GIPS Standards

APAF is currently the Country Sponsor of the GIPS standards for Portugal.

To that end, APAF was appointed by the Association for Investment Management and Research (AIMR).

This Committee has been promoting a closer relationship with the supervisory and regulatory authorities of the financial sector (Bank of Portugal, Portuguese Securities Market Commission and Insurance Institute of Portugal), with market associations (APB, APFIN, APFIPP) and the other reference agents in the financial landscape.

The objective is to increase market awareness of the need to implement these standards in Portugal, in line with the reality existing in the more developed financial markets.
