Yankee Bond Rule
Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation
DAR File No.: 41064
Filed: 12/12/2016 03:51:30 PM
NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
Subsection 31A-18-105(13) permits the commissioner to specify an investment besides those listed in this section that insurers can invest in. The rule allows them to invest in Yankee Bonds.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
The department has not received any written comments regarding this rule in the past five years.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
Due to the fact that some insurers are investing in Yankee Bonds, this rule is necessary to provide guidelines that make sure the quality of the bond is high and does not take up a major share of the portfolio. Without the rule, insurers would not be able to invest in Yankee Bonds at all. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
