ABI responds to Amendments to Solvency II Delegated Acts published by the European Commission

Following the publication of amendments to the Solvency II Delegated Acts by the European Commission, the ABI commented on developments in infrastructure investment.

ABI Director of Regulation, Hugh Savill, said:

Hugh Savill"The European Commission’s decision to change Solvency II’s capital treatment of infrastructure investment is a huge step forward to support increased investment and growth in this area and follows in depth representations from the ABI over the past months. As long term investors, insurers are well placed to invest in infrastructure projects if the regulatory environment is right.

"The proposals offer a more realistic reflection of the risks involved in investing in infrastructure, and we are pleased that the European Commission is addressing this now."
