PEIF is an informal forum for the CEOs of 12 major European insurers (Aegon, Allianz, AVIVA, AXA, GENERALI, MAPFRE, Munich Re, Prudential plc, RSA, Swiss Re, UNIQA and Zurich Insurance Group) to exchange and present views on policy and regulatory issues amongst themselves and with others. PEIF companies represent 68% of the STOXX® Europe Insurance. (Its mission is set out in the section on Goals / Remit).

PEIF has no separate legal existence. It has no budget or fees. Participating companies bear their own costs as part of their individual budgets for interest representation.
The company of the CEO who acts as PEIF chair, acts as PEIF secretariat for the duration of that CEO’s chairmanship. The PEIF secretariat therefore consists of staff already working on public policy issues. It is currently located at Rond-Point Schuman 6, Box 8, 1040 Brussels, Belgium.
