And investor in treasury securities expects inflation to be 2.3% in year one 3.1% in year two and 4.2% each year there after assume that the real risk free rate is 2.45% and that this right when we remain constant three year treasury securities yield 6.10% wow five year treasury securities you'll 7.60% what is the difference in the maturity risk premiums on the two securities that is what is MRP five minus MRP three

Please find the below explanation and Don’t forget to give a like! Thank you”

Given:

Risk free rate = r* = 2.45%

3 year treasury security yield = T3 = 6.10%

5 year treasury security yield = T5 = 7.60%

Rate of inflation = 2.3% in year 1, 3.1% in year two, 4.2 each year there after

IP3 = 2.3% + 3.1%+ 4.2% / 3 = 3.2%

IP5 = 2.3% + 3.1% + (4,2% * 3) / 5

= 2.3% + 3.1% + 12.6% / 5

= 3.6%

Formula : Tt = r* + IPt + MRPt

Calculating MRP3

T3 = r* + IP3 + MRP3

6.10% = 2.45% + 3.2% + MRP3

6.10% = 5.65% + MRP3

MRP3 = 6.10% – 5.65%

MRP3 = 0.45%

Calculating MRP5

T5 = r* + IP5 + MRP5

7.60% = 2.45% + 3.6% + MRP5

7.60% = 6.05% + MRP5

MRP5 = 7.60% – 6.05%

MRP5 = 1.55%

So, MRP5 – MRP3 = 1.55% – 0.45%

= 1.10%

MRP5 – MRP3 is 1.10%
