Call to the Carnival of the Capitalists

This week I have no special insights to offer, instead I am asking for your help. I'm hoping to leverage some of the collective knowledge of the blogosphere in general and the Carnival of the Capitalists in particular. I and some work colleagues are putting together a presentation on the coming GIPS (Global Investment Performance Standards) Gold standard. GIPS, in short, is a set of standards for investment managers to report their performance in a manner that 'ensures fairness and comparability.' For my part, I am looking for information on the pros and cons of this (i.e. opportunity cost of implementation vs. value added for compliance) as well as perhaps looking to any issues the UK - who by law is now GIPS compliant - experienced in the process. As well, some analysis of how new regulation (in this case self-regulation) will effect the market.

If any of you have opinions on this or have seen any articles/blog posts on the subject please leave a link or let me know your thoughts in the comments.

All thoughts, musings, links are greatly appreciated!

Thank You.
