Asset Camp’s Historical Stock Market Returns Table lists the long-term performance of 27 stock indexes from around the world.
The 10-year annualized nominal return of each stock index can be found in the highlighted blue column on the historical stock market returns table. The returns are annualized, which means they show the rate of return on an annual basis rather than showing the total or cumulative return for the entire decade.
For example, a 10-year annualized return of 10% is equivalent to a 159% cumulative return.
The 10-year returns are also nominal, which means the returns are before taking into account inflation. An inflation-adjusted return is known as a real return.
We show nominal returns because inflation rates can vary meaningfully by country.
