Annuity regulation, Pt. 2: More from NAFA's Kim O'Brien on what's next
By Paul Wilson
In the second part of this interview, conducted at NAFA's recent IMO Summit in Aspen, Co. (see part one here), NAFA President and CEO Kim O'Brien continues her discussion about the future of annuity regulation, the important issues NAFA is currently tracking, and what it all means to those who work in the insurance industry.
She weighs in on the SEC's request to create a uniform fiduciary standard for broker/dealers; the future of fixed indexed annuities and qualified longevity annuity contracts (QLACs); Senator Orin Hatch's Secure Annuities for Employee (SAFE) Retirement Act of 2013; and the role annuities could play in solving America's underfunded pension crisis.
Look for more video interviews soon, including Kim O'Brien's thoughts on the court's recent reversal in the Glenn Neasham case, and a conversation with indexed products guru, Sheryl Moore.
Will the government take over the life insurance industry?
