Tex. Ins. Code Section 942.052
Security Requirements


Except as provided by Subsection (d), to act as an attorney in fact, an individual, firm, or corporation must execute a good and sufficient fidelity bond that obligates the principal and surety to pay a pecuniary loss of money or property, not exceeding the amount of the bond, that is sustained by the exchange through fraud, dishonesty, forgery, theft, embezzlement, wrongful abstraction, or wilful misapplication on the part of the attorney in fact, directly or through connivance with others.


The bond must:


be acceptable to the department;


be payable to the subscribers or the department; and


be in the amount of:


$25,000 for an individual or firm; or


$50,000 for a corporation.


If the conditions of the bond are violated, the insurance supervisory authority of any state in which the attorney in fact is authorized to engage in the business of the exchange may bring an action to enforce the bond on behalf of the subscribers.


Instead of a bond, an attorney in fact may deposit with the appropriate official of the exchange’s state of domicile cash or securities of the kind in which a general casualty company is authorized to invest its funds. The deposit must be made in the same amount, and must be conditioned, approved, and payable in the same manner, as a bond required under this section.
