ACA Services: GIPS® compliance verification

Why verification?

  • Most, if not all, RFP’s sent by consultants and prospects inquire about compliance and verification.
  • The SEC is increasingly scrutinising claims of GIPS® compliance and performance presentations. The FSA and other global regualtors continue to examine performance claims.
  • Most, if not all, electronic manager databases query GIPS® compliance and verification.
  • Verification portrays honesty and the desire to gain the trust of clients and prospects.
  • Enhanced internal controls. Insufficient processes and procedures can lead to increased risk in performance reporting.
  • Peace of mind. Several managers believe their current performance presentations may not accurately and fairly depict the performance of their strategies.
