Reverse Convertible Note

A security that combines aspects of a stock and a bond. An RCN operates like a debt security that pays a fixed coupon, which is usually higher than the coupons for regular bonds. At maturity, the holder may choose to receive a certain amount of stock or cash equal to the value of that stock. RCNs allow the investor to diversify his/her portfolio while only incurring the expense of a single investment vehicle.
