The EEA and UK regimes on key information documents for packaged retail and insurance-based investment products (PRIIPs) provide for a key information document (or ‘KID’). The KID was intended as a short, simple document giving key facts to retail investors in a clear and understandable manner for, among other things, debt securities falling within the scope of the regimes. (Following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, the EEA PRIIPs Regulation initially forms part of UK law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018.)

Consolidated ICMA Quarterly Report articles on PRIIPs up to 2017Q1 are available here. See also subsequent coverage (often combined with MiFID II product governance) on the MiFID II/R in primary markets webpage.

ICMA also supported various documents published by the Joint Associations Committee on Retail Structured Products (“JAC”), which are listed on the Retail Structured Products webpage.
