A measure of the yield disparity that exists between two debt securities of similar maturity and value but with different levels of credit risk. The U.S. Treasury note is typically used as a benchmark to establish the credit spread between a risk-free debt security and a lower rated security for purposes of determining an expected net yield on investment.
