Overview
  • It is now mandatory for asset management firms to have published a Key Investor Information Document for all UCITS funds. This pre-contractual document was introduced to help investors understand the nature and risks of investment products.

    Across Europe, Morningstar helps firms overcome the challenges associated with delivering these compliant documents to investors, media partners, and fund distributors. We offer not only data, but proven expertise in creating communications investors recognise and trust.

    Through our long history of producing fact sheets and other communications for clients, we’ve developed time-tested systems for producing large volumes of financial materials. Firms turn to us for a cost-effective, outsourced KIID solution or to support internal processes, so they can focus on their top priority—their clients.
