NASD Firms OK Regulatory Deal

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

Members of the National Association of Securities Dealers Inc. have approved an agreement to combine NASD regulatory operations with those of the New York Stock Exchange.

About 83% of the 5,058 firms that were eligible to vote voted, and 64% of the firms that voted supported the by-law changes needed to allow the combination, according to the NASD, Washington.

The by-law changes still must be approved by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, NASD officials say.

The NASD and the New York Stock Exchange have promised that one seat on a new 23-seat self-regulatory organization board will go to “independent dealer/insurance affiliated firms.”

The American Council of Life Insurers, Washington, endorsed the deal.
