Price return, capital growth, or indirect return, measures the change in asset's value over a period of time relative to the initial value. The index-level price return is calculated as the weighted average using the market value of each constituent.

 \text{Capital growth}_{t} = \sum\limits_{i=1}^{n} (w_{i,t-1} \times \frac{V_{i,t,RepCCY}}{V_{i,t-1,RepCCY}} - 1)

where:

and  denote constituent i's fair value estimates at times t and t-1 respectively.
denotes the weight of constituent i at time t-1.
