Insurance Supervisory Law
We are available to advise on the regulatory requirements for intended or realized investments of insurance companies and pension funds (e.g. investment of restricted assets in corporate loans and real estate) and likewise include those considerations in the design of borrowings or issuances (German Insurance Supervisory Act in conjunction with investment regulations such as “Anlageverordnung”). The latter task is de facto inevitable for almost every issuance of corporate promissory note loans (“Unternehmenschuldscheindarlehen”) in order to optimize the placement of loan receivables with institutional investors from the outset. Experience shows that only in exceptional cases will domestic insurers include such loans in their free assets, for which the above restrictive regulatory rules do not apply.
