(a) The net retained liability of a title insurance company under a single title insurance risk assumed in this state may not exceed 50 percent of the net amount remaining after deducting from the sum of its capital, surplus, unearned premium reserve, and voluntary reserves, the value, if any, assigned in the summation to its title plants, as shown in its most recent report on file with the director. The same limitation applies to any secondary risk assumed by means of reinsurance or to a policy of excess co-insurance. Upon application by a title insurance company and the showing of good cause, the director may waive the limitation in connection with the assumption of a particular risk.
(b) Nothing in this section is intended to limit the amount of a single insurance risk, as defined in AS 21.66.480 , that may be written or assumed by a title insurance company, if (1) it cedes to one or more other title insurance companies, on or before the effective date of the writing or assumption, the portion, or portions, of the risk sufficient to bring its net retained liability within the limits provided in this section; and (2) each cession of risk is also within the limits of this section as applied to the sum of the capital, surplus, unearned premium reserve, and voluntary reserves, less the value, if any, assigned in the summation to the title plants of the assuming and reinsuring title insurance company, as shown by its most recent report on file with the director or commissioner of insurance in the state of its domicile.Section: Previous 21.66.150 21.66.160 21.66.170 21.66.180 21.66.190 21.66.200 21.66.210 21.66.220 21.66.230 21.66.240 21.66.250 21.66.260 21.66.270 21.66.280 21.66.290 Next
