An investor in Treasury s

An investor in Treasury securities expects inflation to be 1.75% in Year 1, 3.45% in Year 2, and 3.95% each year thereafter. Assume that the real risk-free rate is 1.85%, and that this rate will remain constant. Three-year Treasury securities yield 6.55%, while 5-year Treasury securities yield 8.20%. What is the difference in the maturity risk premiums (MRPs) on the two securities; that is, what is MRP5 – MRP3? Round your answer to two decimal places.
