I’m pleased to report that the New York Society of Security Analysts (NYSSA) published an article I wrote on GIPS(R) in their current issue (“Major Changes to GIPS,” Vol 2, #3; https://www.theinvestmentprofessional.com./vol_2_no_3/hotzones-compliance.html). This was my first article for this journal and I was flattered to be asked to write it.
I’m also pleased to report that our firm did an extensive amount of publicity on GIPS 2010. In addition to this article:
- John Simpson and I spoke before several different CFA Institute societies on the proposed changes
- Our firm hosted two webinars on GIPS 2010
- I frequently wrote about the subject in our monthly newsletter
- and I frequently commented on it in this blog.
Our comments on these changes remain our own and don’t necessarily reflect the views of the various committees on which I serve. But as active participants in the industry, we feel obligated to publicize any relevant information about the standards. We’re confident that many of the comment letters that were submitted were influenced by our efforts.
We, like you, anxiously await the final document.
