GIPS Executive Committee

The GIPS Executive Committee (EC) is responsible for the strategic development, promotion, and implementation of the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®). Their purpose is to promote the adoption and implementation of a single investment performance presentation standard throughout the world as the common method for calculating and presenting investment performance.

The EC operates as a “think tank” for performance measurement topics and to research and develop performance standards as needed by the industry. They implement procedures and controls to ensure the GIPS standards are consistently applied, interpreted, expanded, and verified.

The Executive Committee is a standing committee of CFA Institute and serves as the effective decision-making authority for the GIPS standards. The EC also utilizes the GIPS Technical Committee (TC) and other Subcommittees to involve all Country Sponsors and key stakeholders in the ongoing oversight of the Standards. Together they contribute to the development, maintenance, and promotion of the GIPS standards.
