On 20th April AEIP provided its contribution to the consultation of the European Commission on the Green Paper on Ageing. AEIP welcomes the Green Paper on Ageing as it addresses the pressing issue of an increasingly ageing society and provides stakeholders with the opportunity to express their views and offer solutions from their perspectives. Given their role as non-for-profit social protection providers, paritarian institutions are particularly affected by the ageing phenomenon: with that regard, they have been developing solutions to guarantee high level quality services, while safeguarding the long-term sustainability and solidarity of social protection systems in the countries where ...

AEIP gave its input to the European Commission’s targeted consultation on the establishment of a European single access point (ESAP). AEIP believes in the added value of including sustainability data in the scope of ESAP, since these are not always available to investors–contrary to financial data that are already more broadly accessible and available. This would support particularly smaller pension funds that aim to increase their level of ambition in the area of responsible investing. Similarly, it could also support them in implementing the requirements of the SFDR and reduce the costs thereof. In particular, the SFDR requires financial market ...

As a follow up to the meeting of AEIP with DG FISMA’s Asset Management Unit on 30 November, AEIP’s Statement makes a concise overview of the points brought forward, with the aim to assist the EU policy regulators to better understand the particular characteristics of IORPs but to also address these concerns in their future legislative work. Overall, the statement of AEIP underlines that IORPs are pension institutions with a social purpose, managed jointly by social partners, that provide financial services, so they should not be treated as purely financial service providers. Since most IORPs in the EU are small ...
