In a petition for review of an SEC rule stating that fixed indexed annuities are not "annuity contracts" within the meaning of the Securities Act (Act), the petition is granted in part where the SEC failed to properly consider the effect of the rule upon efficiency, competition, and capital formation; but denied in part, where the SEC's interpretation of "annuity contract" in the Act was reasonable.
