The PRIIP regulation obliges product manufacturers of packaged investment products (PRIIPs), i.e. also capital management companies as manufacturers of investment funds, to provide a uniform basic information sheet based on the model of key investor information. Since mid-2011, the UCITS Directive and the UCITS IV Directive have already required retail funds to provide essential investor information for private customers in the EU.
As things stand at present, the transitional period granted to investment funds under the PRIIP Regulation expires on 31 December 2019. In view of the current legal situation, however, this also means the provision of two mandatory regulatory publications, some of which contain widely differing information. The EU Commission is considering having both documents run in parallel from 2020 on the basis of their legal frameworks (UCITS & PRIIP) and, if necessary, developing a third explanatory sheet in order to ensure that investors can understand the information.
Attention: Relevant PRIIP ratios and MiFID information must already be provided. Among other things, these use insurance for unit-linked products and so-called multi-option products (MOPs), which enable investments in investment funds in the insurance shell.
