The structured credit product is a way for managing the credit risk on firms, banks or institutions. By means of these products credit risk is transformed to one party to another. These products are a major consequence of the innovations after the 1988 Basel Capital Record.

In the study, we examine the newly developed product: Constant Proportional Debt Obligations (CPDOs). Our aim is to find the leverage optimally. In this purpose, we use the Dynamic Programming techniques in the analysis part.

Keywords: CPDOs, dynamic programming, Legendre transform
