In 2018, the team within CFA Institute that oversees the GIPS standards became responsible for all industry codes and standards that apply to firms and asset owners. As of today, these other codes and standards include the Asset Manager Code, the Pension Trustee Code, and the Endowment Code. We will also be taking responsibility for other industry standards that are currently being developed. This change required us to change our current governance structure, including the current GIPS standards committees. Volunteers are actively being recruited to serve on the following CFA Institute committees. 

We are actively recruiting volunteers to serve on the GIPS Standards United States Investment Performance Committee (USIPC) as well as a new chairperson.  The USIPC serves as the United States GIPS Sponsor and acts as a forum for stakeholders of the GIPS standards. The USIPC is tasked with promoting the adoption, implementation, and development of the GIPS standards as industry best practice for calculating and presenting investment performance.
