SEC Ignores Congressional, State, and Industry Opposition to Indexed Annuity Proposal
Date:12/12/2008

WASHINGTON, Dec. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The Coalition for Indexed Products issued a statement expressing "deep disappointment" in the Security and Exchange Commission's decision to pursue Proposed Rule 151A, which would require all indexed annuities to be registered as securities. The SEC announced yesterday that the proposal would be an agenda item on the Commission's December 17 meeting.

A letter signed by 19 members of Congress -- including several on the House Financial Services Committee -- was recently sent to SEC Commissioners expressing opposition to the proposed rule, according to the Coalition. It noted that Proposed Rule 151A would "reduce product availability and consumer choice" and "effectively [place] the cost of the regulation squarely on the shoulders of consumers."

Other high profile opponents include the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, the National Conference of Insurance Legislators, and a number of Congressional members who wrote separate letters to the SEC.

"The SEC's action appears to ignore the thousands of comments filed against this misguided proposal," said Jim Poolman, spokesperson for the Coalition and former North Dakota Insurance Commissioner.

"It is concerning that the SEC continues to see this issue as a priority in the middle of arguably the most severe financial crisis since World War II," Mr. Poolman added. "The Commission seems content to eliminate millions in market capital from the insurance industry, based on highly questionable suppositions."
