NAIC collateral proposal proceeds towards a vote

The NAIC's Reinsurance Task Force is proceeding towards an anticipated final vote in early 2007 on a proposal to change the indirect regulation of non-admitted reinsurers, which currently allows U.S. reinsureds to take statutory credit on their balance sheet for reinsurance only if such reinsurance obligations are 100% collateralized. The Task Force's web page contains the current red-lined version of the U.S. Reinsurance Collateral White Paper and Rating Proposal: an alternative procedure to grant credit for ceded reinsurance.
