The public databases contain licences that have been granted by De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) or by the Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM). Financial undertakings must obtain a licence from DNB or AFM in order to be permitted to pursue their business in the Netherlands.
The public databases further contain the compulsory notifications. According to the law financial undertakings and shareholders have to notify these compulsory notifications to AFM. These notifications can only be found in the public databases on the AFM-website (www.afm.nl).
