Reverse Convertibles

What are reverse convertibles?

Reverse convertibles are linked to the performance of a share. Through this coupling, it is possible to achieve a coupon, which is higher than the market rate. In return for the interesting coupon, the investor bears the equity risk, because at the end of the term, the price of the underlying is decisive for the redemption of the reverse convertible bond. If at the end of the term the price of the share exceeds its strike price, the coupon and the nominal amount are repaid. If at the end of the term the share price is below the strike price, then the initially fixed number of shares per nominal amount will be delivered in addition to the coupon.

Protect reverse convertibles are also linked to the performance of a share. In addition to the strike price, protect reverse convertibles also have a barrier (= protect). This additional protection against moderately falling prices means that the coupon is slightly lower than that of traditional reverse convertible bonds.

How do reverse convertibles work?

Investors who do not expect strong price movements but sideways markets will have the opportunity to obtain an interesting fixed coupon with a reverse convertible bond. In return, the income potential is limited to the coupon. In the environment of favorably valued stock markets reverse convertibles offer a very interesting investment opportunity.
