Oregon Division of Financial Regulation
The Insurance Division and Division of Finance and Corporate Securities have been merged into one division. The new division, named the Division of Financial Regulation, became effective on Jan. 1, 2016.
The Division of Financial Regulation will protect consumers and regulate insurance, depository institutions, trust companies, securities, and consumer financial products and services. Insurance Commissioner Laura Cali will be the administrator of the new division. The Division of Financial Regulation will continue to provide all the services to consumers and businesses previously provided by the two divisions.
Laura Cali became Oregon insurance commissioner on July 15, 2013. The division hired Cali in mid-2011 as a casualty actuary specializing in workers’ compensation and medical malpractice. She previously worked as a consulting actuary for Towers Watson in San Francisco, overseeing projects for self-insured companies, public entities, and insurers. She started her career at Liberty Mutual’s home office in Boston, building rating models for workers’ compensation and general liability lines of business.
While her area of expertise is in property and casualty insurance, Cali became heavily involved in health insurance issues in 2012 as chief actuary and manager of the division’s Product Regulation section. In that position and as commissioner, she has led the division’s efforts to implement the Affordable Care Act.
