  4.  The board of directors of any domestic insurance company which acquires or invests in, directly or indirectly, medium or lower quality obligations of any institution shall adopt a written plan for the making of such investments.  The plan, in addition to guidelines with respect to the quality of the obligations invested in, shall contain diversification standards including, but not limited to, standards for issuer, industry, duration, liquidity and geographic location.

  5.  No investments in excess of the limitations provided by this act shall be recognized as an asset of the insurer pursuant to section 379.080.
