comp21388 21-Jan-2010 Complaint
On January 21 the SEC filed a complaint against Assurant, Inc. According to the SEC: "This matter involves the failure of Assurant, a publically traded insurance company, to properly account for millions of dollars that it obtained in the third quarter of 2004 under a so-called 'reinsurance policy'. The reinsurance policy was subject to an undisclosed 'handshake' agreement that effectively negated risk transfer. As a result, under applicable accounting rules, Assurant should have accounted for the policy as a deposit rather than as true reinsurance. By failing to do so, Assurant overstated its reported net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2004, by nearly 10% and in process violated corporate reporting, recordkeeping and internal control provisions of the federal securities laws."
