We welcome your GIPS® compliance and performance review questions, and we are passionate about using our decades of experience to be a resource for your firm.

Pre-Verification Consulting

Is your firm looking into claiming GIPS compliance? As independent verifiers, we’ve been down this path before. We’re here to serve as your seasoned guide, educating your team on best practices, helping you find the right technology, and designing a unique and customized plan for you to achieve and maintain a firmwide claim of GIPS compliance.

GIPS Compliance & Verification

Verification is an opportunity to turn over your firm’s GIPS policies and procedures and required performance disclosures for independent review. Our team will confirm that your materials are complete and reflect what you are actually doing, identify necessary corrections, and suggest optional best practices or ideas for increased efficiencies. This gives you, and your prospective investors, assurance that you are truly in compliance.

Your firm may also choose to add a performance examination to your verification to provide more in-depth testing of a specific composite or fund’s GIPS Report. This allows you to claim that that strategy’s performance has been audited or examined.

Performance Reviews

Interested in having your performance reviewed by an independent third party, to market on a platform or comply with the SEC Marketing Rule? A third-party review by Cascade Compliance can provide increased credibility for your performance record in the near-term and establish a solid compliance framework one composite at a time, making it easier for your firm to claim GIPS compliance in the future.

Education & Workshops

At Cascade Compliance, we build workshops and one-on-one consulting into our service model. We also offer stand-alone education, including specific training for target groups within your firm, such as marketing/client service, performance/operations, portfolio management, and compliance. Targeted training helps firms new to the GIPS standards communicate the unique impact firmwide compliance has on each group’s unique roles and responsibilities.
