This chart shows the contribution of the securitization of the residential mortgage-backed security spread to the CFSI. This spread is measured as the difference between the yield on residential mortgage-backed securities and 30-Year Treasury. It captures the ability of originators to raise capital and the relative riskiness of the securitized asset.
