The promised one-year U.S. CD rate is 4 percent, to be paid in dollars at the end of the year; one-year, default risk–free loans in the United States are yielding 6 percent; and default risk–free one-year loans are yielding 10 percent in Germany.

b. Calculate the dollar proceeds from the German loan at the end of the year, the return on the FI’s investment portfolio, and the net interest margin for the FI if the spot foreign exchange rate falls to $ 1.15/€ 1 over the year.
c. Calculate the dollar proceeds from the German loan at the end of the year, the return on the FI’s investment portfolio, and the net interest margin for the FI if the spot foreign exchange rate rises to $ 1.35/€ 1 over the year.
