For asset managers and institutional investors, fiduciary responsibility requires a higher standard of diligence. Elevated regulatory requirements and increased investor concerns have created a greater need for asset managers to improve compliance procedures. Plia Systems provides tools to enhance evaluation, task management, workflow, documentation and reporting capabilities.
Broker evaluation involves more than transaction cost analysis and research votes. In addition to trade execution and research, reviewing the overall capabilities, characteristics and risk profiles of brokers is necessary to fulfill your firm’s fiduciary responsibilities. Plia Systems provides institutional investors and asset management firms with powerful tools to enhance evaluation, workflow management and reporting.
Given the critical role of brokerage firms in executing investment strategy, Operational Due Diligence has become a much more important aspect in analyzing existing and potential service providers. Plia Systems service streamlines the process by automating workflow and ensuring key documents and policies are reviewed on a regular basis.
Scrutiny from industry associations and regulatory agencies is increasing. FINRA Rule 3130, Annual Certification of Compliance and Supervisory Processes, is of specific concern to the investment industry. Plia Systems task management, work flow and documentation tools make what was once an onerous process simple.
