GIPS 2020 WEBCAST

HEAR FROM FACTSET, THE CFA INSTITUTE AND ACA PERFORMANCE SERVICES

In June this year, the CFA Institute released the third modification to the GIPS® reporting standards, creating a foundation to better accommodate alternative investment managers, private wealth firms, and asset owners in their quest to provide clarity and transparency to their investors. While once an optional component of the investment process for asset managers, the GIPS standards have since become a de facto standard business practice expanding to the wealth management and asset owner space.

Download our 30-minute webcast as FactSet discusses GIPS 2020 with the CFA Institute’s Beth Kaiser, Director, Global Industry Standards, together with Richard J. Kemmling, Partner at ACA Performance Services.

Learn from the three different perspectives of our experts—the creator of GIPS, a global GIPS verifier, and a leading provider of GIPS solutions—as they aim to tackle the following:

  • What are the industry challenges the CFA is aiming to solve with this update?
  • What will the impact of GIPS 2020 be for asset owners and wealth firms?
  • What are the benefits of becoming GIPS verified for buy-side firms?
  • What are some of the key components of a technology solution that institutions need to look for when seeking to comply with GIPS 2020?
  • And much more
