An investor has $10m to invest and has the following options: 1) depositing it in a US bank account paying 3% annually, or 2) depositing it in a German
bank, where the annual rate of interest is only 2%. Assume that today the current spot exchange rate for the Euro is given as $1.2750, while the 1-year Dollar-Euro forward rate is posted as 1.2995.
a. Based on your knowledge of the relationship between interest rate differentials and the current dollar-euro forward premium or discount, in which country should the investor deposit her money? why?
b. If you had the power to adjust the German interest rate, with all else constant, what rate would you establish, such that the investor is totally indifferent between depositing in either countries? Show your work and the logic behind it.
