What People are Saying About Us

Jed Schneider CIPM

“The Spaulding Group has successfully positioned itself into the center of the performance world.”

Jed Schneider, CIPM

GIPS compliance is not right for every firm.

Did you know many third-party platforms WILL NOT onboard your strategy unless it has been independently verified?

Many of your prospects also want to see audited performance, and while many firms choose to become GIPS compliant, for many firms, compliance is not possible or just doesn’t make sense.

Some firms are just not ready for GIPS compliance and a performance certification can be a great first step towards compliance.
This rigorous, focused validation of your firm’s performance is a powerful marketing and sales tool that will help you meet the requirements of your prospects and give you confidence in the numbers you show to your marketplace.

What is a performance certification?

While “Past Performance May NOT Be Indicative of Future Results,” EVERYONE wants to see it!

This includes your prospects, TAMPs, model market places, other third-party platforms, and regulators who continue to focus heavily on investment performance in regards to advertising as well as the accuracy of the data behind the returns.

Still, many advisors are hesitant to show performance…some do not calculate it, and others are afraid of running afoul of a regulator, so they don’t calculate it or they keep it to themselves and use it for internal purposes only.
To make it easier for you to advertise your performance so that you can compete on a “level playing field,” we have created a unique performance certification service designed to meet the requirements of third-party platforms and the expectations of your individual prospects.

The Spaulding Group’s proprietary Performance Certification, allows you to have your performance verified so you can showcase it to your clients and prospects, even if your firm does not claim compliance with the GIPS Standards.

During your review we will:

– Verify the accuracy of your performance

-Make sure you have sound policies and procedures in place to calculate performance.

-Provide insights on regulatory best practices and disclosures

-And, if you are thinking about GIPS compliance, this can serve as a great first step because the GIPS standards are used as the framework for our performance certification program.

When appropriate, we will issue you an opinion letter attesting to the accuracy of the strategy’s performance you wish to offer to third-party platforms and prospective clients. 

If we find any issues, we will help you fix them so you can receive the attestation letter certifying the accuracy and appropriateness of your performance.

This letter can be a powerful marketing and sales tool that can help you attract more investors and increase your firm’s AUM.

In these “post-F-Squared” and “post-Madoff” days, what investor isn’t looking for independent assurance that the reported returns are accurate and appropriate.
