Johnson Mortgage Inc.

Danielle Johnson recently received her finance degree and has decided to enter the mortgage broker business. Rather than working for someone else, she will open her own shop. Her cousin Paul has approached her about a mortgage for a house he is building. The house will be completed in three months, and he will need the mortgage at that time. Paul wants a 25-year, fixed-rate mortgage in the amount of $500,000 with monthly payments.

Danielle has agreed to lend Paul the money in three months at the current market rate of 6 percent. Because Danielle is just starting out, she does not have $500,000 available for the loan; so she approaches William Wheaton, the president of IT Insurance Corporation, about purchasing the mortgage from her in three months. William has agreed to purchase the mortgage in three months, but he is unwilling to set a price on the mortgage. Instead, he has agreed in writing to purchase the mortgage at the market rate in three months. There are Government of Canada bond futures contracts available for delivery in three months. A Government of Canada bond contract is for $100,000 in face value of ten-year Government of Canada bonds.

Questions

  1. What is the monthly mortgage payment on Paul’s mortgage?
  2. What is the most significant risk Danielle faces in this deal?
  3. How can Danielle hedge this risk?
  4. Suppose that in the next three months the market rate of interest rises to 7 percent.
    1. How much will William be willing to pay for the mortgage?
    2. What will happen to the value of Government of Canada bond futures contracts? Will the long or short position increase in value?
  5. Suppose that in the next three months the market rate of interest falls to 5 percent.
    1. How much will William be willing to pay for the mortgage?
    2. What will happen to the value of Government of Canada bond futures contracts? Will the long or short position increase in value?
  6. Are there any possible risks Danielle faces in using Government of Canada bond futures contracts to hedge her interest rate risk?

"As a wife, mother, and full-time student, I was struggling to try to go back to school and take care of my responsibilities. Sometimes you just need a little help, and I appreciate all the help I have gotten from Academic Research Bureau. My papers are on-time and the writers are easy to work with. Thanks for the support!"

Universitywritingservices.com has saved me a lot of time. I was tired of taking the same classes many times over again. As an ESL student, my professors were taking points off of my assignments for my grammar mistakes. It made it very hard to feel encouraged to continue with my studies. Thankful for having found an answer for better grades."

As a working student, I just really don't have the time to write paper after paper and complete assignment after assignment. Working full-time and going to school was nearly impossible until I was able to feel comfortable with the writers on this site. They make me feel secure enough to trust them with my papers. While I'm busy with life, they are busy writing my papers. They always do an outstanding job!

After I ordered a dissertation from your writing service, the first paper that I was given did not met my professor’s demand. I set the paper on revision and the writer made the revision for free meeting all my requirements and I was very satisfied
