On 25 November 2009, the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) imposed an administrative fine of € 6,000 on Mutlu Finance. The fine was imposed because Mutlu Finance, in the period of 1 January 2007 to 31 December 2008, provided brokerage services with respect to mortgage loans and life insurance between clients and providers, without having a licence for that purpose. Brokering mortgage loans and life insurance requires a license from the AFM pursuant to Article 2:80 of the Act on Financial Supervision. The fine was mitigated from 96,000 Euros to 6,000 Euros.
Interested parties can submit the AFM's decision to the competent court for review.
