Key Information Documents (KIDs) are required to be provided at point of sale for all Packaged Retail and Insurance-based Investment Products (PRIIPs).

Barnett Waddingham has built a cost-effective tool that many firms are using to produce compliant KIDs and monitor when these need updating. The requirements and how the tool does this are discussed in the videos and articles below.

All you need in one tool

  • Easy to use – makes regulatory compliance and KID production straightforward.
  • Automated for improved efficiency – Excel model calculates numerical content and automatically produces narrative content; Word tool then produces KID in required format.
  • Customisable for all eligible products – from investment trusts to with-profits.
  • Meets your specific needs – our template and model is customisable to reflect your own branding and specific product characteristics.
  • Checks the status – RAG status monitors whether a new KID is required, to ensure regulatory compliance.


How are you coping with KIDs?

In this webinar you will learn how to create KIDs for PRIIPs as we discuss the key inputs and decisions required to ensure compliance.
