Enter the bond purchase price ($) and the current bond value ($) into the Return on Bond Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Return on Bond. 

Return on Bond Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Return on Bond. 

ROB = (CV-PP) / PP * 100

  • Where ROB is the Return on Bond (%)
  • CV is the bond purchase price ($) 
  • PP is the current bond value ($) 

How to Calculate Return on Bond?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Return on Bond.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the bond purchase price ($). 
    • The bond purchase price ($) is given as: 1500.
  2. Next, determine the current bond value ($). 
    • The current bond value ($) is provided as: 2500.
  3. Finally, calculate the Return on Bond using the equation above: 

ROB = (CV-PP) / PP * 100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

ROB = (2500-1500) / 1500 * 100 = 66.66 (%)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

bond purchase price ($) = 700

current bond value ($) = 900

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer. 

ROB = (CV-PP) / PP * 100 = ?
