Key Information Documents

Discover our "one-stop shop" solution PRIIPSLab

The PRIIPs Regulation (1286/2014) is applicable to fund managers (PRIIP Manufacturers) who produce or sell investment products (PRIIPs) to non-professional investors in Europe. 

A Key Information Document (KID) should be provided to the investor before the PRIIP is made available.

The KID should be a maximum of 3 pages and includes information on the risk profile of the product, estimated performance scenarios and the costs investors have to bear when investing in the product.

In addition to PRIIP KIDs, PRIIPSLab also produces UCITS KIIDs, EPT, CEPT and EMT files. 

We cover all categories

Category 1

PRIIPs where investors could lose more than the amount invested, derivatives and illiquid Private Equity funds. 

Category 2

PRIIPs with unleveraged exposure to the prices of underlying investments, or a leveraged exposure with a constant multiple. Category 2 includes standard UCITS funds.

Category 3

PRIIPs whose values reflect the prices of underlying investments, but not as a constant multiple. Category 3 Includes structured products and certain convertible bonds.

Category 4

PRIIPs whose values depend in part on factors not observed in the market (for instance profit-sharing funds).

UCITS Transition and new PRIIPs RTS

The European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs) propose new PRIIPs Regulatory Technical Standards to become applicable on 1 January 2022. As things stand, 1 January 2022 also marks the first day UCITS will have to provide their investors with a PRIIPs KID. It seems however more and more likely that this deadline will be deferred with 6 months till July 2022. In all cases, RiskConcile is ready to assist its clients with a smooth transition.

Download our white paper on the revised PRIIP calculation methodology for performance scenarios. The ESAs propose the new methodology to apply as from 1 January 2022.

The 2021 Steeplechase

Some pressure never hurts and on Feb 5th, 2021, the new proposal drafted by the European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs) is available on ESMAs website. In this revised RTS, some items have been replaced, whereas others were amended and some new elements have been added. In this executive summary, we present the different changes that are to be implemented.

Waiting for Godot

In July 2020, the ESAs informed the Commission on a new draft of the Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) for PRIIPs. But the same EU regulators failed to endorse these technical standards. In this whitepaper we cover in detail what was on the drawing table (and what will probably come our way in the near future.
