Equity linked securities are indirect investments where the return of investment depends on the performance of the underlying equities. In this paper, we review the profit structure of typical equity linked securities through a profit diagram and investigate which characteristics of time series at the investment affect the early repayment of the stepdown ELS based on KOSPI 200 and HSI. We also compare VaRs using the empirical distribution function for risk management.
