GIPS Standards for Fiduciary Management Providers to UK Pension Schemes

View the standards (PDF)

The mission of the  Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®) for Fiduciary Management Providers (FMPs) to UK Pension Schemes is to promote ethics and integrity and instill trust by achieving comparability of performance by fiduciary management providers when presenting historical performance to prospective pension scheme trustee clients, and support from regulators for the ultimate benefit of the investment community.

Organizations that adhere to investment performance standards help assure investors and beneficiaries that the fiduciary management provider’s investment performance is complete and fairly presented. Both prospective and existing clients of fiduciary management providers benefit from an investment performance standard by having a greater degree of confidence in the performance information presented to them.
