Accounting And Finance For Bankers | Study Notes For JAIIB

Part 1: Accounting & Finance For Banking Short Notes

Module 1: Business Mathematics And Finance

Interest Calculation

Simple Interest: The amount of interest obtained each year in a fixed percentage of the borrowed or lent amount at the start is known as simple interest or flat rate interest.

Interest = Principal x Rate x Time (PRT) where,

Principal (P): Borrowed or Lent amount

Rate (R): percentage of the principal charged as interest (p.a.)

Time (T): Time of loan (in years) 

Interest(I): Total interest amount paid

Compound Interest is the interest paid on both the original principal and the interest that has accumulated.

Compound Interest

It is paid on the original principal amount & accumulated part of interest.

A = P(1 + \frac{r}{n})^{nt}


A: amount deposited

P: Principal amount

R: rate (expressed in terms of a fraction)

n: number of times per year that interest is compounded

t: number of years invested

The Rule of 72

Helps calculate the number of years it will take for money to double whether invested or owed. 72 divided by the rate equals (percent).

Formula: The time period for money to double= 72/r

EMI is the monthly payment a borrower makes on his loan. It consists of both interest and principal repayment. The total monthly amount should stay the same throughout the repayment. In an EMI, the principal and interest on the loan are repaid in equal monthly installments during the loan’s predetermined term. The advantage of an EMI for borrowers is that they know exactly how much money they will need to pay toward their loan each month, making budgeting easier.

Module 1: Business Mathematics And Finance

Present Value

It is the current value of a future sum of money. The three most important factors are 1. time, 2. The estimated rate of return, and 3. the size of future cash flows.

In the world of finance, one of the most fundamental and prevalent concepts is Present Value. It serves as the foundation for stock, bond, and financial modeling, as well as banking, insurance, and pension fund valuation. In other words, the temporal value of money is accounted for by the present value.

What is Present Value - PV ? |


C: Cash flow in the future period

r: the periodic rate of rate or interest (required rate of interest/ discount rate)

n: number of periods 

Future Value

The value of an asset or cash at a specific future date that is equal to a certain amount now. It’s a method of assessing how much an asset or cash’s present value (PV) will be worth in the future.

One can calculate the FV of an asset in two ways:

  1. Simple Annual Interest : 

Original Investment x (1 (interest rate x number of years))

2. Interest compounded annually :

Original Investment x ((1 interest rate) ^ no. of years)

Annuities are a series of fixed payments that are either required of you or provided to you on a regular basis over a set period of time. Payments can be made on a yearly, semi-annual, quarterly, or monthly basis. Ordinary annuities and annuities due are two types of annuities.

Ordinary Annuity: Payments are due at the end of each period, e.g., straight bonds pay coupon payments every six months until maturity.

Payments are due at the beginning of each period, for example, rent. Rent is usually due when you initially move in (at the beginning of the month) and then on the first of every month after that.

The sum of the periodic payments (each) discounted at the set interest rate to represent the money’s time value is the present value of an annuity.
