These guidelines do not apply to investments in a pool of life insurance policies, as those offerings are covered by existing registration guidelines. Applications not conforming to the standards contained herein shall be looked upon with disfavor. However, the director shall review such documents based on full disclosure and may allow waivers or exceptions from certain standards under these guidelines.
