De-Leveraged Bonds:

Bonds that pay investors according to a formula that is based on a fraction of the increase or decrease in a specified index, such as the constant maturity treasury (cmt) rate or the prime rate. For example, the coupon might be 0.5 x 10-year cmt + 150 basis points. The "de-leverage multiplier," (0.5) causes the coupon to lag behind overall movements in market yields.
