Safety Of Assets

Definition of "Safety of assets"

Quality of investments of insurance companies. State insurance regulators establish rules for company investments. Authorized investments vary, depending on whether a company is a life insurer or property casualty company and, in some instances, on whether it is a mutual or stock company. Investments must meet standards for asset type, credit quality, and diversification. Generally, insurance company assets are limited to government securities, bonds, stocks, mortgages, and certain real estate holdings.
