Deloitte KIID services

Discover how Deloitte Luxembourg can help you manage KIID with a full KIID factory, the KIID diagnostics, and the provision of KIID content.

Your challenges

The market overall welcomed the KIID as a net and evident improvement on the previous simplified prospectus. Experience has indicated however that the exercise has proven more challenging, more costly and more complex than many had anticipated.

Certain divergences in interpretation are also emerging in national interpretation and the evolution of the document is now to be seen in the context of discussion around the draft KID Directive (previously PRIPS) and the sanctions regime of UCITS V.

The KIID hides a sea of complex issues:

  • There are numerous rules to adhere to produce KIIDs: content, language, structure, format, detailed calculations for the risk measure (SRRI) or the ongoing charges, publication, archiving, regulator notification, distributor dissemination, publication (UCITS IV, Commission regulation, CESR guidelines, ALFI FAQ, local laws, etc.).
  • You need to get an ongoing comfort on the quality of your published KIIDs to avoid future claims from investors and regulators.
  • You are just learning by experience that assembling KIIDs is in itself a challenge, and you are wondering whether your team in charge is well equipped to meet the volume, tight delays and quality targets.
