Oregon Statutes - Chapter 733 - Accounting and Investments - Section 733.165 - Valuation of securities.

(1) Securities held by an insurer, other than bonds or other evidences of debt to which ORS 733.160 applies, must be valued in the discretion of the Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services at their market value, at their appraised value or at prices determined by the director as representing their fair market value.

(2) Preferred or guaranteed stocks or shares while paying full dividends may be carried at a fixed value instead of market value, at the discretion of the director and in accordance with any method of valuation approved by the director.

(3) Stock of a subsidiary corporation of an insurer must not be valued at an amount in excess of the net value thereof as based upon the assets only of the subsidiary that would be eligible under ORS 733.510 to 733.780 for investment of the funds of the insurer directly.

(4) The director may determine the method of calculating values as provided in this section, but the method or valuation may not be inconsistent with any applicable method or valuation used by insurers in general or any such method of valuation then currently formulated or approved by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners or its successor organization.
