Yield to Worst (YTW) - Definition

The bond yield computed by using the lower of either the yield to maturity or the yield to call on every possible Call date. In Order to calculate the yield to worst it is necessary to calculate all yields to different call dates as well as the Yield to Maturity (YTM).

Several of the factors that are taken into consideration with a yield to worst calculation are somewhat common, while others tend to carry much less chances of ever occurring. Generally, the assumptions are presented as simple cause and effect terms. For example, if there is no prepayment associated with the bond issue, then chances are the market yield will turn out to be higher than the coupon.
