Thursday, May 16th, 2013

Ann F. Putallaz, Ph.D., CIPM

Principal, AFP Consulting, LLC

Chairs: Erik Johnsen, CFA, CIPM & Marianne Martin, CFA, CIPM

An Investment Performance Group Event

Not all firms are GIPS compliant, but the underlying principles and framework provide a foundation that can have positive effects on other areas of the firm. Rather than simply creating more work for other staff and departments, the GIPS framework can help to promote greater efficiency and tighter internal controls that benefit the entire firm.
