DEFAULT RISK PREMIUM A company’s 5-year bonds are yielding 7% per year. Treasury bonds with the same maturity are yielding 5.2% per year, and the real risk-free rate (r″) is 2.75%. The average inflation premium is 2.05%; and the maturity risk premium is estimated to be 0.1 × (t − 1)%, where t = number of years to maturity.
