IHS Markit, in collaboration with, the managing agent of the Shared Assessments Program, now enables customers to request the use of Standardized Information Gathering (SIG) questionnaire within KY3P.

"Many financial institutions and vendors are already using or are familiar with the SIG questionnaire and this new upgrade allows us to serve the needs of a broader set of financial firms by making it readily accessible."
