GIPS In The News

The Securities and Exchange Commission’s exam chief recently warned sponsors of wrap fee programs to do a better job of monitoring and disclosing the number of “step-out” trades performed by the wrap account’s investment managers, as these types of trades require clients to pay a fee on top of the wrap fee.

“The issue we have is one of disclosure,” regarding wrap accounts, Andrew Bowden, head of the SEC’s Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations, told attendees at the CFA Institute’s Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS) Annual Conference in Boston Sept. 19. “If you’re a wrap fee sponsor, it’s your responsibility to actually monitor the frequency with which the managers participating in your program are actually ‘stepping out’ trades so that you can make proper disclosures.”
