Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 200 / Wednesday, October 17, 2007 / Notices greater involvement in insurance regulation? What regulatory structure would best achieve these goals/ interests? 2.2.3 Should the States continue to have a role (or the sole role) in insurance regulation? Insurance regulation is already somewhat bifurcated between retail and wholesale companies (e.g., surplus lines carriers). Does the current structure work? How could that structure be improved? 2.2.4 States have taken an active role in some aspects of the insurance marketplace (e.g., workers’ compensation and residual markets for hard to place risks) for various policy reasons. Are these policy reasons still valid? Are these necessarily met through State (as opposed to federal) regulation? 2.3 Securities and Futures sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES 2.3.1 Is there a continued rationale for distinguishing between securities and futures products and their respective intermediaries? 2.3.2 Is there a continued rationale for having separate regulators for these types of financial products and institutions? 2.3.3 What type of regulation would be optimal for firms that provide financial services related to securities and futures products? Should this regulation be driven by the need to protect customers or by the broader issues of market integrity and financial system stability? 2.3.4 What is the optimal role for the states in securities and futures regulation? 2.3.5 What are the key consumer/ investor protection elements associated with products offered by securities and futures firms? Should there be a regulatory distinction among retail, institutional, wholesale, commercial, and hedging customers? 2.3.6 Would it be useful to apply some of the principles of the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000 to the securities regulatory regime? Is a tiered system of regulation appropriate? Is it appropriate to make distinctions based on the relative sophistication of the market participants and/or the integrity of the market?
