Tutorial Overview

From a retail investor’s perspective, the European investment landscape is complex and challenging. To support retail investors’ decision-making, European authorities published a regulation on key information documents (KIDs) for packaged retail and insurance-based investment products (PRIIPs). Financial firms, including asset managers, banks, and insurance firms, must provide investors with a comprehensive KID for each PRIIP they manufacture. This tutorial provides a high-level overview of PRIIPs regulations and explains the components and purpose of the KID.
