Title 8 : Banking and Insurance

Chapter 141 : CAPTIVE INSURANCE COMPANIES

Subchapter 004 : SPECIAL PURPOSE FINANCIAL INSURANCE COMPANIES

(Cite as: 8 V.S.A. § 6048h)
  • § 6048h. Securities

    (a) A special purpose financial insurance company may:

    (1) subject to the prior approval of the Commissioner, account for the proceeds of a surplus note issued by the special purpose financial insurance company as surplus; and

    (2) submit for prior approval of the Commissioner periodic written requests for authorization to make payments of interest on and repayments of principal of surplus notes and other debt obligations issued by the special purpose financial insurance company, provided that the Commissioner shall not approve such payment if the Commissioner determines that such payment would jeopardize the ability of the special purpose financial insurance company or any other person to fulfill his or her respective obligations pursuant to the special purpose financial insurance company securitization agreements, the reinsurance contract, or any related transaction. In lieu of approval of periodic written requests for authorization to make payments of interest on and repayments of principal of surplus notes and other debt obligations issued by the special purpose financial insurance company, the Commissioner may approve a formula or plan, which shall be included in the special purpose financial insurance company's plan of operation as amended from time to time, for payment of interest, principal, or both with respect to such surplus notes and debt obligations.

    (b) In addition to the provisions of section 6005 of this chapter, no dividend or distribution may be declared or paid by a special purpose financial insurance company if such dividend or distribution would jeopardize the ability of the special purpose financial insurance company or any other person to fulfill the company's or other person's respective obligations pursuant to the special purpose financial insurance company securitization agreements, the reinsurance contract, or any related transaction.

    (c) A special purpose financial insurance company security shall not be subject to regulation as an insurance or reinsurance contract. An investor in such a security or a holder of such a security shall not be considered to be transacting the business of insurance in this State solely by reason of having an interest in the security. The underwriter's placement or selling agents and their partners, commissioners, officers, members, managers, employees, agents, representatives, and advisors involved in an insurance securitization by a special purpose financial insurance company shall not be considered to be insurance producers or brokers or to be conducting business as an insurance or reinsurance company or as an insurance agency, brokerage, intermediary, advisory, or consulting business solely by virtue of their underwriting activities in connection with such securitization. (Added 2007, No. 49, § 17; amended 2013, No. 29, § 59, eff. May 13, 2013.)
