This week sees the GIPS(R) (Global Investment Performance Standards) Executive Committee (EC) meeting in one of my favorite cities: San Francisco. In addition, the USIPC (United States Investment Performance Committee) will hold its annual “in-person” meeting, and the Americas’ RIPS (Regional Investment Performance Subcommittee) will meet. AND, there’s the annual GIPS conference, an annual event that many look forward to and which our firm is sponsoring, being held here, too. And so, lots of “GIPS stuff” is happening this week. I’ll share with you some of the insights I obtain over the next several days.
