Questions for Public Comment in the 2020 GIPS Standards FRANCE Country Sponsors.pdf



The asset owners association (AF2I) gave us the possibility to explain the new role of GIPS 2020 in their latest newsletter with an article written by Jean-François Bouilly, CFA Society France, GIPS Committee Chair.
The new version of the standard is an important step. It precises many points and aims to facilitate its adoption by alternative asset managers.
Beyond being a technical standard, it is a proof of transparency for asset managers.

 Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®) - Overview

The GIPS standards are a voluntary set of standards developed by CFA Institute in collaboration with over 30 Country Sponsors. The objective of the Standards is to provide an ethical framework for the calculation and presentation of the investment performance history of an investment management firm to prospective clients. The Standards also provide a standardized framework and outline of internal controls necessary to enable performance figures to be directly comparable amongst firms globally.

The Standards are based on the fundamental principles of full disclosure and fair representation.  Through voluntary compliance, firms can build an environment of credibility and trust in the investment industry and demonstrate a firm-wide commitment to ethical best practices as well as strong internal control processes. This promotes industry self-regulation and fair competition among investment firms on a global basis.

To facilitate and maintain the integrity of the GIPS standards, new performance standards are created as needed by the industry and new procedures and controls are implemented to ensure that the GIPS standards are consistently applied, interpreted, and expanded with broad solicitation of public comments.

Check out the GIPS Standards Fact Sheet for more information on the GIPS standards.

You can also read the new publication from CFA Institute: Assistance to Firms considering compiance with the GIPS® Standards' designed to help those considering or already claiming compliance to feel more comfortable about the value and the benefits.​
