Principal Protected Market Linked Debentures (PPMLD) are instruments issued with coupons associated with the performance of certain underlying asset, generally an equity index. The Principal portion of the instrument is protected for downside and even in case of any negative return on the underlying equity index, the coupon is not negative. The structure benefits from the positives of debt instrument in form of protection of the principal amount and benefits from positives of equity instrument in form of participation in positive returns. Generally, the instrument do not have periodic payments towards coupons and the coupons are payable only at the maturity of the instrument.

CARE's Valuation of PPMLD structures are opinions on the valuation of a given instrument based on CARE's analysis of the structure and the impact of underlying market variables affecting the structure on the given valuation date. The valuation considers various market scenarios using some of the most advanced simulation software and high quality data on the underlying variables.
