EIOPA has issued a consultation paper on its Advice to the European Commission 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
- Calibration for qualifying infrastructure investments
- Additional risk management requirements
- Possible obstacles to infrastructure investments that are not justified by prudential considerations.
The consultation period ends on August 9. EIOPA intends to submit its final advice to the Commission by September 2015.
