Exchange Traded Funds: Key Investor Information Documents

Exchange Traded Funds ("ETFs”) are open ended investment vehicles that are designed to trade like an individual security on a trading venue. Most ETFs are index funds replicating an equity or bond index and are designated as UCITS ETFs, which means that they can be marketed freely within the EU.


Under the European directive 2009/65 EC ("the Directive”), from 1 July 2012 ETF sponsors will be required to issue Key Investor Information Documents ("KIIDs”) for all UCITS ETFs. The KIID provides summary information in relation to the ETF to assist investors in deciding whether to make an investment in a UCITS ETF.


The Directive requires that these are made available to investors for the relevant UCITS ETF prior to making an investment.  Set out below is a list of ETF providers relating to ETFs that are available through Credit Suisse together with links to the relevant providers’ websites to assist investors with obtaining the relevant KIID(s).


The information and material on this page is not directed to, or intended for distribution to or use by, any person or entity who is a citizen or resident of or located in any locality, state, country or other jurisdiction where such distribution, publication, availability or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject Credit Suisse to any registration or licensing requirement within such jurisdiction.

Investors should note that ETF products are not capital protected or guaranteed in any way and therefore investors should not invest in such products unless they are able to sustain losses up to the full amount of capital invested. The value of ETFs may go down as well as up and past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. Investment in ETFs involves risks. For fuller details of related risks please view the relevant risk disclosures in each provider’s KIID and other materials.
