The Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) has published the amended information brochures for shareholders and issuers, directors and supervisory directors on its website.
As a result of the implementation of a number of sections of the Transparency Directive in Chapter 5.3 of the Act on Financial Supervision ("Wft") as of 1 January 2009, an amendment of the brochures was necessary. AFM policy concerning securities lending and repurchase agreements, which was published previously, was also included.
The English versions of the brochures will soon be published as well.
You can access the Dutch versions of the brochures by means of the links to the right of this page.
