Transparency is a regulatory burden imposed on RIAs by the government and modern marketing.

CFA Institute's Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®) are designed to increase transparency and comparability.
This webinar connects the dots between transparency and success for private wealth advisors.
Presentation of an investment firm's past performance can be a powerful tool for attracting new clients, and regulatory and technology trends are pointing the puck in this direction.
An Exposure Draft of the 2020 GIPS standards is out for public comment, and the proposed changes will be reviewed, with emphasis on the potential impact on private wealth managers.

Advisors who attend this session will learn about:

proposed structural changes to the GIPS standards and their expanded scope.
new treatment proposed for pooled investments.
how and why the GIPS standards apply to more wealth management firms.
why the GIPS standards is are likely to grow more important to private wealth advisors and investors.
requirement distribution changes related to GIPS-compliant reporting.
common myths associated with GIPS compliance.
