Abstract

For ten years interest rates in the Eurozone have been declining. This has created a situation where loan or bond prepayments and subsequent refinancing transactions are potentially beneficial for debtors. The advantageousness depends on the costs induced. We analyze the favorability of debt restructuring using the method of differential investment and provide critical limits for the nominal interest rate of the new loan up to which prepayment is optimal. The calculations address both fixed and variable rate loans and consider whether the debt agreement is repaid at maturity or in annuities.
