Comments on proposal for establishment of InvestEU programme

Insurance Europe's response to the European Commission’s consultation on its proposed investEU programme. This programme aims to bring together various EU financial instruments and expand the Investment Plan for Europe.

The availability of a wide range of investment assets is key to meet insurers’ investment needs. The investEU programme has the potential to address the investment gap in the EU and to stimulate additional long-term viable assets that insurers can invest in. It is key that public support is provided only when actually needed, and intervention by national/multilateral development banks should not create the unintended effect of crowding out private investment.
