SEC. 83-7-29. Investment of amounts allocated to separate accounts.
(1) Except as may be provided with respect to reserves for guaranteed benefits and funds referred to in subsection (2) of this section:
(a) amounts allocated to any separate account and accumulations thereon may be invested and reinvested without regard to any requirements or limitations prescribed by the laws of this state governing the investments of life insurance companies; and
(b) the investments in such separate account or accounts shall not be taken into account in applying the investment limitations otherwise applicable to the investments of the company.
(2) Except the approval of the commissioner of insurance and under such conditions as to investments and other matters as he may prescribe, which shall recognize the guaranteed nature of the benefits provided, reserves for:
(a) benefits guaranteed, as to dollar amount and duration; and
(b) funds guaranteed as to principal amount or stated rate of interest shall not be maintained in a separate account.
(3) No sale, exchange or other transfer of assets may be made by a company between any of its separate accounts or between any other investment account and one (1) or more of its separate accounts unless, in case of a transfer into a separate account, such transfer is made solely to establish the account or to support the operation of the contracts with respect to the separate account to which the transfer is made, and unless such transfer, whether into or from a separate account is made:
(a) by a transfer of cash; or
(b) by a transfer of securities having a readily determinable market value, provided that such transfer of securities is approved by the commissioner of insurance. The commissioner of insurance may approve other transfers among such accounts if, in his opinion, such transfers would not be inequitable.
