I'm looking at the MSCI Barra index calculator on their website (here: http://www.mscibarra.com/products/indic ... mance.html), and I'm wondering if I should look at the net or gross returns (under "Index Level") if I want to know what the return was with dividends and capital gains reinvested in a tax-advantaged account? I would think gross since that usually means "including everything," but Yahoo and Morningstar use MSCI EAFE net dividends for their international benchmarks. If I should use net, why?
