Perpetual bond, which is also known as a perpetual or just a perp, is a bond with no maturity date. Issuers pay coupons on perpetual bonds forever, and they do not have to redeem the principal. Perpetual bond cash flows are, therefore, those of a perpetuity.


A perpetual bond pays coupons of 6% every year on a face value of $1,000. The rate of return on the bond is 8.20% every year. What is the price of the bond?
