Join ACA Performance Services' Partner, Charlie Stout, CAIA, CIPM, for the ENGAGE18 panel: GIPS® 2020 – Industry Perspectives on Updates to the GIPS Standards.
By 2020, 10 years will have passed since the last update to the GIPS Standards and more than 20 years since the release of the AIMR PPS (Performance Presentation Standards). In 10 years, the industry has changed; technology has evolved, liquidity concerns increased regulation, some alternative asset classes have become mainstream, and the complexity around an asset owner’s ability to claim GIPS compliance have increased. Discussions are now underway within the industry to provide guidance around updating the standards, the GIPS 2020 consultation paper was released for comments in May 2017, and a GIPS 2020 Exposure Draft is expected in the first half of 2018. This panel of industry experts representing a cross-section of the industry including asset managers, asset owners, asset servicers and GIPS verifiers will discuss some of the major topics being addressed and offer perspectives on how the investment industry will need to adapt to meet the evolving standards.
