With the publication of the updated European PRIIPs Template (EPT) for consultation, FinDatEx are now in the final stages of revising their European PRIIPs template (EPT) used extensively throughout the industry. EPT 2.0 is now under public consultation until 22 November 2021.
Welcome to the Funds-Axis Regulatory Round Up! This month’s regulatory round-up includes updates from: The FSB on Money Market Fund reform proposals, The Central Bank of Ireland with amendments to the UCITS and AIFMD FAQs, ASIC with guidance on crypto-asset related investment products, The FCA with new rules on the Long-Term Asset Fund (LTAF) regime.
Of all the new regulations we have seen over the last few years, few have raised as many concerns, or have been as controversial and polarising as the KID requirements under the regulation for Packaged Retail and Insurance-based Investment Products (PRIIPs).
In an attempt to address many of the concerns raised over the years, the FCA have published a consultation setting out their proposals to change disclosure documents provided to retail investors under the PRIIPs regulation.
