S&P Global, LTIIA member, published today a guest opinion commentary on Prudential Rules For Infrastructure Capital by Frederic Blanc-Brude, head of EDHEC Infrastructure Institute.

In Europe, and further afield, prudential regulatory frameworks are evolving to take into account the characteristics of private infrastructure debt and equity.

The commentary focuses on the progress made so far on prudential regulation for infrastructure debt and equity and examines possible steps to help further define the asset specific characteristic of infrastructure capital. LTIIA continues supporting this work in the context of capital adequacy rules under Solvency II and other similar financial regulation frameworks.

Further down the road, it is investment solutions in infrastructure -as opposed to individual projects- that need to qualify for specific prudential treatment.
