United States Investment Performance Committee

The United States Investment Performance Committee (USIPC) serves as the official local sponsoring organization (country sponsor) for the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS) in the United States. The purpose of the USIPC is to promote the adoption and implementation of the GIPS standards throughout the United States as the common method for calculating and presenting investment performance.

In collaboration with the staff of the Investment Performance Policy Group, we:

  • Provide input from US on global issues and proposals related to the GIPS standards
  • Develop research papers and guidance on performance-related issues 

Country-specific guidance on taxation issues has been removed from the GIPS standards. Learn more about after-tax performance calculation and presentation in the United States.

Publications developed by the USIPC include:

Committee members serve a one-year term, renewable for six consecutive years.
