Present Value of a Perpetuity

A Perpetuity is a series of indefinite cash flows. It can thus be considered as a special case of an Annuity where the annuity extends indefinitely. Basically, we can use the Present Value of an Annuity formula to derive the Present Value of a Perpetuity. Just imagine that the value of n (period) in the Present Value of an Annuity formula becomes infinitely large, the value of (1/((1+r)^n)) will tend towards 0, leading to the simplification of the formula.

Formula of Present Value of a Perpetuity

PV = A / r

  • PV is Present Value
  • r is the interest rate
  • A is the Annuity amount
