French term or phrase: support d'investissement
"Le dépôt de ces actifs représentatifs doit se faire auprès d’un établissement de crédit préalablement agréé par le Commissariat aux Assurances (art. 37 de la Loi modifiée du 6 décembre 1991 sur le secteur des assurances), quels que soient les supports d’investissement du contrat : Fonds Internes dédiés ou collectifs, Fonds en Euros et Fonds Externes."

I don't think 'support' means 'backing' or 'support' here but something closer to 'format.' Can anyone confirm?

Explanation:
I would say something like "irrespective of the type of investment vehicle used"...

"Support" is often used to mean a "medium" of some kind, but the appropriate term when talking about investment is "vehicle".
