Investment Performance Services

Investment managers are facing various challenges in the current environment. Clients and stakeholders increasingly demand transparent presentation of investment performance and risks and assurance of the investment management process. Compliance with the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®) has become a requirement of institutional investors selecting investment managers, and is also gaining increasing acceptance in private banking and alternative investments. Regulators are paying increasing attention to investment risk management.

The "Investment Performance Roundtable" is an independent forum for investment performance specialists in Switzerland, which has the following objectives:

  • sharing of experience
  • discussion of practical problems relating to investment, performance, analysis, and attribution
  • discussion of developments and perspectives.

The round table is sponsored by PwC and the Swiss Bankers Association.
