GIPS® Standards for Fiduciary Management Providers
The mission of the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®) for Fiduciary Management Providers (FMPs) to UK Pension Schemes is to promote ethics and integrity and instill trust by achieving comparability of performance by fiduciary management providers when presenting historical performance to prospective pension scheme trustee clients, and support from regulators for the ultimate benefit of the investment community.
The GIPS Standards for FMPs are only applicable to those organizations that meet the definition of a fiduciary management provider in The Investment Consultancy and Fiduciary Management Market Investigation Order 2019 (PDF).
