A CoCo stands for a bond that will be converted into equity as soon as the bank gets into a life threatening situation. As soon as the solvency of the bank drops below acceptable standards, the bonds are converted into equity. Some banks are already engineering new CoCo-note types or consider paying out CoCo-bonuses. For regulators, issuing banks, rating agencies, investors and trading desks around the globe. This makes this book a must read for everybody who wants to understand this asset class.
