Zug, 22. February 2016: Framesoft is very pleased to announce the introduction of its new solution Framesoft PRIIPs KID Generator (FPG).

Framesoft PRIIPs KID GENERATOR (FPG) is a software application that supports financial institutions to comply with the PRIIPs KID Regulation, which came into force in all EU member states on 29 December 2014.

From 31 December 2016, manufacturers and distributors of packaged retail and insurance-based investment products are challenged to provide Investors with a new type of document, the Key Information Document (“KID”) in order to comply with the PRIIPs (Packaged Retail & Insurance-based Investment Products) KID Regulation (“REGULATION (EU) No 1286/2014 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL”).

FPG permits a PRIIP manufacturer to set up, manage and generate all required KIDs by virtue of FPG’s template administration functionality. As well, the manufacturer can decide to “white label” the product KIDs and supply them to intermediaries, if so required and legally permitted. KIDs in general need to follow a number of rules and formatting prescriptions set out in the regulation. FPG is ideally prepared to cope with these requirements, as well as it is flexible enough to be updated and reconfigured in case of amendments to the regulations in force.

Framesoft PRIIPs KID Generator (FPG) covers the requirements as spelled out by the regulation conforming to Article 6, e.g.:

  • Header with product name, required issuer information etc., taking into account market specific product names and corresponding language dependencies.
  • Product objectives and the means for achieving them, e.g. by  
    • direct or indirect exposure to the underlying investment assets,
    • description of the underlying instruments or reference values,
    • specification of the markets the PRIIP invests in etc.
  • Risk Section “What are the risks and what could I get in return”, including treatment of topics required by the regulation, e.g.
    • summary risk indicator
    • possible maximum loss of invested capital
    • appropriate performance scenarios
    • where applicable, information on conditions for returns and scenarios exemplifying risks
    • taxation statement
  • Language Compatibility: Product KIDs can be set up such that translation into other languages can be performed on the basis of a single template.
  • Issuer Default Risk Section covering all descriptive elements required by the regulation
  • Applicable Cost Section in order to inform investors about the expected and potential cost of the investment
  • Recommended Holding Period and Restrictions Section with applicable Subsections, as spelled out by the regulation

FPG provides easy copy & paste, as well as reusability of template sections where applicable or desired. A hierarchical Template Structure is supported by virtue of unlimited database support of template importing. At the same time, all future reviews & amendments of the regulation can be quickly realized using FPGs powerful editing tools.

FPG has been built upon the solid foundation of Framesoft Structured Products (FSP), which provides the complete tool set for defining & treating Structured Products Issues.
