Since the regulation went live in 2018, PRIIPs Scenarios have been much in focus from industry and regulators. We have provided here a helpful summary on how they work and highlighted where there are different approaches taken. The regulation is under review however we do not expect to see any revised technical standards before the end of 2019 at the earliest.
