Premium Finance Companies

The permissible activities for these companies are limited to advancing money directly or indirectly to an insurer or producer at the request of an insured pursuant to the terms of a premium finance agreement. Under the Industrial Loan Law, premium finance agencies are required to form a California corporation or amend the articles of an existing California Corporation for the specific purpose of engaging in the business of financing insurance premiums.
