Embedded derivative: A derivative that is embedded or inherent in a composite contract, the whole of which is not a derivative contract. For example, investment in a credit linked note is a composite contract, that has an embedded derivative – protection sold. A convertible bond also has an embedded derivative – the option to convert the bond into equity. Upon certain conditions, accounting standards (FAS 133, IAS 39) require an embedded derivative to be split and separately accounted for.
