Corridor option
The Holder of a corridor Option receives a Coupon at the end of the lifetime of the corridor whose magnitude depends upon the behaviour of a specified Spot rate during the lifetime of the corridor. For each day on which the Spot rate (typically an official fixing rate observation)remains within the chosen Spot Range (the Accrual corridor) the Holder accrues one day’s worth of Coupon Interest. A variation is the knockout corridor Option. In this structure, the Holder ceases to accrue Coupon Interest as soon as the Spot rate leaves the Range. Even if the Spot rate subsequently re-enters the Range, the Holder does not continue to accrue Coupon Interest. At the end of the Option’s lifetime, the accrued Coupon is calculated according to the following formula: If the Accrual corridor is one-sided (the other side of the Range bing Open-ended), it is known as a wall Option. Typically, corridor options are imbedded in a structured note, sometimes called a Range note, that pays a higher Yield than the corresponding vanilla Debt as Long as the Underlying rate remains sufficiently Long within the Accrual corridor. A similar Option to the corridor Option is the Range binary, a binary Option which pays a fixed Coupon amount if the Range is not breached but nothing if it is breached.
