Abstract: A Bank-Laine function is an entire function $E$ satisfying $E'(z) = \pm 1$ at every zero of $E$. We determine all Bank-Laine functions of form $E = f \circ g$, with $f, g$ entire. Further, we prove that if $h$ is a transcendental entire function of finite order, then there exists a path tending to infinity on which $h$ and all its derivatives tend to infinity, thus establishing for finite order a conjecture of Rubel.
