Beg Accrual 97,337
Total amount of interest income received 37,481
Ending Accrual 21,048
Interest Received 113,770
I don’t quite understand that means. Does that mean the initial (coupon or interest) accumulated is 97k, then during this period 113k of coupon or interest payment is received. So 97k of that 113k is attributable to prior period’s accrual which gives us 16k remaining (113- 97). Then there’s additional 21k accrual in current month so the 16k + 21k = 37k interest ?
I just don’t follow and the person who explained this wasn’t very clear.
