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.
