  Convertible Bonds: Bonds or Equities?
The Best of Both Worlds
Milan, 11 April - Centro Svizzero - Via Palestro, 2 - 11:00 am

Convertible bonds are fixed-income instruments, but, prior to maturity, the investor may exchange them for a predetermined number of shares. Basically, when the stock markets perform well, the convertible bonds behave like equities; when the stock markets perform badly, the convertible bond will behave like a straight bond.
Alain Eckmann, CFA, Senior Portfolio Manager at UBS Global Asset Management will explain why convertible bonds can be an attractive asset class, with outstanding risk return properties and an asymmetric payoff that can fit most investors’ preferences very well.
