EFAMA alerts that the new PRIIPs rules will confuse and mislead investors
 
The new rules are threatening to cause serious investor detriment by mandating figures, particularly in relation to performance and costs, that will at best confuse investors and at worst mislead them.
 
EFAMA calls for urgent action.
 

We urge EU policymakers to support investors by working urgently with the industry and relevant stakeholders to rectify the serious issues highlighted above and below. In the meantime, they also need to help explain the nature of the figures given to investors. It is vital that trust in investment products, and in the information to be provided to investors, is maintained and enhanced. This needs to be achieved through providing investors with truly reliable and not misleading product disclosures on which to base their investment decisions.
