Regulation by the AFM
The AFM keeps a close watch on whether financial enterprises provide good quality information. The AFM can take action if it discovers that a firm is not keeping to the rules in its publicity or advertising. Suchaction takes place afterwards. The AFM does not assess publicity or advertisements before they appear on the radio or television or are published in a newspaper.
