On 13 June 2013, Insurance Europe (in conjunction with Oliver Wyman) published a report titled "Funding the Future: Insurers' role as institutional investors". The Report identifies insurers as key potential sources of long-term funding for businesses and notes their ability to have a stabilising effect on the economy and financial markets. However, the Report points to a number of regulatory developments which could potentially affect insurers' ability to continue providing long-term funding to the economy. These include (a) Solvency II (which may result in a decrease in long-term investment due to potential increases in capital costs for investing (re)insurers) and (b) the removal of tax incentives for long-term savings/pensions products offered by insurers in a number of jurisdictions.
