The Gross Realized Return is the holding period return (HPR), so it includes the bond's price change and any coupon income. The Net Realized Return subtracts financing or borrowing cost; in finance, we often subtract a financing cost (aka, funding cost) to account even for the opportunity cost of an investment.
