Valuing callable convertible bonds: a reduced approach

Applied Financial Economics, 2004, vol. 14, issue 10, 743-749

Abstract: This paper analyses the pricing of corporate callable convertible bonds. It reconciles the applicability of the reduced form approach with optimal strategies usually discussed in the structural approach. One demonstrates that some conditions causing rational voluntary conversions may be effectively neglected. The main contribution of the paper is to show that adjusted American Capped Call options well duplicate 'classical' optimal strategies. Numerical experiments are then conducted.
