The Spaulding Group, Inc. announced today that it will wrap up its eighth survey on the performance presentation standards (specifically, the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS)) in their next survey. The survey solicits responses from asset management firms throughout the world. These results will form the basis for a detailed analysis, as well as provide a comparison with prior versions of the survey to allow us to analyze trends and global recognition of these standards. Three firms have signed on so far to lend their support to the research effort: BI-SAM Technologies, DST Global Solutions and SS&C.
"The Global Investment Performance Standards have succeeded on a worldwide scale unlike any other industry standard before it," said Patrick W. Fowler, COO. "They have changed the way asset managers, especially institutional, present their performance to prospective clients. Our goal is to continue our regular monitoring of the Standards' acceptance, to discover what changes, if any, have occurred, as well as determine how they've been implemented across the globe."
Survey participants will receive complimentary copies of the survey results. All subscribers to The Journal of Performance Measurement will receive a synopsis of the results in an upcoming issue. It is TSG's policy to ensure confidentiality; participant details will not be shared with cosponsors or other parties.
