    If the foreign life insurance company has an interest in a subsidiary company, the foreign life insurance company can look through to a 50% owned subsidiary. The look-through rule allows the subsidiary's assets to be looked at to decide whether the foreign life insurance company passes the 50% assets test. [subsections 507(3) to (11)]
