EMT and EPT Information
The European Fund and Asset Management Association (EFAMA) has published the European MiFID Template (EMT), a MiFID information exchange template jointly designed by product manufacturers, such as asset managers, and distributors. The template provides a functional description of the minimum set of data defining a product’s target market, distribution strategy and disclosing its costs and charge from product manufacturers to distributors to help them fulfil the new MiFID II regulatory requirements. These new requirements come into effect when financial products are distributed after 3rd January 2018.
EFAMA have also endorsed the use of the European PRIIPS (Packaged Retail and Insurance-based Investment Products) Template (EPT) as a standardised methodology for distributing PRIIPS information between investment firms and insurance entities. The template provides a functional description of the minimum set of data, including risk and performance calculations and cost and charges information.
The Aberdeen Standard Capital Fund EMT and EPT templates are available on the abrdn website.
