 Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®)



What are the GIPS standards?

The GIPS standards are a set of standardized, industry-wide ethical principles that provide investment firms with guidance on how to calculate and report their investment results to prospective clients.

The GIPS standards provide:

  • Firms with an ability to compete across the globe
  • Investors with the ability to make comparisons

Who established the GIPS standards?

  • CFA Institute created and administers the GIPS standards
  • Organizations in 32 countries sponsor and promote the Standards

Country Sponsors

The presence of a local sponsoring organization for investment performance standards, known as a “country sponsor,” is essential for effective implementation of the Standards and ongoing operation within a country. Country sponsors:

  • Locally promote the GIPS standards
  • Provide local market support and input for the GIPS standards
  • Represent country-specific concerns to the GIPS Executive Committee

CFA Society Greece

CFA Society Greece has been endorsed as the official sponsor of the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS) in Greece.
