ACST2001 Financial Modelling – Spreadsheet Project Task 3 – S1 2020

In SPT3 we extend your modelling from SPT1 to income streams. Specifically, we generate the retirement income stream lost by withdrawing a lump sum (now) from your super fund. In addition, given an individual’s desired income stream at retirement, we generate the (lump sum) investment needed now to realise that goal. Your modelling needs knowledge of interest rates applicable from today onwards. For simplicity, assume this rate is the Australian 10-year government bond yield as at the end of 2019 (31.xii.19), plus 100 basis points (i.e., a j2 rate). You can use FactSet to find this value. A user of your spreadsheet will need to input the following. Age (an integer) Gender (‘M’ or ‘F’) Desired superannuation withdrawal amount (in dollars)…
