GIPS®

CLS believes strongly in open, honest, and ethical performance reporting practices. The Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®)* are a rigorous set of investment performance measurement standards recognized worldwide for their credibility, integrity, scope, and uniformity. CLS claims compliance with GIPS.

This standardized investment performance reporting gives investors the transparency they need to compare and evaluate investment managers, as the thoroughness of the GIPS standards and the requirement for composite reporting eliminates survivorship biases, misrepresentations, and omissions of historical data. GIPS-compliance creates a distinct incentive for firms like CLS to invest significant time and resources into internal risk control mechanisms and the setting of performance benchmarks.
