Consider the following two banks: (LG 3-4)

Bank 1 has assets composed solely of a 10-year, 12 percent coupon, \$1 million loan with a 12 percent yield to maturity. It is financed with a 10-year, 10 percent coupon, \$1 million CD with a 10 percent yield to maturity.

Bank 2 has assets composed solely of a 7-year, 12 percent, zero-coupon bond with a current value of \$894,006.20 and a maturity value of \$1,976,362.88. It is financed by a 10-year, 8.275 percent coupon, \$1,000,000 face value CD with a yield to maturity of 10 percent.
