A bank has a $500 million portfolio of 10-year fixed rate loans, with an interest rate of 5%. The bank has funded the loans with a mix of deposits and bonds. The deposits have a 1-year maturity and pay interest at a rate of 1.5%. The bonds have a 5-year maturity and pay interest at a rate of 4%. The bank's goal is to earn a net interest income of $25 million in the first year.
