The National Association of Securities Dealers will offer a session aimed at insurers at its 2006 NASD Spring Securities Conference in Westin, Fla.

The 3-day conference is set to start May 17.

The advertising regulation review session will discuss advertising rules governing annuities and 529 college savings plans.

Another session, on “Insurance Products: Key Regulatory Considerations,” will talk about application of securities rules to insurance products.

“Attend this session to hear considerations your firm should take into account when dealing in annuities, including variable and equity-indexed annuities, and variable life products, all of which have grown in popularity in recent years,” the NASD says in the program brochure. “During the discussion, panelists will guide you through the issues concerning supervision, suitability and sales practices.”
