In an ever-evolving industry, the demand for more information and transparency from asset managers continues to increase. Investors seeking comparability amongst asset managers, including real estate firms, now effectively require managers to comply with voluntary ethics-based reporting guidelines such as the GIPS standards. While real estate firms targeting institutional dollars have likely heard of the GIPS standards, a focus on core business activities often takes precedence and these firms are often unable to find the time or resources. In the current real estate investment environment, many firms want to understand the core components of the GIPS standards before committing the resources needed to attain compliance. Firms that already claim compliance seek to mitigate the risk of becoming noncompliant. This paper provides useful information for both objectives.
Compliance is Easier Than You Think: The Real Estate Manager's Path to Compliance with the GIPS Standards focuses on unique issues facing real estate managers and the common solutions to those issues. We provide a market overview and cover frequent concerns for firms claiming compliance with the GIPS standards, as well as a brief comparison of the GIPS standards to the NCREIF and PREA Reporting Standards (formerly known as REIS).
