The Infrastructure Task Force seeks to address the issues surrounding insurer investments in resilient and sustainable infrastructure projects by focusing inter alia on suitable structures, partnerships, risk mitigation and the regulatory environment for such investments. The Infrastructure Task Force cooperates closely with the IDF Law, Regulation and Resilience Policies (LRRP) working group, for example in the discussions with the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) on solvency capital requirements for infrastructure investments. In addressing insurance needs, the Infrastructure Task Force engages with relevant stakeholders to facilitate the development of projects that will meet underwriting standards and also on finding structures that will improve the risk profile of the projects, for example by pooling mechanisms  or other de-risking steps.
