KIDs for PRIIPs
On 1 January 2018, insurance firms that manufacture Packaged Retail and Insurance-based Investment Products (PRIIPs) will be required by the EU to have new Key Information Documents (KIDs) for each PRIIP. The aim of the PRIIPs Regulation is to encourage efficient EU markets by helping investors to better understand and compare the key features, risk, rewards and costs of different PRIIPs, through access to short and consumer-friendly KIDs.
The KID needs to be a standalone document (maximum 3 pages of A4) and should not form part of other marketing information. It needs to be easily accessible through a customer-facing platform such as a website and made available in good time before the product is sold to retail investors. The technical requirements in the document include a summary of the risk profile, the performance scenarios and the associated costs of the investment product.
