The GIPS Executive Committee, the governing body established by CFA Institute to promulgate standards in measuring investment advisor performance, on April 7 put out for comment a proposal requiring all advisory firms that claim GIPS compliance to make their claim public. Effective January 1, 2015, the committee will list all investment advisory firms claiming GIPS-compliance at www.gipsstandards.org. It's a significant step toward a world of greater transparency with ramifications for your search engine ranking.

Come to this session to learn how you can make the ultimate commitment to transparency by making your RIA's track record GIPS-compliant, which makes it much easier for you to use your performance in marketing your services and provides consumers much-needed assurance of your qualifications.
