Yours,

P.S. My new edition of exam FM manual, for 2007 exam, is ready, and should be available from New England Actuarial Seminars by the end of the week.

P.P.S. Next week I will start posting questions on the new investments material on FM.

5      9.50
Now:
Code:
Time     Yrs       Rate      
 of       to        to        Acc.
Pymt     Acc.      Acc.       Factor
-----    -----     -----      ------
  0        5       1.0950     1.574239
  1        4       1.0900     1.411582
  2        3       1.0825     1.268480
  3        2       1.0725     1.150256
  4        1       1.0600     1.060000
                              --------
                              6.464557
This assumes the typo is in the solution (first line, the first payment should be invested at the five year spot rate today, not a year from now, as a year from now the 5 year spot rate would be 9.25, and you'd only accumulate 4 years).

To correct the solution, if I'm right, change "a year from now" to "today", and everything else should be perfect.
Yes. I just posted a corrected version. The only typo was in the sentence you quoted. I am sorry I missed that, I corrected that typo in my manual but missed it here. Thanks so much for noticing it.

Yours,
Krzys'

P.S. I promised new material, but since there was a thread on convexity with questions related to this, I decided to write this one. This is still on the test in May 2007. Derivatives stuff (options, forwards, futures, swaps, etc.) is coming, next week, and since I am posting this early, this may help those of you who are studying for Wednesday, November 8, 2006, exam FM.

P.P.S. And November 11 is my grandmother's birthday, so it is a very special day. I better call her now.
