Published in: 

As a follow-up on the mid-term review of the capital markets union action plan, the European Commission has committed to assess the drivers of equity investments by insurance companies and pension funds (ICPFs). Prepared by Deloitte Belgium and CEPS, this study aims to inform and support the European Commission’s policy initiatives to promote higher equity investments by insurance companies across the EU by (1) identifying the trends in equity investments by ICPFs and (2) analysing and discussing the drivers determining these equity investments.
