In Germany it has existed since 4 July 1997, while in France bond strips were introduced in 1991. STRIP, an acronym, stands for Separately Traded Receipts of Income and Principal.

The proceeds-weighted yield pick-up method calculates the yield of the portfolio with the two wing bonds by weighting their cash components.
