What is AFM? Autoriteit Financiële Markten

The Autoriteit Financiële Markten (AFM) is the Financial Supervisory Authority of the Netherlands. It was established in 2002 as part of a reorganization of the Dutch financial regulatory authorities. The AFM is responsible for supervising and regulating the financial markets in the Netherlands, including the securities markets, insurance markets and lending markets.

The AFM’s responsibilities include protecting the interests of investors and consumers, promoting transparency and integrity in financial markets, preventing fraud and market manipulation, and supervising financial companies and their products and services.

The AFM has regulatory and sanctioning powers and works closely with other financial regulatory and supervisory authorities in the Netherlands and abroad. Its main objective is to ensure that the Dutch financial markets operate efficiently, fairly and transparently, and that investors and consumers are protected from any illegal or inappropriate activity.
