Amendment of the Delegated Acts under Solvency II (Investments in Infrastructure Projects)

On 30 September 2015, the European Commission has proposed an amendment to the delegated acts under Solvency II, which introduces a new asset category for infrastructure investments. For that purpose, it inter alia envisages the introduction of the definitions ‘qualifying infrastructure investments’ and ‘infrastructure project entities'. The new infrastructure asset class shall be framed by criteria that ensure that infrastructure investments exhibit a sound risk profile with respect to their stress resilience, predictability of cash flows and protection provided by the contractual framework. For qualifying infrastructure investments the prudential risk charges shall be reduced, e.g. by a reduction of the stress factor from 49% to 30% for unlisted equity investments in infrastructure. Also with respect to debt investments, certain relaxations are planned.
