PRIIPs-Verordnung: Erfahrungsbericht zur Umsetzung im Allianz-Konzern 

Durch die Verschiebung der PRIIPs-Verordnung gewinnen Versicherer und KVGs ein zusätzliches Jahr für die Realisierung von Lösungen für die PRIIPS-KID-Erstellung.

Dr. Marcus Lesser, Allianz Investment Management SE, und Dr. Stephan Schruff, IDS GmbH - Analysis and Reporting Services, berichten aus erster Hand über die wesentlichen Herangehensweisen für eine erfolgreiche Umsetzung und die Anforderungen der Versicherer an die Fondsgesellschaften.
