What does Bond Equivalent Yield mean?
The bond equivalent yield formula is used to determine the annual yield on a discount, or the zero coupons, bond. While making investment decisions, comparing the yield or returns on the investment choices in relative terms is important.
Formula
Bond Equivalent Yield = ((Par Value - Price) / Price) * (365 / d) * 100
Example

A bond has a par value of $2,000, purchased at a discounted price of$1,900 and has 100 days to maturity.

According to the formula, Bond Equivalent Yield is:-

• (($2,000 -$1,900) / $1,900) * (365 / 100) * 100 • ($100 / \$1,900) * 3.65 * 100
• 0.0526 * 3.65 * 100
• Bond Equivalent Yield = 19.21%
