The GIPS Organization recently released the exposure draft for the much awaited major overhaul of the GIPS Standards since the last version was released in 2010.
Who Should be Concerned
Existing Compliant Firms
For existing compliant firms, knowing what is changing and how to prepare for it is critical for the continued validity of your firm’s claim of compliance. This is because, once the 2020 version becomes effective on January 1, 2020, existing compliant firms must be in a position to comply with all applicable requirements prospectively, to maintain their compliant status.
Prospective Compliant Firms, Regulators & Investors
For prospective compliant firms and stakeholders (industry regulators and investors) who are already familiar with the current format and requirements of the GIPS, understanding the changes is important because it changes the knowledge base of your professionals and the features of the systems and structures that you, as a prospective compliant firm, may have designed or considered for implementing the Standards within your firm.
All these changes must be relearned, evaluated and systems redesigned to support the new version of the standards.
