Working for GLB Ltd. Treasury Division, an Australian exporter of airport surveillance
systems, one day you are asked to find an avenue to invest your company’s surplus funds
over one year. Based on the in-house research, your company anticipates a 1% increase in

3.2%. After doing some research yourself, you find two different opportunities:

or your company can choose a rollover strategy by buying the 6-month T-bill, holding
it until maturity, and buying a new 6-month T-bill in six months, and holding it until
1. Calculate the annualized total return rate of these two strategies assuming that your
company’s anticipation is correct.
2. Same question when interest rates decrease by 1% after six months.
