Use the following information to answer the problems below.
Consider two banks. Bank A has 1000 loans outstanding each for $100,000, that it expects to be fully repaid today. Each of Bank A's loans have a 6% probability of default, in which case the bank will receive $0 for each of the defaulting loans. Bank B has 100 loans of $1 million outstanding, which it also expects to be fully repaid today. Each of Bank B's loans have a 5% probability of default, in which case the bank will receive $0 for each of the defaulting loans. The chance of default is independent across all the loans.
2) The expected overall payoff to Bank A is:
A) $5,000,000
B) $6,000,000
C) $94,000,000
D) $95,000,000
3) The expected overall payoff to Bank A is:
A) $5,000,000
B) $6,000,000
C) $94,000,000
D) $95,000,000
4) The standard deviation of the overall payoff to Bank A is closest to:
A) $689,000
B) $751,000
C) $2,179,000
D) $2,375,000
5) The standard deviation of the overall payoff to Bank B is closest to:
A) $751,000
B) $2,179,000
C) $2,375,000
D) $21,794,000
Use the information for the question(s) below.
