As a consequence of the financial crisis, banks are forced to increase their capital levels. A possible solution to this problem is the issuance of contingent convertibles. A contingent convertible (CoCo) is a debt instrument that converts into the equity of the issuing bank or suffers a write down of the face value upon the appearance of a trigger event.

Due to such loss absorption capacity, CoCos hence automatically provide a strengthening of the capital structure of the bank in case of distress. Indeed, for conversion CoCos, equity is injected on the very moment the bank is failing to meet the minimum regulatory capital requirements or when it is heading towards a situation of financial distress. For write down CoCos, the liabilities of the bank are reduced by the write down value. Since 2009, several CoCos have been issued by a variety of issuers and the total market size approaching the USD 100bn.

This course provides participants with comprehensive and detailed methods to analysis coco bonds and contingent capital in general. Particular emphasis is placed on being able to understand structuring, pricing and regulatory aspects .
