A=3000 ( Initial amount). We then calculate as follows:
FV = 3000*88.5095 + 2000 * ( 88.509541)/ 0.035 = 2980357
This solution was given by Vinayak Sir. You can check in the comments section.

HI,
Today i passed RPEB with C grade. 3 mark and 4 mark qust was very tough i am not able able to solve that qust especially 3 annuity qust and 2 rev morgt quet was there .
1 ppf question as post by me and sol given by jasbir was there . 5 qust from fpsb sample paper and question no 9 post by sridevi.
one 3 mark qust
For an investment product guaranteeing a fixed cash flow of Rs. 4 lakh per annum for 20 years beginning four years from the date of investment, what price should be fixed if the same can be invested in financial instruments which can yield 8.25 % p.a. for the four years and 7.5% p.a. for the remaining period of the product?
Solution:
Step 1: BGN, N=20, I= 7.5%, Pmt = 400000, PV= Solve (43,83,631), P/y= 1, C/y= 1
Step 2: BGN, N=4, I= 8.25%, PV= Solve (31,92,437),FV= 43,83,631, P/y= 1, C/y= 1

krishna kiriti said
In 2013 Sample paper Section 2 – question 9 can somebody please explain how he as calculated the “Corpus to be accumulated on retirement” ?
If you have no access to the question paper, the question is as below.Can you please provide a solution for the same.
A 40 year old person spending Rs. 3 lakh p.a. plans to retire at age 63 and expects to live till 75 years. The basic inflation at 7% p.a. and lifestyle inflation at 1.75%
p.a. are expected in the preretirement period. He starts investing for retirement at Rs. 30,000 p.a. in a 10% p.a. return instrument with immediate effect, and
increases the contribution by 20% every year of the prior year investment amount. If the expenses postretirement are curtailed by 20%, what maximum inflation
would sustain his corpus till he survives, if the corpus is invested at 7% p.a.?
zalakthakker said
HI KRISHNA,
Solution: Step 1: To calculate Future value of today’s expenses at retirement age 63. BGN, N= 23 (6340), I =8.75 (7%+1.75%), PV= 300,000*80% (As, in post retirement period expenses will be 20% less) ,Fv= solve (16,52,282), P/y=1, C/y=1
Step 2: Finding Future Value of Ongoing Investments till retirement age 63. As the investment of Rs. 30,000 p.a which is getting invested from now onwards (BGN Mode) is increasing every year by @ 20% p.a. So, in order to find out what amount will get accumulated till retirement age 63? , we have to use formula of Future value of Growing Annuity
.
Future value of growing annuity (FVGA) formulae for BGN mode calculation {Amount (1st Year Saving) * [{(1+R)^n – (1+G)^n} / (R – G)]} * (1+R) R – Required rate of return – 10% G – Growth rate in salary – 20% n Term of Investment – 23 years – 1st year investment will be today at age 40 (BGN Mode) and last investment will be at age 62 (BGN Mode). So the total investment term will be 23 years
.
30,000 * [{(1.10) ^(23) – (1.20)^(23)} / (0.10 – 0.20)] =Rs. 1,71,87, 921 * (1.10) = Rs. 1,89,06, 713
The amount to get accumulated by retirement age 63 is Rs.1,89,06, 713which will be utilized during the post retirement period.
Step 3: As per question language “what maximum inflation would sustain his corpus till he survives, if the corpus is invested at 7% p.a.?”For this we will first calculate inflation adjusted rate of return (i.e use step 2 of retirement planning calculation) and from the stated ANSWER we will calculate Inflation rate
. Part 1: BGN, N=12 (7563), I= Solve (0.876560), Pmt= 16,52,282, Pv= 1,89,06, 713 P/y=1, C/y=1 The “I” (0.876560%) indicates inflation adjusted rate of return.
Part2: Inflation Adjusted rate of return = (1+ Return) / (1+ Inflation rate) Inflation Adjusted rate of return = 0.876560 % = 1.00876560 Return during post retirement period = 7% = 1.07 Inflation Rate = To solve (1.00876560) = 1.07 / (1+ Inflation rate) Inflation = 6.07%

2013 sample paper
Section 4 : Question 7
A person at age 57 has accumulated Rs. 50 lakh towards retirement funds and opts for premature retirement. He purchases an immediate annuity for a total term of
20 years, a fixed monthly amount for the initial period of 10 years and a provision to double the monthly amount in the second 10year period. If the minimum yield
guaranteed in the annuity is 8% p.a., what monthly amount he is expected to receive in the subsequent 10year period?
The solution as per fpsb for calculating the 2nd annuity was
PV of the amount today for second 10year annuity = PV((1+8%)^(1/12)1,10*12,200,0,1)/(1+8%)^10
my doubt is why did they divide that (1+8%)^10 in the end.
Thanks in advance.
R Varadarajan said
Hallo Kiriti,
In the First Part you have arrived at the PV ( today ) for the annuity of Rs.100 pm for the First 10 years (Rs.8397)
In the second Part You have to arrive at the PV ( today ) of the annuity of Rs.200 pm. Just calulating Pv would give you the PV of the annuity of Rs.200 for 10 years at the beginning of the second phase of 10 years ( at the end of first phase of 10 years). To bring it down to the Present value as on today, you have to divide it by ( 1+0.08)^10. Trust this clarifies.

Dear sir
I am not able to understand how the real rate of return came to 0.92% in question number 42..please find the question and the solution below.appreciate your earlier reply
Q)A 45year old man spends Rs. 7.5 lakh p.a., almost the amount he earns, to maintain his family. He expects his expenses to rise by 7% p.a. He has not saved for retirement. He has a second house which he wants to rent at Rs. 20,000 p.m. immediately, the rent expected to increase by 7 % p.a. You advise him to create a corpus by his age of 60 by investing the rent received in an instrument yielding 9% p.a. at the end of every year. You estimate the number of years the accumulated corpus would last taking the received rents postretirement into account.
How long your corpus would last?

If the inflation rate is 4.9% and tax rate is 30% the required rate of return to maintain the value of an investment will be ___________.
Choose one answer.
a. 8%
b. 9%
c. 7%
d. 10%
Please help me with this question.
R Varadarajan said
Answer is c. 7%
Post tax return = 0.7 ( i e 10.3) should match the Inflation (4.9% )to maintain the value of investment
Return required = 4.9/0.7= 7 %
purohitkeval said
can you explain this?
R Varadarajan said
Tax Rate is 30% and inflation rate is 4.9%. To maintain the value of investment means, there should not be any erosion in the value of the investment due to inflation. The net return from the investment is the post tax return and this should cover the inflation so that the value of investment remains unaffected. The post Tax Return is 70%, of the actual return, which should match the inflation 4.9%.. If 70% is 4.9% 100% would be 7% as worked out. You can recheck the same like this – If actual return is 7% , Post Tax Return would be 7%*0.70 = 4.9% which is the inflation rate
