Interest rate risk is measured by time to maturity and coupon rate
Risk-free interest is the rate of interest which exists when the expected risk of the economic transaction is zero. In most cases, the general interest rates in major banks of a country reflects the nominal interest rate, which is risk free. The real interest rate is simply the nominal interest rate minus the rate of inflation.

Bonds issued at a premium offer an interest rate that is above the market interest rate. Typically, a bond issuer offers a premium interest rate to offset higher risk associated with a bond offering that has a low credit rating. A purchaser of a bond offered at a premium will receive a higher interest rate but will incur a higher degree of credit risk.
