RenaissanceRe, like many insurance industry companies, has been subpoenaed in recent months by state and federal regulators investigating whether companies have used finite risk products to manipulate their results. The SEC has been conducting an ongoing investigation into the restatement of RenaissanceRe’s 2001-2003 financial statements. On July 25, 2005, RenaissanceRe reported that the SEC served RenaissanceRe’s Chief Executive Officer, James N. Stanard, with a Wells Notice, indicating that SEC officials plan to recommend that charges be brought against Mr. Stanard for federal securities law violations. On September 9, 2005, Morgan Stanley downgraded RenaissanceRe.
