What is the Full form of FCCB? About FCCB
FCCB Full Form – Foreign Currency Convertible Bond or FCCB is, as the name suggests, a type of bond made in foreign currency. It is considered to be a special type of bond. FCCBs are issued in foreign currency or currencies different from the issuing company’s (the company which is asking for the bond) domestic currency.
