The CFA Institute Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®) are globally accepted standards considered industry best practice for investment performance reporting and presentation. Adopted by hundreds of organizations around the world, the GIPS standards have been implemented by most of the top asset management firms.
By establishing requirements for consistent and transparent reporting, the GIPS standards empower investors to compare the past performance of asset managers. Find out how the GIPS standards can help your institution improve performance reporting, increase transparency, and enhance credibility.
CFA Institute is currently seeking volunteers for various GIPS Standards committees. Check out our volunteer opportunities in the CFA Institute Volunteer Community. The deadline to apply for an open volunteer position is Friday, May 15, 2020, so apply now.
