    No KID/KIID documents available for the ETFs in which I would like to invest 13th Jan 18 at 1:07 PM
    I'm trying to buy a couple of overseas-domiciled ETFs (they're domiciled in the USA and France respectively), but when I try to place the trade my platform won't let me, showing the message "We are unable to trade this security as there is no KID/KIID document available."

    I was vaguely aware that some rules regarding investor information had changed recently, and that platforms have withdrawn some funds as a result of them not complying. However, this is quite frustrating for me as I want exposure to a fairly obscure market which is only available via these two ETFs. Does anyone know if there's any way around this? Or, alternatively, are these overseas-domiciled ETFs likely to make KID/KIID documents available any time soon?
