IV. Securities and Exchange Commission

  • A. I and II
  • B. I and III
  • C. I and IV
  • D. III and IV

Correct Answer: D


D. Tricky, tricky. The Series 7 examiners want to make sure you know that a variable annuity is derived from two separate products: an insurance contract and securities held in a separate account. Consequently, a variable annuity must be registered with the State Insurance Commission (for the insurance contract) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (for the securities held in the separate account).
