Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS)
What are the GIPS standards?
The Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®) provide an ethical framework for the calculation and presentation of the investment performance history of an investment management firm. Investment management firms that comply with the GIPS standards allow clients, prospective clients, and consultants the best opportunity to fairly evaluate their past performance.
Who established the GIPS standards?
The GIPS standards were created and are administered by CFA Institute, the global, not-for-profit association of investment professionals that awards the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA)® and Certificate in Investment Performance Measurement (CIPM)® designations.
Organizations in nearly 40 countries sponsor and promote the Global Investment Performance Standards.
The GIPS standards provide:
- Firms with an ability to compete globally
- Investors with the ability to make comparisons
