§601.19. Pledging of assets restricted

            A. No insurance company domiciled in this state shall pledge its assets solely to secure a personal loan, other than a policy loan based on the contractual terms of a policy of insurance issued by the company, if the loan is solely for the personal benefit of any officer, director, or employee. Nothing herein shall be construed to limit the right of an insurance company to pledge any or all of its assets to secure loans in the ordinary course of its business and for the company's business purposes and to obtain, as further security therefor, the guarantee, personal or otherwise, of any officer, director, or employee. The commissioner may bring an action to recover and conserve any asset pledged in violation of this Section.

            B. Any company or any officer, director, or employee violating the provisions of this Section may be fined not more than ten thousand dollars for each violation, and the officer, director, or employee may be removed from such office, position, capacity, or relationship with the company.
