The Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®)
are a set of ethical principles used by investment management firms in order to establish a globally standardized, industry-wide approach creating performance presentations that communicate investment results to prospective clients. Based on fair representation and full disclosure of information to investors, the GIPS were created as a voluntary self-regulatory initiative of the global financial industry that are administered by the CFA Institute
. For more information on the GIPS Standards, please check out the GIPS Fact Sheet
Since 2005, the Liechtenstein Bankers Association (LBA) is the official country sponsor (representative office) for GIPS Standards in Liechtenstein. Together with its local GIPS Expert Group, the LBA actively promotes GIPS in Liechtenstein (e.g. Annual GIPS Roundtable), coordinates the position of Liechtenstein users of GIPS on developments and interpretations of the Standards and acts through our official representative, Mr. Konrad Zawisla, LGT Capital Partners (Pfäffikon), as a link to the global GIPS standard-setting bodies and the CFA Institute. At the same time we closely collaborate with the Swiss country sponsor (Swiss Funds & Asset Management Association, SFAMA) and its GIPS Expert Group.
Firms claiming compliance with GIPS have to notify the CFA Institute. The purpose of this requirement is to address the expressed requests for more information related to GIPS compliance. The required notification form will collect only limited data, while providing more extensive data is optional. For further information, please see the GIPS Compliance Form and Notification Requirement.
