The Industry’s Only Highly Interactive Membership Group Exclusively For Performance And Risk Measurement Professionals
If you’re looking for a place where you can interact with, and learn from, peers in the industry while discussing ideas and issues with people who understand your role and its challenges, then you need to apply for membership in the Performance Measurement Forum.
The Performance Measurement Forum is where performance measurement professionals examine important topics in an atmosphere conducive to information exchange. Members engage with industry leaders to explore a variety of performance and risk topics, implementation strategies, management challenges, and policy solutions that directly apply and influence their proficiencies and effectiveness.
The Performance Measurement Forum is a one-of-a-kind learning and information exchange environment with the capabilities and resources to give today’s performance measurement professionals the knowledge necessary to benefit themselves and their organizations.
This group was founded in 1998, and has become the place for performance industry leaders to discuss various performance, attribution, risk, regulatory, and topics related to the GIPS® standards, as well as learn from the knowledge base that each person brings to the table. Since the beginning, the forum has contributed to enhancing the role of performance in the investment industry. For example:
- Developed attribution standards / recommendations
- Developed error correction recommendations
- Began the development of a certification program for performance measurement professionals, which has since been turned over to the CFA Institute to be used in the CIPM certification program.
- Formed working groups for hedge fund performance, vendor RFPs, and the Internal Rate of Return (IRR).
Our forum combines the talents of our industry’s leading thinkers and practitioners while providing an information network unrivaled in the industry. The forum meets twice a year in both North America and Europe, and each meeting lasts a day and a half.
“We have implemented what we have learned from past forums that resulted in major benefits to our performance measurement accuracy and efficiency. Forum members are credible and experienced and are relevant to our needs.”
-Tim Flanagan, AllState Insurance
“I haven’t been to the Forum for three years. After ‘coming back’ I’m reminded what a high value, high return investment the Forum is. Attending the Forum is one of the best decisions you can ever make. I’ve been part of the Forum for almost 15 years and in my opinion, the Forum meetings are more relevant and useful than other industry conferences.”
-Tricia Bailey, CIPM

“I find the Forum to be a great place for staying up-to-date on trends and news in the performance industry. Participants share their ideas and working challenges in an open-hearted way so I always bring a lot of input with me back from the Forum and I am able to use this in my daily working life.”
