17:16A-14. Examination of affairs; expenses; duty to exhibit books, records and accounts
The commissioner may, whenever he deems the same expedient, make or cause to be made, an examination of the assets and liabilities, method of conducting business and all other affairs of every investment company authorized to transact business in this State. For the purpose of the examination the commissioner may authorize and employ such persons to conduct the same or to assist therein as he may deem advisable. The examination may be conducted in any State or country in which the company examined is incorporated or has an office, agent or place of business. The reasonable expenses of such examination shall be fixed and determined by the commissioner, and he shall collect them from the company examined, which shall pay them on presentation of a detailed account of the expenses. If any company, after the examination, shall be adjudged by the Superior Court to be insolvent, the expense of the examination, if unpaid, shall be ordered paid out of the assets of the company. No company shall, either directly or indirectly, pay, by way of gift, credit or otherwise, any other or further sum to the commissioner or to any person in the employ of the department for extra service or for purposes of legislation, or for any other purpose. It shall be the duty of the officers, agents and employees of any such company to exhibit all its books, records and accounts for the purpose of the examination, and otherwise to facilitate it so far as it may be in their power to do, and for that purpose the commissioner, his deputy, assistants and employees may examine, under oath, the officers, agents and employees of any such company relative to its business and affairs.
