Join us as we host a virtual fireside chat with one of the GIPS® founding members, Carl Bacon, CIPM, and David Spaulding, Founder and CEO of the Spaulding Group, where we will be discussing the new rules of the 2020 GIPS® standards and what impacts they will have for asset owners and firms. 

Some of the main questions to be discussed during the webinar are:

    Was there a need to update the standards?
    What are the major changes with the 2020 update of the standards?
    What impact will the changes have on firms complying with the standards?
    Will the update attract more firms and institutions to comply?
    Will implementing GIPS 2020 for large firms be different than the process for medium-and small-sized firms?
    How should firms approach carve-outs?
    How should firms approach estimated transactions costs?
    What impact will the new standards have on the marketing of pooled funds and how they are classified?
