Second GIPS Forum to be held at SUPRA Conference

Teknometry director Anthony Howland will be a facilitator at the GIPS Forum, an industry body that is meeting at the Summit for Performance Risk & Attribution (SUPRA) later this month.

At the 2016 summit, this industry body is for those practitioners who deal with GIPS compliance within their organisation. Similar to the closed-door focus groups, the agenda will be fully attendee-led, bringing you and your counterparts’ top GIPS issues and challenges to the forefront of discussion.

Being part of the GIPS Forum gives you the opportunity to be represented as part of an industry-wide community. As part of this collective, no longer will you be alone when trying to gain clarity on guidance from the CFA Institute, or asking specific questions of your verifier – join together with your industry peers and be represented as one.

This is a closed session for those attendees who deal with GIPS within their organisations. The agenda will be devised pre-event and will include the top issues and challenges that have been submitted by participants.

Agenda points will be discussed amongst participants and this will be facilitated by industry specialists, including Anthony Howland of Teknometry.

Throughout the forum the group will decide on areas where CFA Institute clarification is needed/grievances are felt amongst the participants – post-event, the GIPS Forum will submit this to the CFA on behalf of its members. In the spirit of open and honest discussion, there will be no media in the room to ensure candid conversations.

The SUPRA Conference is being held on the 23rd and 24th November 2016 at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel, London. Further details can be found at
