What means Financial information leaflet?

The law requires financial companies that sell complex products, such as investment funds or investment insurance, to provide a “financial information leaflet”.

Financial information leaflets ensure that consumers of complex financial products are informed about returns, risks and costs. The information is presented in a good and easy to understand manner and enables consumers to make responsible decisions when purchasing complex products.

The purpose of a financial information leaflet is to enable investors to broadly get an idea of the product and to compare this offer with other financial products.
