(a) The Commissioner may require a trust company holding a certificate of
authority under this Act to pledge to the Commissioner securities or a surety
bond which shall run to the Commissioner in an amount, not to exceed $2,000,000, that the Commissioner deems appropriate for costs associated with
the receivership of the trust company. In the event of a receivership of a
trust company, the Commissioner may, without regard to any priorities,
preferences, or adverse claims, reduce the pledged securities or the surety
bond to cash and, as soon as practicable, utilize the cash to cover costs
associated with the receivership.
(b) If the trust company chooses to pledge securities to satisfy the
provisions of this Section, the securities shall be held at a depository
institution or a Federal Reserve Bank approved by the Commissioner. The
Commissioner may specify the types of securities that may be pledged in
accordance with this Section. Any fees associated with holding such securities
shall be the responsibility of the trust company.
(c) If the trust company chooses to purchase a surety bond to satisfy the
provisions of this Section, the bond shall be issued by a bonding company,
approved by the Commissioner, that is authorized to do business in this State
and that has a rating in one of the 3 highest grades as determined by a
national rating service. The bond shall be in a form approved by the
Commissioner. The trust company may not obtain a surety bond from any entity
in which the trust company has a financial interest.
