This book provides an overview of the risk components of CoCo bonds. CoCos are hybrid financial instruments that convert into
equity or suffer a write-down of the face value upon the appearance of a trigger event. The loss-absorption mechanism is automatically
enforced either via the breaching of a particular accounting ratio, typically in terms of the Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1)
ratio, or via a regulatory trigger. CoCos are non-standardised instruments with different loss-absorption and trigger mechanisms.
They might also contain additional features such as the cancellation of coupon payments.Different pricing models are discussed
in detail. These models use market data such as share prices, CDS levels and implied volatility in order to calculate the
theoretical price of a CoCo bond and its sensitivities, providing the investor with insides to hedge from adverse changes
in the market conditions.The audience are professionals as well as academics who want to learn how to risk manage CoCo bonds
using cutting edge techniques as well as all the risk involved in CoCo bonds.
