NYSSA’s Performance and Risk Analytics Research Group presents

Second Annual NYSSA GIPS Forum

Wednesday May 17, 2017 3:00 PM - 8:30 PM
NYSSA Conference Center
Available as: Live Session;
Categories: Conference, NYSSA Event, Performance & Risk Analytics, Programs for Members


The Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS) are a set of standardized, industry-wide ethical principles that provide investment management firms with guidance on how to calculate and report investment performance to prospective clients. Investment managers voluntarily choose to abide by the GIPS standards – compliance is not mandated by any law or regulation. For many years, GIPS compliance has been seen as an essential ingredient that can make or break a firm’s marketing efforts in terms of winning new mandates and maintaining institutional clients. To this date, more than 1,200 firms have registered with the CFA Institute as claiming compliance with the GIPS Standards. This event will provide a forum in New York to discuss the most recent developments in the GIPS standards and share views on the challenges and opportunities of their implementation. The Forum will feature GIPS experts from the CFA Institute, GIPS committees, asset owners and asset management firms and will rely on the active participation of the attendees for an exchange of ideas and to identify solutions for current implementation questions.
