interest-inelastic

Characterizing a financial product, investment or portfolio as being relatively insensitive to changes in interest rates. For example, Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) are interest-inelastic because payments are based on inflation rates plus a premium. They are not directly affected by interest rates.
