Convertible Bonds, Hybrids, and CoCos: Issuing, Pricing, and Investing

This course explains in detail a range of convertible securities, their applications and trading strategies (with special attention to hybrids and Contingent Convertibles - CoCos).

Participants will undertake a series of workshops to explore key ideas including pricing convertible bonds, the incorporation of credit risk, handling corporate events such as ratchets, calculating Greeks and simulating trading strategies.

Workshops are built around real world convertible bond examples where participants will work their way through several prospectuses.

All delegates will receive a copy of "The Handbook of Hybrid Securities. Convertible Bonds, CoCo Bonds and Bail-In", co-written by Dr Jan De Spiegeleer and published by Wiley.
