  376.303.  Lending and repurchase, permitted when. — An insurer may enter into securities lending, repurchase, reverse repurchase, and dollar-roll transactions with business entities subject to the following requirements:

  (1)  The insurer's board of directors shall adopt a written plan that is consistent with the requirements of the written plan under subdivision (1) of subsection 2 of section 376.293 that specifies guidelines and objectives to be followed, such as:

  (a)  A description of how cash received will be invested or used for general corporate purposes of the insurer;

  (b)  Operational procedures to manage interest rate risk, counterparty default risk, the conditions under which proceeds from reverse repurchase transactions may be used in the ordinary course of business, and use of acceptable collateral in a manner that reflects the liquidity needs of the transaction; and

  (c)  The extent to which the insurer may engage in these transactions;

  (2)  The insurer shall enter into a written agreement for all transactions authorized in this section other than dollar-roll transactions.  The written agreement shall require that each transaction terminate no more than one year from its inception or upon the earlier demand of the insurer.  The agreement shall be with the business entity counterparty and the agreement may be with an agent acting on behalf of the insurer if the agent is a qualified business entity and if the agreement:

  (a)  Requires the agent to enter into separate agreements with each counterparty that are consistent with the requirements of this section; and

  (b)  Prohibits securities lending transactions under the agreement with the agent or its affiliates;

  (3)  Cash received in a transaction under this section shall be invested in accordance with this chapter and in a manner that recognizes the liquidity needs of the transaction or used by the insurer for its general corporate purpose.  So long as the transaction remains outstanding, the insurer, its agent, or custodian shall maintain as to acceptable collateral received in a transaction under this section either physically or through the book entry systems of the Federal Reserve, Depository Trust Company, Participants Trust Company, or other securities depositories approved by the director:

  (a)  Possession of the acceptable collateral;

  (b)  A perfected security interest in the acceptable collateral; or

  (c)  In the case of a jurisdiction outside of the United States, title to or rights of a secured creditor to the acceptable collateral;

  (4)  The limitations of sections 376.297 and 376.304 shall not apply to the business entity counterparty exposure created by transactions under this section.  For purposes of calculations made to determine compliance with this subsection, no effect will be given to the insurer's future obligation to resell securities in the case of a repurchase transaction or to repurchase securities in the case of a reverse repurchase transaction.  An insurer shall not enter into a transaction under this section if as a result of and after giving effect to the transaction:

  (a)  The aggregate amount of securities then loaned, sold to, or purchased from any one business entity counterparty under this section would exceed five percent of its admitted assets.  In calculating the amount sold to or repurchased from a business entity counterparty under repurchase or reverse repurchase transactions, effect may be given to netting provisions under a master written agreement; or

  (b)  The aggregate amount of all securities then loaned, sold to, or purchased from all business entities under this section would exceed forty percent of its admitted assets;

  (5)  In a dollar-roll transaction, the insurer shall receive cash in an amount at least equal to the market value of the securities transferred by the insurer in the transaction as of the transaction date.
