The Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®) are a set of ethical principles used by investment management firms in order to establish a globally standardized, industry-wide approach creating performance presentations that communicate investment results to prospective clients. Based on fair representation and full disclosure of information to investors, the GIPS were created as a voluntary self-regulatory initiative of the global financial industry that are administered by the CFA Institute. For more information on the GIPS Standards, please check out the GIPS Fact Sheet.

Since 2020, the Liechtenstein Investment Fund Association (LAFV) is the official country sponsor (representative office) for GIPS Standards in Liechtenstein. Together with its local GIPS Expert Group, the LAFV actively promotes GIPS in Liechtenstein (e.g. Annual GIPS Roundtable), coordinates the position of Liechtenstein users of GIPS on developments and interpretations of the Standards and acts through our official representative, Mr. Konrad Zawisla, LGT Capital Partners (Pfäffikon), as a link to the global GIPS standard-setting bodies and the CFA Institute. At the same time, we closely collaborate with the official GIPS representation of Switzerland (Asset Management Association Switzerland, AMAS) and its GIPS Expert Group.
