Amendments to KIDs for PRIIPs regulation

The European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs) are currently consulting amendments regarding:


PRIIPs Performance Scenarios

Whether to keep the Probabilistic Approach or to move to an Illustrative Approach. In case the Probabilistic Approach is continued, the ESAs are considering changes to the calculation methodology (e.g. changes to the growth rates, instead of using the realized last 5 years) and to the presentation of the scenarios (e.g. reduce IHPs, remove/change stress scenario).


PRIIPs Costs

  • Presentation of costs - The ESAs are considering changes to the presentation of the costs and suggested four alternatives for the two cost tables.
  • Transaction Costs - The ESAs are suggesting a few changes to facilitate the implementation of Transaction Costs.


Towards the expiry of UCITS exemption from PRIIPs the ESAs are suggesting the inclusion of various topics from the UCITS regulation into PRIIPs. In addition, the ESAs suggest to add past performance to Category 2 products (e.g. mainly for funds, similar to UCITS KIID).


Multi Option Products (MOPs)

The ESAs suggest when applying Article 10 b (i.e. generic KID and specific information) to select at least four “most commonly selected options” and produce an Article 10 a-like KIDs for them (to allow investors to see the “full picture” of scenarios and costs in one document).

UCITS/PRIIPs Distribution It’s Going to be a Nightmare
The FCA has completely buried the initial one-system objective with the formation of a UK version for PRIIP KIDs. Manufacturers of UCITS and PRIIPs that distribute their products to the EU and the UK will need to deal with three separate systems, an EU PRIIP KIDs for all PRIIPs distributed in the EU, a UCITS KIIDs for UCITS distributed in the UK and another UK PRIIP KIDs for PRIIPs (other than UCITS) distributed in the UK. Distributors will need to be very cautious about providing the right document for each combination of products and potential clients. The KI(I)Ds future turned uneven and complicated. The rest of 2022 is going to be very challenging for manufacturers and distributors as they now need to update their systems and disclosures to support the new regulatory amendments, and distributors need to train their personnel on the changes.

PRIIPs RTS v2: Concerns About Misleading Performance Scenarios
PRIIPs suffers lots of criticism around its methodology for Performance Scenarios. Both manufacturers and consumers claim the results are often too optimistic, since they are based on the last 5-year performances and these were positive. In an effort to solve these issues, the ESAs introduce in PRIIPs RTS v2 a new methodology for the calculation of the Favourable, Moderate and Unfavourable scenarios for most funds. Or more precisely, it applies to linear products, called Category 2 in PRIIPs terminology. The new methodology follows a back-testing approach over at least 10 years and the unfavourable scenario is based on the worst scenario found.

Increased transparency for PRIIPs KIDs: Holistic and automated reporting reduces costs and gives clients a more competitive edge
The regulatory dynamics on the capital market will remain high over the coming years. In 2022, following approval by the European Commission and the European Parliament, the new Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) for Key Information Documents (KIDs) of Packaged Retail Investment and Insurance-based Products (PRIIPs) with a revised performance calculation and different methods for calculating transaction costs will come into force. At the same time, the second stage of the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) will become effective with the required provision of pre-contractual and annual ESG documents. In order to meet all requirements and maintain a competitive edge in the dynamic regulatory environment despite increased reporting efforts, it is now time for asset managers and their service providers to holistically reconsider their data management and reporting.
