EIOPA consults on infrastructure investment risk categories

Default: Change to:

The European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) published a Consultation Paper on its advice to the European Commission (EC) on the identification and calibration of infrastructure investment risk categories.

EIOPA welcomes views in particular on the following proposals:

  • Definitions and criteria to identify qualifying infrastructure debt and equity investments, which may warrant a different standard formula treatment (chapter 3);
  • Calibration for qualifying infrastructure investments (chapters 4,5,6);
  • Additional risk management requirements (chapter 7);
  • Possible obstacles to infrastructure investments that are not justified by prudential considerations (chapter 8).

The consultation period will end on 9 August 2015.

In February 2015, the EC requested EIOPA to provide the technical advice on the identification and calibration of infrastructure investment risk categories in Commission Delegated Regulation (2015/35) supplementing the Solvency II Directive (2009/138/EC).

In March-April 2015, EIOPA publicly consulted on a Discussion paper on infrastructure investments by insurers​

EIOPA intends to submit its final Advice to the European Commission by September 2015.
