ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the National Association of Securities Dealers' (NASD) plan to change its name to the Securities Industry Regulatory Authority (SIRA) following its merger with the New York Stock Exchange's regulatory authority. After it was determined that the acronym SIRA could be offensive to Muslims, NASD announced that the new entity would be renamed the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FIRA). The Financial Planning Association president Nicholas A. Nicolette, however, feels that this name is misleading to consumers.
