Insurance companies usually compensate insurance agents with commissions, which generally result in prohibited transactions when insurance agents are investment advisory trustees who provide investment advice to retired investors in connection with sales. The Department does not believe that the inclusion of the Standards of Impartial Conduct as conditions for transactions involving IRA accounts is inadmissible in light of the opinion of the Fifth Circuit House. Title I and the Code also prohibit fiduciaries from making purchases and selling with plans or IRAs on behalf of their own accounts (main transactions). The provisions also prohibit buying and selling investments with plans and IRAs when fiduciaries act on behalf of their own accounts (main transactions).
To the extent that insurance companies determine that the supervisory requirements of this exemption do not fit their business models well, it is important to note that insurance and annuity products may also continue to be recommended and sold under the existing exemption for insurance transactions, 84-24. Both commentators suggested that the exemption based on Rule 17a-7 of the Investment Companies Act of 1940 would protect plans involved in such transactions from possible abuses. Section 4975 of the code imposes a tax on disqualified individuals participating in a prohibited transaction involving plans and IRAs (except for a trustee acting only as such). Some commentators also stated that the Department should not be allowed to request records of IRA transactions because the Department has no enforcement jurisdiction over IRAs and, in the opinion of the House of the Fifth Circuit, the provision of records would be an unacceptable attempt to usurp enforcement jurisdiction. The Department responds that the exemption as a whole is deregulatory because it provides a broader and more flexible means of providing investment advice to plan trustees and IRAs to carry out certain transactions that would otherwise be prohibited under Title I and the Code.
In the Department's view, the exemption as a whole is deregulatory because it provides a broader and more flexible means whereby trustees who advise investments to plans and IRAs can receive compensation and carry out certain capital transactions that would otherwise be prohibited under Title I and the Code. The Start Printed Page 82800 exemption also allows financial institutions to carry out equity transactions with plans and IRAs in which the financial institution buys or sells certain investments from its own account. The Department confirms that when a transaction under PTE 84-24 involves an IRA, disclosure can be provided to the owner of the IRA. .
