Yield Spread
Yield spread is the difference in yields on different types of Debt securities.
    
Yield - in whatever way it is measured - is the return offered on an investment. The Yield spread is the difference between the Yield on one Security and that on another.
    
One of the key factors in determining Yield is the credit standing - the extent to which there is a Risk of Default - of the issuer of the Security. Government securities are considered to have the lowest Default Risk. Consequently, yields are often measured relative to those offered on government securities.
