Plia Publishes the IA / AFME Equities Electronic Order Handling Questionnaire for Immediate Use

London, 20th March 2024: Plia Systems is pleased to announce the recent upload of the 2024 IA/AFME electronic questionnaire to its platform following its official release by the Investment Association (IA) and the Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME) on the 18th March.

The questionnaire represents the culmination of several months of meticulous work by the Investment Association and AFME. It has been crafted to address key industry concerns and facilitate improved compliance and operational processes within the financial sector.

Bill Stephenson, Plia Systems' CEO, expressed his enthusiasm regarding the new questionnaire's availability on the Plia KYB ("Know Your Broker") platform, which serves both buy-side and sell-side clientele. He noted, "It is with great pleasure that we announce the inclusion of this comprehensive questionnaire on our platform. The interest and subsequent requests from buy-side firms to distribute this to their brokerage counterparts have been significant. We are delighted to support our clients in these endeavors."


In addition to the IA/AFME questionnaire, Plia has other global and regional standards for the FX and equity markets that are in free-form and multiple-choice formats. Most recently, Plia created and published a standard questionnaire for purchasers of "alternative data."  This KYD ("Know Your Data") questionnaire is available to clients to facilitate the due diligence process for these data assets.
