State Street Partners with The Spaulding Group to launch GIPS solution

RELATED TOPICS​

State Street Corporation has partnered with The Spaulding Group (TSG), a provider of investment performance measurement services, to launch State Street’s total Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS) asset owner solution. 

The combination of State Street’s core performance services and operational support with The Spaulding Group’s educational, consulting, and verification capabilities will provide asset owners with the resources they need to meet GIPS compliance.

The GIPS standards, created by CFA Institute, are a globally recognised set of standards for calculating and presenting investment performance based on the tenets of fair representation and full disclosure. While these standards are voluntary in terms of compliance, they have been gaining traction in the investment community, more recently from large public funds who continue to look for ways to align with industry best practices. As a result, there is a critical need in the market to provide asset owners with the support needed to claim and maintain compliance ahead of rising adoption rates in this segment. 

“With GIPS compliance adoption rapidly increasing in the investment community, it’s important that those unfamiliar with these standards have the resources needed to advance their transparency goals about investment performance and achieve compliance,” says Karina Tanny, vice president, performance and analytics product lead, State Street. “This is particularly important as firms continue investing in ESG to ensure consumers of performance results know data isn’t being cherry-picked. Through our partnership with The Spaulding Group, State Street is proud to help fill this market need, provide asset owners with both the education and consulting guidance, as well as the data management and calculation capabilities needed to become GIPS compliant.”

Through the partnership, State Street’s total GIPS standards asset owner solution will provide four key areas of assistance, with State Street managing creation and maintenance, analytics calculation and reporting on behalf of clients. 

“We’re very excited to partner with State Street to provide asset owners with the resources, education, and guidance they need to achieve GIPS compliance,” said David D. Spaulding, founder and CEO, The Spaulding Group. “Our core consulting and verification services, paired with State Street’s technology and data solutions and operational support, will give clients the best of both worlds, and will lead to the GIPS standards being more widely adopted in the industry.”
