What you need to know about Fund Processing Passports.
The Fund Processing Passport (FPP) was developed by the European Fund and Asset Management Association (EFAMA) following a set of recommendations published by the FPSG in 2005 to facilitate access to standard information on funds in the European investment fund market.
The FPP provides class-level ‘operational’ information such as ISIN code, contract details and subscriptions/redemptions rules for a fund. Fund managers are responsible for providing an up-to-date version of an FPP which can be accessed via an online platform. The FPP aims to simplify cross-border fund transaction processing and make back-office activities more efficient.
