PRIIPs Reference data

SRI (Summary Risk Indicator) data, KIDs versions, complexity indicator and other master data

PRIIPs are packaged investment products with investment risk whose value is derived from reference securities and which are part of many financial products.

The entry into force of the PRIIPs Regulation on January 2, 2018 is supposed to create higher transparency for investors when they acquire Packaged Retail and Insurance-Based Investment Products (PRIIPs). From that time on, manufacturers need to procedure appropriate Key Information Documents (KIDs) for every financial instrument relevant to PRIIPs, which must be handed out to the customer by the distributers before the conclusion of a contract.

The identification of PRIIPs relevant financial instruments with its relevant information such as, for e.g. the SRI (risk indicator), the available KID versions, the complexity indicator (or warning) and other master data are displayed under this profile.
