European insurers had almost €9,8 trillion invested in bonds, company shares and other assets in 2015, an increase of 1.7 percent from 2014, according to figures published by Insurance Europe, the European insurance and reinsurance federation.
Solvency II regulatory regime in theory should give greater freedom to insurers to invest their assets optimally for policyholders, according to Insurance Europe, but insurers are concerned that the risk-based measures do not capture the long-term nature of their investments, and can exaggerate risks and capital requirements.
