EMT - European MiFID Template
EMT stands for ‘European MiFID template’. This is an industry agreed information exchange template. The template provides a functional description of the minimum set of data (defining a product’s target market and disclosing its costs and charges) for product manufacturers, such as asset managers, to distributors to help them to fulfil the new regulatory requirements. The EMT is generally used by intermediaries and advisers. Individual investors should refer to the KIID and other fund related documentation.
EPT – European PRIIPs Template
EPT stands for ‘European PRIIPs template’. This is an industry agreed information exchange template. The manufacturer of a packaged product needs to gather up (via the EPTs) all of the underlying data on the funds that make up that product and aggregate them into a PRIIPs KID, to provide to their client. PRIIPs is an acronym for: Packaged and Insurance-based Investment Products (PRIIPs). Individual investors should refer to the KIID and other fund related documentation.
The EMT and EPT templates are updated quarterly and are provided in CSV format. Guidance for converting CSV files for viewing in Excel is available in this document.
