AUAU Why "II" not correct
adamzell The third-party cannot be GIPS-compliant if it doesn't manage assets, by definition.
williamko For the explanation of the answer I, the revised GIPS standards were adopted in 2010 and effective on 1 Jan 2011 which I found in the study notes.
UcheSam Third-party firm might be GIPS compliant but design composites that is not GIPS compliant. So, investment firm getting composite should focus on the composite being compliant not the third-party firm.
