WASHINGTON - The NASD has set out its agenda and outlined a smattering of projects, including a number related to mutual funds, that are currently in the works. The pronouncement came from Robert Glauber, chairman and chief executive officer of the NASD, speaking at the Investment Company Institute's General Membership Meeting here earlier this month.

Upcoming projects of the NASD include the convergence of regulations for 529 college savings plans; the potential harmonization of rules governing fixed, variable and equity index annuities; the development of a fund breakpoint database; and the development of a point-of-sale disclosure document dubbed Profile Plus for funds and possibly exchange-traded funds and separately managed accounts.
