Summary The target redemption note is an index-linked note that provides a guaranteed SLIM Of Coupons (target cap) with the possibility of early termination. In a typical structure, the coupons are calculated based on an inverse floating, London Interbank Offered Rate/Euro Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR/Euribor) formula. Once the accumulated amount of coupons has reached the prespecified target cap, the note will be terminated with final payment of the par. The knock-out criterion depends on a path-dependent state variable defined by the running accumulated coupon sum. In some simplified cases, we manage to obtain a closed form valuation formula for the note value. We propose several numerical schemes for pricing the note under the one-factor and two-factor short rate models. Pricing behaviors of the target redemption note are also explored.
