The AFM imposes an order for incremental penalty payments on Scan Financieringen B.V.

On 3 July 2009, Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) imposed an order for incremental penalty payments on: Scan Financieringen B.V., PO Box 691 (7550 AR) in Hengelo (correspondence address).

The order for incremental penalty payments was imposed because Scan Financieringen B.V. fails to comply with the repeated requests from the AFM to cease and refrain from providing brokerage services, as referred to in Article 2:80 of the Wft, and to confirm to the AFM that the brokerage services have been ceased. The AFM has requested Scan Financieringen B.V. to cease and refrain from providing brokerage services, because Scan Financieringen B.V. does not possess the AFM licence required for that purpose. Scan Financieringen B.V. failed to comply with abovementioned order of the AFM and is therefore required to make incremental penalty payments.
