(1) Each bond or other evidence of debt having a fixed term and rate of interest may be valued as follows, if amply secured and not in default as to principal or interest:

(a) If purchased at par, at the par value.

(b) If purchased above or below par, according to an accepted method of valuation approved by the Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services.

(2) For the purpose of subsection (1) of this section, the purchase price shall not be a higher amount than the actual market value at the time of purchase, plus actual brokerage, transfer, postage or express charges paid in the acquisition of such bond or other evidence of debt.

(3) For purposes of subsections (1) and (2) of this section, the director may determine the method of calculating values. The method or valuation may not be inconsistent with any applicable method or valuation used by insurers in general or any such method or valuation then currently formulated or approved by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners or its successor organization.

(4) Real property shall be valued as follows:

(a) Real property acquired pursuant to a mortgage loan or contract of sale shall be valued at an amount not greater than the unpaid principal of the defaulted loan or contract at the date of such acquisition, together with any taxes and expenses paid or incurred in connection with such acquisition, and the cost of improvements thereafter made by the insurer and any amounts thereafter paid by the insurer on assessments levied for improvements in connection with the property.

(b) Other real property held by an insurer shall be valued at an amount not in excess of the cost of the acquired property and the cost of improvements thereafter made by the insurer, less a reasonable allowance for depreciation.

(5) Purchase money mortgages on real property referred to in subsection (4)(a) of this section shall be valued in an amount not exceeding the acquisition cost of the real property covered thereby or 90 percent of the fair value of such real property, whichever is less.

(6) Other assets, other than securities, shall be valued at cost of acquisition less any repaid portion thereof, unless the director determines that another value is proper. [1967 c.359 §223; 1971 c.231 §19; 1993 c.447 §16; 2001 c.318 §11]
