Set Up

In arbitrage, the practice of taking a long position on a convertible security and taking a short position on the underlying asset of that convertible security. The investor makes a set-up hedge in hopes that the price of the underlying asset will rise, allowing him/her to profit from the increase in the price of the convertible security. On the other hand, if the underlying asset falls in price, the investor profits from the short sale of the underlying asset. A set-up hedge is the opposite of a Chinese hedge. See also: Convertible arbitrage.
