  • § 3857. Licensing

    (a) No company shall deliver or issue for delivery within this State variable contracts unless it is licensed or organized to do a life insurance or annuity business in this State, and the Commissioner is satisfied that its condition or method of operation in connection with the issuance of such contracts will not render its operation hazardous to the public or its policyholders in this state. In this connection, the Commissioner shall consider among other things:

    (1) the history and financial condition of the company;

    (2) the character, responsibility and fitness of the officers and directors of the company; and

    (3) the law and regulation under which the company is authorized in the state of domicile to issue variable contracts.

    (b) If the company is a subsidiary of an admitted life insurer, or affiliated with such insurer through common management or ownership, it may be deemed by the Commissioner to have met the provisions of this section if either it or the parent or the affiliated insurer meets the requirements hereof.
