Subsidiaries or divisions.
A financial institution shall not
qualify for registration as a registered firm under Section 499.1 of

acts as the registered firm or (2) it is otherwise permitted by law to sell
insurance directly through the financial institution, and it establishes a
separate division within the financial institution to conduct the business of
the registered firm. The subsidiary or division acting as a registered firm
