One of National Underwriter’s sister companies is updating a Web-based service that can help subscribers analyze insurance company securities holdings.

Highline Data, Hoboken, N.J., a unit of Highline Media L.L.C., Erlanger, Ky., (the company that owns the NU Online News Service), has released Insurance Analyst PRO–Schedule D Securities, a product that provides detailed information about insurers’ $3 trillion in bond holdings as well as their investments in preferred stock and common stock.

The database includes information for all U.S. insurance companies that file annual statements with the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, Kansas City, Mo., according to Highline Data.

Highline Data today has released an improved version of the Schedule D Securities product along with the release of the 2006 First Quarter NAIC statutory data in the company’s Insurance Analyst PRO online product suite.

The changes include a reporting view of the netted position values of the securities from the annual statement listings. This view is adjusted with the current quarter’s transactions, resulting in the most current securities holdings positions available in the commercial market, according to Highline Data.

Changes also include a new display of section subtotals and totals for any of the NAIC financial statement parts available, easing the process of comparing the portfolios of peers.

Subscribers can compare annual data or quarterly data.
