surob Countrywide is the key word. Be careful!!!
coscyrix D is wrong too. what does entrty barriers have to do with investment performance?
janecb1 Tend to agree that D is wrong too. GIPS does not address leveling the playing field for market entry of firms.
janecb1 commented too soon. its actually a stated objective for GIPS to promote no-barriers entry; i suppose by ensuring that everyone is playing by the same rules entrants are not disadvantaged...
Nuta Key word: barriers. GIPS are not the barrier for the investing firms.
Shalva countrywide vs worldwide :-) need to be very careful
geofin Bad question. Countrywide is a subset of worldwide.

Suppose my objective was to eat more fruit. Today I ate an apple. Then, according to the logic of the explanation, I cannot claim that I met my objective. Because my objective was to eat FRUIT and not just apples!
johntan1979 Bad logic by geofin.

There are 207 countries in the world. By saying countrywide, that should be correct since that is a subset of worldwide, BUT you are only 1/207 or 0.483% correct.
tybe0012 Prestige.. Worldwide
