Fund Processing Passport

Fund Processing Passports (FPPs) provide reference information about a large number of funds – primarily to help financial institutions when buying or selling fund units.

The Investment Association has established a central repository for FPPs in the UK, which fund managers have been invited to populate. The repository can be searched and individual FPPs downloaded.
