Recall that on February 04, 2005; the CFA Institute Board of Governors approved the revised Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS), which created a single global standard of investment performance reporting and increased minimum standards worldwide.
The GIPS standards replaced the various region-specific performance standards and are widely accepted among the international industry of investment managers.
Since their introduction in 1999, the GIPS standards have gathered momentum with investment management firms worldwide adopting these voluntary, ethical standards for calculating and presenting historical investment performance.
Strong partnerships with GIPS sponsors to promote and educate the GIPS standards have greatly contributed to the global reach of the Standards.
Proshare WebTV are media partners to the event.
