EU Regulation on key information documents for packaged retail and insurance-based investment products ("PRIIPs Regulation")
The PRIIPs Regulation, which came into effect on 1 January 2018, states that a key information document (“KID”) must be provided to retail investors located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) who are sold a packaged retail and insurance-based investment product (“PRIIP”).
Futures Contracts and Options Contracts traded on the Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (“HKEX”) technically fall within the definition of a PRIIP and accordingly the HKEX has produced a KID for each of the following types of products:
- Derivatives Trading in Hong Kong Futures Exchange Limited ("HKFE")
(Equity Index Futures and Options, Stock Futures, Currency Futures and Options, Interest Rate Futures, Metal and other Commodities Futures)
- Derivatives Trading in the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong ("SEHK")

for the most updated version of the KIDs.
