Case Study:

Lets now talk about a couple. John Seymore is a 35 year -old successful engineer and Lily Seymore is a 32 year-old academician working in Delhi. They have a seven year-old daughter Lucy, who is in the first grade, and a two year-old son Joe, who attends the nearby daycare center.

The Seymores will be facing numerous challenges that will require them to practice sound financial decision making, and, in instances where there is a sufficient time horizon, some prudent financial planning. Lily is currently finishing her doctoral

program in Psychology, while maintaining a part-time status at the University where she works. The Seymores own a home, two cars, have approximately Rs 5,00,000 saved up in various savings and investment accounts, and own some assets around the house. They are also invested in their new pension scheme that they maintain at their respective places of employment.

This couple is facing some financial issues that they have not yet addressed. Although they both have jobs where they make decent salaries, they have not really thought about their childrens educational needs. Inflation in the cost of college education is a reality for most parents, which has to be kept in mind when planning for the future. Moreover, Johns mother is in her late seventies, and has been facing declining health. She will not be able to live by herself for much longer. Lily, who originally hails from Mumbai, sends money to her family regularly, but her parents are aging and may need more financial assistance in the future.

Lastly, due to the Seymoress fairly hectic lifestyle, they have not given much thought to their own retirements, or the possibility of how they would handle a layoff from work.


1. What are the areas of financial concerns that the Seymores are currently facing? 2. The Seymores are making some financial decisions that will help them in the future. In your estimation, what are the sound decisions theyve already made? 3. College education is increasing at a rate of 3% per year. If college cost is running at Rs 10,00,000 for a 4-year course today, what will the Seymores need to have saved up for Lucy in 11 years and for Joe in 16 years? Assume that the Seymores are in the 30% tax bracket. You can assume that the Seymores earn 9% on their investments. Assume that the Seymores can only save Rs 5000 a month towards each childs educational funding. Is this amount of savings per month sufficient? 4. What is the opportunity cost for the family while Lily is pursuing her Doctorate in Psychology?

Capital Budgeting:
1. Two projects being considered by a firm are mutually exclusive and have the following projected cash flows: Project A Project B Year Cash Flow Cash Flow 0 ($100,000) ($100,000) 1 39,500 0 2 39,500 0 3 39,500 133,000 Based only on the information given, which of the two projects would be preferred, and why? 2.
