# 1st Q in AM

Should we adjust for taxes? 55000 net of tax, so 55/0,8 - gross of tax and 55/0,8*1,04 - nominal. correct?

Not sure, I thought they asked for the after tax return??? If you adjust for taxes you’d get the pre-tax return.

was it 6.4% pre tax nominal return?

close. it was between 5-6%…don’t remember. it’s sum of 2 exp. adj for inf divided by 2.2m pf value. then grossed up for 20pc tax.

Cannot 100% remember. If someone had assets of 500,000, then received 750,000 but decided to put 30% down on a 850,000 home (255,000) they would have 995,000 left. If they needed 55,000 per year - return would be 55,000/995,000 = 5.52% Adjust for inflation (assuming it would be an unhealthy rate of 4%) 1.0552 x 1.04 - 1 = 9.74%

I got a required return of 9.75% for the 1st question in the AM and then 8.48% for the 2nd part after the situation had changed.

yep, 9.74% and 8.48% is what I got as well. I put arithmetic 9.52% on the first one as well just to be extra safe.

I like PJ’s number. I think I Fvked up the 2nd part by adding inflation to it - but cannot remember for sure what I did

after situation had changed the req annual rate of return req was 7.7% (approx)

I wrote 5.52% + 4% inflation but changed the answer last minute and removed the inflation rate. The only cash flow they need is 55,000 of the annual mortgate payment and it’s a fixed payment. Any thought?

inflation definitelly had to be included for first return calculation, they expilictly said in the case that the family wanted to protect the value of their portfolio on inflation-adjusted basis.

Did anyone adjust for the interest earned and taxes paid the 500k in cash? The relevant tax rates were provided.

I didn’t see any rates that they were earning…please tell me there weren’t

Factors that reduce ability to take on risk: - mortgage payments? - possible university tuition? I really struggled to find anything.

i wrote: mortgage and “salary just cover their expenses”

Are you sure they explictly said protect the “portfolio value” from the inflation? I thought they said protect from living expenses grow at the inflation rate which will be covered by their salary anyway. I remember they said keep the minimum value of 500,000 investable assets. If they protect the portfolio value (or investable assets) from the inflation, but not the fixed mortgage payment, it won’t be same as adding 4% or x 1.04 to the first year’s return requirement. You may have to set the FV = 995,000 * 1.04^10 (for the first time horizon before the second distribution), PMT = 550,000 and calcualte i which should be lower than 9.52%. I don’t know… Maybe I’m overthinking on this…

ya dude everyone here is wrong it was 6.6 % for first return and for annual return requirement it was 7.7 % so dont freak out

the question was actually very tricky. wealthy grandparents. parents who cannot cover their expenses so need 9%+ return to cover their required mortgage expenses out of their portfolio.
