Fund Processing Passport
The Fund Processing Passport (FPP) provides reference information concerning a number of funds, primarily to assist financial institutions when they need to deal in units. The IMA has established a central repository for FPPs in the UK, which fund managers have been invited to populate with FPPs for their funds.
The repository can be searched and individual FPPs downloaded using the FPP search engine.
