On 7 August 2015, Insurance Europe published its views on the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority's (EIOPA) recent draft advice to the European Commission regarding identification and calibration of infrastructure investment risk categories.  Notably, Insurance Europe suggests that the draft advice does not remove unnecessary barriers to investment. Specific issues raised include (a) the narrow nature of the proposed definition of 'infrastructure', and (b) that the capital charges exaggerate the risk posed by such investment making it uneconomical. Insurance Europe's response (and other responses) were published online by EIOPA on 18 August 2015.  EIOPA is expected to submit its final advice to the Commission by the end of September 2015.
