A number of industry bodies have responded to the Commission's consultation on legislative steps for the Packaged Retail Investment Products (PRIPs) initiative, including the CEA and the APCIMS. The British Bankers Association and the IMA have also published their responses to this consultation. The (BBA) said it broadly supports the proposals which seek to implement a level playing field for the selling and disclosure of PRIPs across the EA. It agrees that MiFID should be extended to cover the advised and non-advised "sale" only of structured deposits by credit institutions and investment firms which are subject to MiFID. Structured deposits can provide customers with economic exposure which is similar to other types of retail products such as structured investment products. It would be disproportionate to include other retail financial products, such as current accounts; savings accounts and plans, equities and bonds in a PRIPs regime.
