GIPS® Standards for Verifiers

Verification is intended to provide additional confidence in an organization’s claim of compliance with the GIPS® standards. Verification is a process by which an independent verification firm (verifier) conducts testing of a firm on a firm-wide basis, or an asset owner on an asset owner-wide basis, in accordance with the required verification procedures of the GIPS standards. The GIPS standards recommend that firms and asset owners be verified.
