Iran Divestment Program

The Department of Insurance recognizes that businesses supporting Iran's nuclear, military and energy sectors are exposed to potentially volatile reductions in the value of their stock. Because of the asymmetric risk associated with investments in these businesses, the Commissioner encourages all insurers to refrain from investing in multinational corporations with significant connections to these sectors of Iran.

Accordingly, in an effort to encourage insurers to divest from these risky investments, the Commissioner independently reviews and publicizes the names of insurers with investments in Iran-related businesses.  The Commissioner also maintains a public list of businesses directly engaged in the Iranian nuclear, military or energy sectors of Iran.

The Department may in the future revise the list by adding companies found to be doing business with the Iranian oil and natural gas, nuclear, and military sectors; removing companies that cease doing business with those sectors; or making changes based on other risk-related considerations.
