“We are very proud to have completed the demanding process to claim compliance with GIPS, the global standard for presenting performance histories,” said Marc-André Lewis, Executive Vice President and Chief Investment Officer at CI GAM.

“In addition to the additional step of undergoing independent third-party verification, this was a significant project for a large asset manager such as CI GAM. It represents our deep commitment to building trust with our investor clients, following best practices in investment management and continuously modernizing our business.”

Introduced in 1999, the GIPS standards are universal, voluntary standards based on the fundamental principles of full disclosure and faithful representation of investment performance. The GIPS standards are administered by the CFA Institute and have been adopted by more than 1,800 organizations in 49 markets worldwide, including some or all of 90 of the world’s top 100 asset managers, according to data from Cerulli Associates.

Karyn Vincent, CFA, CIPM, Senior Manager, Global Industry Standards for the CFA Institute, said, “We commend CI GAM for its efforts to put investors first. CI GAM is an example of a leader truly advancing the investment profession by employing a higher standard. We encourage more asset managers to follow their lead in promoting fairness, transparency and ethics in investment performance.

Although not required, CI GAM has completed the voluntary and rigorous process of having its firm verified by an independent third party. Auditing provides assurance that a company’s policies, procedures and performance information have been tested to comply with ethical standards and industry best practices required by GIPS standards. The Spaulding Group, Inc. performed the verification. GIPS compliance consultant, Guardian Performance Solutions, LLC, helped CI GAM establish the processes and systems needed to achieve compliance.
