Rules used by state regulators to value securities on the books of insurance companies. Bonds with acceptable credit quality are carried at amortized value, which is the face value plus or minus the amount of any purchase discount or premium, as amortized over the life of the bond. Preferred stock is valued at cost and common stock investments at year-end market price. Valuations for impaired securities such as bonds in default are determined by the Committee on Valuation of Securities of the national association of insurance commissioners (NAIC).
