3. Interest only. A derivative security whose cash flow derives exclusively from interest payments on various debt securities. The underlying asset of an interest-only strip is interest paid on debt securities, rather than the debt securities themselves.

Interest-only strips are derived from bonds whose coupons' ownership is legally separated (or "stripped") from the debt securities themselves.
