Comments Received: 2020 GIPS Standards Exposure Draft

The 2020 GIPS Standards Exposure Draft (PDF) provides enhanced guidance for a wider variety of asset types and managers, fewer specific requirements for asset classes and increased focus on account structure, an option to use money-weighted returns instead of time-weighted returns if certain criteria are met, greater flexibility for firms to promote or advertise claims of compliance, and an option for firms to present a pooled fund report. The last edition of the GIPS standards was released in 2010.
