Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®)

GIPS standards are a globally accepted methodology for calculating and presenting investment firms’ performance history that are widely relied upon by investment firms, their clients, and prospective clients for ensuring consistency of investment firm results.

As an investor, you can rely on the performance presentations given to you by GIPS-compliant firms. Claiming compliance with the GIPS standards demonstrates a firm-wide commitment to ethical best practices and that the firm employs strong internal control processes.

What do the GIPS standards provide you?

  • Confidence in the integrity of presentations from compliant firms
  • The ability to compare performance across different firms

The CFA Institute provides an overview of why GIPS® compliance matters to investors and it can be found here.
