How can content of the OTC KID’s be changed?

All parameters (such as Currency, Contractual amount, name of manufacturer etc.) in the user interface can be changed to contain your custom information. Every other text in the generated OTC KID is defined by business logic and has been signed off by legal advisory. Therefore, to ensure the compliance of the documents they are delivered as PDF and the texts are fixed and cannot be changed.

Is it possible to pre-fill the section on the manufacturer?

This functionality will be provided in one of the next updates. Currently planned for January 2018

What is the difference between a generic and a specific OTC KID?

A generic (The term used in the Level 3 guidelines from ESMA is illustrative) OTC KID should be based on market data that are representative for the market conditions and is applicable as long as the market conditions have not changed materially. The KID should therefore not be based purely on hypothetical data nor should it include specific contractual data.

A specific (also called transaction specific or bespoke) OTC KID represents a precise trade of your client. So this contrasts the the generic PRIIP which can be used for multiple “similar” trades.

What is the Order Number that I can enter?

The order number is a value which can be used to find a generated OTC KID directly in the docArchive™. Typically we recommend that you use your own internal numbering scheme. This number is not automatically uniquely assigned.
