CIPM Program

Performance Analysis for Professionals

The Certificate in Investment Performance Measurement (CIPM®) program is the only training of its kind.  The very practical program is divided into two levels and teaches you how to measure performance indicators. The Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS) are an important part of the curriculum.

 Topics such as attribution analysis of portfolios with futures, multi-currency attribution analyses and complex hedge fund risk indicators are covered. As with CFA programs, ethics plays a major role.
