ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL ENGINEERING - EXAMPLE 34.1 : (i) In the pricing of engineering bonds, 3 sets of data for Portfolio Value, Probability, Senior Tranche and Junior Tranche are : $2000, 81 %, $1000, $1000; $1000, 18 %, $1000, $0; $0, 1 %, $0, $0. By assuming independent defaults, find the price for : (a) Senior Tranche; (b) Junior Tranche. (ii) Assuming statistical independence of the values in the sample, the standard deviation of the mean (S) is related to the standard deviation of the distribution (s) by : N x S x S = s x s, where N is the number of observations in the sample used to estimate the mean. In a drug development project, let s = 1. Find the value of S if such a similar project is performed 100 times.

ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL ENGINEERING - ANSWER 34.1 : (i)(a) Price for Senior Tranche = 99 % x $1000 + 1 % x $0 = $990. (b) Price for Junior Tranche = 81 % x $1000 + 19 % x $0 = $810. (ii) Let N = 100, s = 1. Then S x S = s x s / N = 1 / 100, S = 1 / 10.
