Jonathan Katz:

I am an insurance proffesional, i provide variable annuities to my clients in the proper situations and aleady have a full disclosure document, I feel that duplication of one more document is on no value to the industry or the client, NASD rules already contain general suitabilty rules and anyone that would mislead a client should be prosecuted for such action. I believe that the NASD already does a great job of regulation and I see no reason to single out VA over any other mutual fund or any other kind of investment.

Thank you for the chance to respond.
