European Commission Proposes Introducing New Infrastructure Asset Class Under Solvency II After EIOPA Advice
13 October 2015
View Client Update
The European Commission has proposed introducing a new asset class under Solvency II for qualifying infrastructure investments in order to encourage investment by insurers in infrastructure.
The new asset class will benefit from lower capital charges based on an appropriate risk calibration for infrastructure investments, but will also carry more stringent risk management requirements.
Which infrastructure investments qualify will be decided on a range of criteria such as predictable cash flow, ability to withstand stressed conditions and investor protections.
