LE Europe has been appointed by the European Commission to assess the impact of the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR) on the access to finance for business and long-term investments, including infrastructure projects.

On the impact of the CRR on infrastructure financing particularly, Graham Bishop, a consultant on EU financial matters, will advise on the importance of the CRR articles to infrastructure financing. Infrata, advisors on infrastructure financing, will test with market participants whether the CRR actually has had an impact on bank financing of infrastructure.

This note provides the background and objectives of the study, and an overview of how the eventual recommendations of the study will be taken forward by the European Commission.
