About the Converter
Interest rates are quoted either as nominal rates (NACM) or annual effective rates (NACA), but can also be quoted as Quarterly (NACQ) or Semi-Annual (NACS). In order to compare rates, you must ensure they are quoted on the same basis – 5.00% NACM is actually 5.12% NACA.
The C in the names stands for ‘Compounding’ and dictates when the interest earned is added to the balance. If interest is compounded monthly, the next month’s interest will be calculated on the previous month’s balance plus the interest charged or earned in that prior month!
The FMP Interest Rate Converter allows you to convert between NACM, NACQ, NACS and NACA.

About the Debt Sculpting Example
What is debt sculpting and how can it maximise debt in a project? Find out in this three-part tutorial including a downloadable Excel file, a Financial Modelling Podcast and a blog post. This is the downloadable Excel example.
Debt sculpting allows projects to match debt repayments to the cashflows which may strengthen and weaken over time, in line with seasonality, inflation or some other metric.
Be sure to check out the podcast and blog post about debt sculpting.
