Simmons & Simmons PRIIPs Solutions

The PRIIPs Regulation introduces a new mandatory key information document (KID) for packaged retail and insurance-based investment products from 31 December 2016. The KID will be a three page legal document giving key facts to investors within a highly prescribed form and content which will need to be regularly updated and distributed to investors in a prescribed timeframe.

Who is looking after your KIDs?

Simmons & Simmons has extensive experience with similar documents for our UCITS clients, including banks and fund managers. Our UCITS KIID production factory produces, manages and maintains over 10,000 UCITS KIIDs for a number of clients on a continuous basis. We provide a legally robust and technologically advanced document production and maintenance service. In addition, we have extensive experience with similar key information documents (e.g. the Produktinformationsblatt (PIB) in Germany).

As a result, we believe we are well placed to assist you with your PRIIPs KID requirements.
