Various convertible trading strategies such as convertibles/equity switches, asset swaps, and convertible arbitrages are analyzed. The structured products course discussion then turns to warrants, describing the features and characteristics of a warrant and the differences between warrants and options. How a warrant’s premium, parity and breakeven are calculated and interpreted follows. Equity-linked structures are then introduced including principal protected notes and preferred equity redemption cumulative stock.
