I spoke earlier this year on Asset.TV, on a panel that addressed hedge funds, including compliance matters and the potential for them to comply with the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS(R)).
Lillian Jones, CEO of Jones Emerging Investment Advisors, Inc. chaired the panel. I was joined by Russell D. Kamp of Kamp Consulting Solutions, LLC and Oscar Gil Vollmer, CFO and COO of Appomattox Advisory.
As you might expect, my focus was on GIPS compliance. Our firm has encouraged the hedge fund community to embrace the Standards, as we believe they continue to offer "best practices" for the dissemination of past performance to prospective clients. In addition, compliance for hedge funds should be much simpler than for long-only managers.
