Convertible Bond

From Open Risk Manual

Definition

Convertible Bond. Bond that gives the holder the right to convert the bond into a fixed number of shares (conversion ratio) if the equity price rises above a specified level (strike price)

If the equity price remains below the strike price throughout the term of the bond it matures and is redeemed like a regular bond. The conversion ratio and strike price are usually set when the convertible bond is issued.
