## About This Tool

The online Zero Coupon Bond Calculator is used to calculate the zero coupon bond value.

## Zero Coupon Bond Definition

A zero coupon bond is a bond bought at a price lower than its face value, with the face value repaid at the time of maturity. It does not make periodic interest payments. When the bond reaches maturity, its investor receives its face value. It is also called a discount bond or deep discount bond.

## Formula

The zero coupon bond value calculation formula is as following:

Zero coupon bond value = F / (1 + r)^{t}

Where:

F = face value of bond

r = rate or yield

t = time to maturity
