The Key Investor Information Documents (KIID) provides you with key information about a fund. It is not marketing material. The information is required by law to help you understand the nature and the risks of investing in a fund. You are advised to read it so you can make an informed decision about whether to invest.
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 Standard Life Wealth Fund EMT and EPT templates are available on the Aberdeen Standard Investments' website.

The cost, performance and risk calculations included in the Key Information Document ("KID") follow the methodology prescribed by EU rules.
Investors should be aware that the PRIIPs Regulation requires the AIFM, as PRIIP manufacturer, to prepare and publish a KID in respect of the Class Funds. This KID must be provided to retail investors by the person advising or selling the Class Fund(s) prior to them making any investment decision or being bound by any contract or offer relating to the Class Fund(s). Investors should note that the procedures for calculating the risks, costs and potential returns are prescribed by EU rules. The figures in the KID may not reflect the expected returns for the Class Fund. Anticipated performance returns cannot be guaranteed.
An investment in one of the Class Funds may go down as well as up and past performance is not an indicator of future performance.
