Invest Europe-PAE

This PAE response comments on the proposed approach taken by the ESAs to determine the Single Risk Indicator and the costs contained in the Key Information Document ("KID").

EVCA-PAE Response to KID-PRIIPS Technical Discussion Paper

17 Aug 2015
EVCA-PAE

The EVCA responded on behalf of the PAE to the ESAs Technical Discussion Paper on Risk, Performance Scenarios and Cost Disclosures set in the Key Information Document (KID) for Packaged Retail Insurance-based and Investment Products (PRIIPS). This consultation was launched to prepare the drafting of regulatory technical standards on the detail of the information to be contained in the KID, including calculation of costs and the definition of the risk indicator. The Standards will therefore have an impact on private equity funds when they wish to market to retail customers.
