Code of Virginia
Title 38.2. Insurance
Chapter 14. Investments

§ 38.2-1407. Prohibited investments.

A. No domestic insurer shall invest in or loan funds secured by:

1. Issued shares of its own capital stock without the Commission's approval. This approval shall be based on an evaluation that indicates the investment does not adversely affect the insurer or its policyholders. The insurer shall not invest in or own more than 20 percent of its outstanding issued stock, except for the purpose of mutualization;

2. Securities of an insolvent entity;

3. Securities that, by their terms, will subject the insurer to any assessment other than for taxes or for wages; however, the term "assessment" shall not include ordinary contractual payments or the transfer of collateral or margin made under derivative instruments invested in or owned under § 38.2-1428;

4. Investments that, as determined by the Commission, are designed to evade any prohibition of this title; or

5. Any obligation or investment prohibited by § 38.2-1411.2.

B. Notwithstanding the provisions of this chapter, the Commission may order a domestic insurer to limit or withdraw from certain investments, or discontinue certain investment practices, to the extent the Commission finds that such investment or investment practice endangers the solvency of the insurer or is otherwise hazardous to policyholders, creditors or the public in this Commonwealth.
