Local organizations ("GIPS Sponsors") play a key role in developing and promoting the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®) globally, in partnership with CFA Institute. GIPS Sponsors, composed of one or more industry organizations, provide an important link between their local markets and the GIPS Executive Committee (EC) (the CFA Institute committee who governs the GIPS standards).
GIPS Sponsors have two primary responsibilities:
- Promote the GIPS standards locally
- Represent their local market and provide input on the global development of the GIPS standards.
GIPS Sponsors play an important role in making the GIPS standards relevant to their local markets. They own and protect GIPS translated materials, interpret and support questions on local issues, deliver educational programs, and promote the Standards across the local investment profession.
GIPS Sponsors also actively support the GIPS standards and the work of the GIPS Executive and Technical Committees, ensuring their countries' interests are taken into account as the GIPS standards evolve.
