1.

Subject to the limitations of NRS 682A.512, 682A.514 and 682A.516, an insurer may acquire investments, or engage in investment practices denominated in foreign currencies, whether or not they are foreign investments acquired as described in NRS 682A.550, or additional foreign currency exposure as a result of the termination or expiration of a hedging transaction with respect to investments denominated in a foreign currency if:

(a)

The aggregate amount of investments held by the insurer in accordance with this section denominated in foreign currencies does not exceed 15 percent of its admitted assets; and

(b)

The aggregate amount of investments held by the insurer in accordance with this section denominated in the foreign currency of a single foreign jurisdiction does not exceed 10 percent of its admitted assets as to a foreign jurisdiction that has a sovereign debt rating of SVO 1 or 5 percent of its admitted assets as to any other foreign jurisdiction.

2.

An investment must not be considered denominated in a foreign currency if the acquiring insurer enters into one or more contracts in transactions allowed under NRS 682A.560 to 682A.568, inclusive, and the business entity counterparty agrees, in accordance with the contract or contracts, to exchange all payments made on the foreign currency denominated investment for United States currency at a rate which effectively insulates the investment cash flows against future changes in currency exchange rates during the period the contract or contracts are in effect.
