Average Stock Index Returns Worldwide


Stock indizes give a good overview of the total stock market return respectively of the stock return in a specific country. Additionally investing via an exchange-traded fund (ETF) facilitates the reproduction of single stock indizes.


Most of the well-known stock indizes are calculated as price indizes. Thereby dividend payments remain unconsidered. These payments can constitute a significant amount of the total investment return. A performance index, however, will reproduce the real return better. For example the popular versions of the German stock indizes are calculated as performance indizes. Thereby dividend payments are reinvested in the respective stock without tax deduction. For many well-known indizes there is also a performance version beside the popular price index. The returns in the following table result from the performance versions of the respective indizes.
