Equity index-linked note: Unlike traditional debt securities that pay a scheduled rate of coupon interest on a periodic basis and the par amount of principal at maturity, the equity index-linked note typically pays little or no coupon interest; at maturity, however, a unit holder receives the original issue price plus a supplemental redemption amount, the value of which depends on where the equity index settled relative to a predetermined initial level. ii. Commodity-linked bear bond: Unlike traditional debt securities that pay a scheduled rate of coupon interest on a periodic basis and the par amount of principal at maturity, the commodity-linked bear bond allows an investor to participate in a decline in a commodity’s price. In exchange for a lower than market coupon, buyers of a bear tranche receive a redemption value that exceeds the purchase price if the commodity price has declined by the maturity date. 20-11
