Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS Standards)
The GIPS Standards are a rigorous set of investment performance measurement Standards adopted in 37 countries and recognized around the world for their unparalleled credibility, integrity, scope, and uniformity, enabling direct comparability of a firm’s track record.

The HKSFA Investment Performance & Risk Committee has been providing local market support and input for the GIPS Standards. We are eager to hear from you and to present Hong Kong specific issues (if any) to the GIPS Executive Committee.
