B vs. E

Both B and E conveys the same intended meaning, the error is in the not-so-parallel construct of the prior.

(B) each financial institution faces a similar crisis, the investment houses holding a significant number of subprime mortgage loans and the insurance companies that underwrite credit swaps obviously dictate
--> Incorrect, Parallel error "The X verb+ing, and the Y that"

(E) all financial institutions face similar crises, those investment houses that have a significant holding in subprime mortgage loans and those insurance companies that underwrite credit swaps obviously dictate
--> Correct, rectifies parallel error "Those X that, and those Y that"

+1 for E

Split 1:
S-V agreement
Insurance companies - Plural subject should have 'Dictate'- Plural verb

Eliminate A, C, D

Split 2:
Between B and E
The investment houses is wrong diction. Those investment houses is right diction. Hence eliminate B

Could you farther explain as to why B is wrong?
Doesn't E change the meaning a bit?
As per the question- hold a significant number of subprime mortgage loans
As per E - have a significant holding in subprime mortgage loans
