Have Questions About GIPS Compliance?
Spaulding Verification Services – GIPS® Compliance Support and Pre-Verification Consulting
Many of our clients begin with a one-day GIPS Planning Session (GPS) to give them the guidance and support they need to achieve GIPS compliance.
During the GPS session, we further educate our clients on the GIPS standards, evaluate where their firm stands regarding GIPS compliance and provide guidance on firm definition, defining discretion, and key composite construction requirements and disclosures related to becoming GIPS compliant.
Our clients are left with a “road map” to guide them to GIPS compliance. After the GPS session, we are available to provide ongoing support. We regularly answer questions, give support and guidance by phone or email.
Clients also receive our GIPS Orientation Kit™, which includes the list of materials that we will need to see, a policies and procedures template that helps clients address all of the items the GIPS standards require, a verification checklist to help ensure readiness for verification, as well as a number of other items including copies The Spaulding Group’s Guide to the Performance Presentation Standards and the CFA Institute’s GIPS Handbook.
To learn how The Spaulding Group can support your firm as you move toward or work to maintain compliance, please contact Steve Sobhi at 732-873-5700 or complete our GIPS verification questionnaire and we will provide you with a detailed proposal along with more information on our firm and a number of valuable resources.
