(Cite as: 8 V.S.A. § 6049f)
  • § 6049f. Permitted reinsurance

    (a) An affiliated reinsurance company shall only reinsure the risks of a ceding insurer, pursuant to a reinsurance contract. An affiliated reinsurance company shall not issue a contract of insurance or a contract for assumption of risk or indemnification of loss other than such reinsurance contract.

    (b) The reinsurance contract shall contain all provisions reasonably required or approved by the Commissioner, which requirements shall take into account the laws applicable to the ceding insurer regarding the ceding insurer's taking credit for the reinsurance provided under such reinsurance contract.

    (c) An affiliated reinsurance company may cede risks assumed through a reinsurance contract to one or more reinsurers through the purchase of reinsurance, subject to the prior approval of the Commissioner. Except as otherwise provided in this section, the provisions of chapter 101, subchapter 10 of this title, reinsurance of risks, shall apply in full to an affiliated reinsurance company.

    (d) Unless otherwise approved in advance by the Commissioner, a reinsurance contract shall not contain any provision for payment by the affiliated reinsurance company in discharge of its obligations under the reinsurance contract to any person other than the ceding insurer or any receiver of the ceding insurer.

    (e) An affiliated reinsurance company shall notify the Commissioner immediately of any action by a ceding insurer or any other person to foreclose on or otherwise take possession of collateral provided by the affiliated reinsurance company to secure any obligation of the affiliated reinsurance company.
