As used in this chapter, “premium financing” means the activities of a company engaging in the business of advancing money directly or indirectly to an insurer or producer at the request of an insured pursuant to the terms of a premium finance agreement, wherein the insured has assigned the unearned premiums, accrued dividends or loss payments as security for such advancement in payment of premiums on insurance contracts only, and acquiring premium finance agreements, and does not include the financing of insurance contract premiums purchased in connection with the financing of goods and services. The amount of such advancement in payment of premiums must bear a reasonable relationship to the premium or premiums being financed.
