OMAHA, Mar. 18, 2013/ - - Footprints Asset Management and Research, Inc. (FAMR) announced today completion of its verification for compliance with the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®).  FAMR retained the services of Ashland Partners of Jacksonville, Oregon to examine performance, policies and procedures.

FAMR’s performance dating back to June 30, 2003- December 2010 has been examined by Ashland Partners & Company, LLP, founded in 1992 by Mel Ashland. This third party examination of compliance is within the recommendations of GIPS®. Steve Lococo, President and Senior Portfolio Manager commented, “With ever increasing importance being placed on transparency and integrity in the investment industry, it is important now, more than ever, to show that FAMR abides by high standards of full disclosure and ethical displays of performance.”  Rebecca Hendrickson, Vice President and Accountant commented, “Though the process was arduous, the ability to claim compliance with GIPS® is invaluable.  We endured a thorough examination of our past performance to provide prospective clients assurances when reviewing our performance results.”  FAMR has retained Ashland Partners to conduct quarterly reviews and examinations.
