Taking into account the new regulatory framework put in place in the context of the PRIIPs Regulation, ESMA is now consulting stakeholders on the amended proposals set out below on the requirements on cost disclosure under Article 25(3) of the ELTIF Regulation

Next steps: ESMA is seeking stakeholders’ feedback to the consultation paper by 29 June 2019. Finalization of the draft RTS to be submitted to the European Commission for endorsement.
