Key Information Document (KID)

Information on your investment products

The Key Information Document (KID) provides you with information on packaged retail and insurance-based investment products (PRIIPs). Examples of PRIIPs are:

  • Investment funds
  • Investment objects
  • Unit-linked life insurance policies
  • Structured products
  • Structured deposits
  • Derivatives

The KID gives you a better idea of the risks, costs and targeted return, and enables you to compare different PRIIPs more easily.

 

How do you receive a KID?

When you are about to buy a PRIIP via Internet Banking or Mobile Banking, before you place the order, a link to the KID will appear on the transaction screen. If you place your order with the Contact Centre or at a branch, you will receive the KID via bankmail or by post. We recommend that you read the information in the KID before you purchase an investment product. 

ABN AMRO also offers PRIIPs products. KIDs of these products can be found here:

PRIIPs

The EU regulation on packaged retail and insurance-based investment products (PRIIPs) will apply to many investment products as from 1 January 2018. It will then be mandatory for the bank to issue you with the key information document (KID) whenever you buy a PRIIP. ‘Ordinary’ equities, bonds, deposits and certain pension products will not require a KID. 

In the case of PRIIPs (such as non-European investment funds, exchange-traded funds and structured products) for which no KID is available, the bank will no longer be allowed to carry out purchase transactions from 1 January 2018 onwards.
