PRIIPS Regulation

The EU Regulation on key information documents for packaged retail and insurance-based investment products (the “PRIIPs Regulation”) introduced a requirement to produce a key information document (a "KID") for each packaged retail investment product and insurance-based investment product (“PRIIP”) which aims to improve EEA retail investors' understanding of PRIIPs and the comparability of the information provided to such investors in respect of PRIIPs.

References to the PRIIPs Regulation on this webpage are, in the case of the UK, deemed to include references to the PRIIPs Regulation as it forms part of UK domestic law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal Act) 2018.

As a manufacturer of PRIIPs, HSBC is required to prepare a KID for each PRIIP that it manufactures (which is intended to be offered or sold to a retail investor in the EEA or the UK, including where the PRIIP is offered or sold to retail investors in the EEA or the UK through a distributor) and must publish the KID on its website. The person selling or advising on the PRIIP must provide the KID to a retail investor in the EEA or the UK in good time before any transaction is concluded.

FinSA

The Swiss Federal Financial Services Act (“FinSA”) introduced a requirement to produce a key information document (a "KID") for certain financial instruments (“Swiss Financial Instruments”) which aims to allow a cross-product comparison of different investment opportunities.

As an issuer of relevant financial instruments, HSBC is required to prepare a KID for each such financial instrument it issues which is intended to be offered to investors in Switzerland who qualify as private (retail) clients pursuant to FinSA. The person offering the financial instrument to Swiss private (retail) clients must provide those clients with the KID. A KID is not required in the case of an offer of securities in the form of shares, including share-like securities allowing for participation rights, or an offer of non-derivative debt instruments.

The KIDs available on this website have been prepared in accordance with the EU PRIIPs Regulation. Such KIDs are considered equivalent for FinSA purposes.
