The Spaulding Group, Inc. is proud to announce they have been selected again as the winner of the ACQ5 Global Awards 2015 in the categories of US - GIPS CONSULTING FIRM OF THE YEAR - THE SPAULDING GROUP and US - GAMECHANGER OF THE YEAR (PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENT), DAVID SPAULDING - THE SPAULDING GROUP.
“We're very excited to have been chosen for this award for the second year in a row. GIPS® is a large part of our business and to be recognized like this is an honor," said Patrick W. Fowler, TSG’s President and COO.
“Spaulding Verification Services is the GIPS verification arm of The Spaulding Group. This segment of our business has grown significantly. Roughly five years ago, we had less than 10 clients. Today, we are fortunate to work with almost 200 firms, ranging in size from less than $100 million to more than $800 billion USD in assets under management. This includes traditional asset managers, asset owners, hedge funds, private equity, and real estate managers. We are truly a global firm with clients throughout North America, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East,” said Christopher D. Spaulding, Executive Vice President, Strategy and Business Development.
“Our approach to verification is unique in a number of ways: our clients only work with senior level verifiers, verifications are conducted onsite, and we recommend annual verifications (many verifiers recommend quarterly, which only benefits the verifier). We also generally discourage firms from composite examinations; something many of our competitors encourage that we believe has little value for our clients. Our clients have access to monthly webinars and an exclusive, client only print-newsletter to help keep them informed and up-to-date on the Standards and performance in general.
“Clients also receive a unique proprietary GIPS Orientation Kit™, filled with tools and templates to make achieving and maintaining compliance as easy as possible.
“Everything we do is about performance measurement. By being devoted to this segment of the market for 25 years, we understand the subject and what’s needed. In addition to verifications, we engage in consulting assignments on a regular basis. Our consulting practice includes two unique and proprietary services: Software Certification and Operations Reviews” said Christopher Spaulding.
