Fund data hub for PRIIPs regulation requirements

Enabling all actors to exchange efficiently KID data & documents

Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 (PRIIPs Regulation) requires manufacturers of Packaged Retail and Insurance-based Investment Products (PRIIPs) to prepare ‘Key Information Documents’ (KIDs) for these products before they are made available to retail investors, and those selling or advising on these products to provide the KIDs to retail investors before they buy those products.

The new regulation entails three main challenges for the Fund Industry when servicing the Insurance Industry:

  • Exchange Fund data needed by multiple PRIIPs manufacturers
  • Deals with multiple data files and formats
  • Disseminate the new Key Information Documents

The PRIIPs manufacturers should collect data for all underlying packaged assets in order to produce the required document:

  • Narrative information
  • Risk computation information
  • Cost transparency

The cost and industrialization of KID document production will require multi-sourcing coordinated data collection and technological scalable processes

PRIIPs manufacturers, in addition to the obligation of preparing accurate, fair, clear and not misleading KID, should establish periodic and exceptional processes to review the information contained in the Key Information Document.

To support the Fund Industry, Fundsquare is leveraging on its proven UCITS IV data collection and dissemination processes to deliver an efficient and mutualized HUB for the exchange of PRIIPs data and documents.
