(1) The policies being followed by the insurer in procuring reinsurance; and

(2) The general pricing policies being utilized by the insurer, and the effect of those pricing policies upon the insurer's overall operations; and

(3) The investment policies being utilized by the insurer, and the effect of these policies upon the insurer's overall operations.

b. In addition to the duties prescribed by this act or otherwise prescribed by law, the division established pursuant to section 2 of this act shall, from time to time, examine the overall operation of the insurance market, with respect to commercial lines insurance and personal lines insurance.
