GIPS Standards Information
The Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS Standards) is 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.
GIPS Standards and CFA Institute
CFA Institute created and administers the GIPS standards and partners with local country sponsors around the world to promote the GIPS standards. The success of the Standards is the result of an alliance among experts within the global investment industry and partnerships with country sponsors.
