Does South Carolina have any investment restrictions?
Yes, RRGs and association captives must comply with the provisions of SC Code §38-12.

SPFCs generally follow the investment restrictions of their ceding state’s domicile.

All other captives are not subject to any restrictions on allowable investments but we may prohibit or limit an investment that threatens the solvency or liquidity of the company. The department currently prohibits the use of auction rate securities and guaranteed interest contracts.
