On 4 February 2015, the European Insurance Occupation Pensions Authority (EIOPA) announced that it is commencing a new workstream on infrastructure investments by insurers.  In particular, EIOPA intends to: (a) develop a definition of infrastructure investments; (b) evaluate potential criteria for a new class of long-term high quality infrastructure assets; and (c) examine the risk profile and prudential treatment of infrastructure investments within the Solvency II regime.
