GIPS® Year-end Review and Testing Checklist

As year-end approaches, it’s a great time for asset management firms who claim compliance with the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®) to do a thorough review of their GIPS program’s policies and procedures.

Guardian Performance Solutions’ Amy Jones, CIPM, and Arin Stancil, CFA, CIPM, recently co-authored an article for NSCP’s “Currents” that tells you everything you need to do to ensure your firm’s GIPS program and statistics are in compliance ahead of the year-end reporting crunch.

The article gives thorough coverage of topics such as:

  • GIPS Policies and Procedures
  • List of Composite Descriptions
  • Individual Composites
  • Net-of-Fees Calculations
  • Total Firm AUM
  • GIPS-compliant Presentations (CPs)
  • GIPS Program Governance and Oversight

We highly recommend reviewing the full article for specific action items under each topic. You can access it here.

Guardian Performance Solutions advises Assette on the software we’ve developed to automatically calculate all GIPS-required statistical data—including total firm AUM, non-fee paying assets and bundled fees—and maintain CPs for our clients.

If you would like to learn more about how Assette supports GIPS compliance and can help you avoid GIPS errors and omissions in your client reports, fact sheets, pitch books and marketing presentations, please visit our website.
