The Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) hereby announces that, on 28 July 2010, it imposed an order for incremental penalty payments on: VerzekerDesk B.V. (VerzekerDesk), with its registered office in Leeuwarden, maintaining offices at 47559 Kranenburg (Germany), Hauptstrasse 123.
The order for incremental penalty payments was imposed because VerzekerDesk has failed to comply with the requests for information from the supervisors of the AFM. VerzekerDesk was requested to provide information because the suspicion exists that VerzekerDesk failed to notify the AFM in writing of the appointment of a policymaker and that an unassessed policymaker is active at VerzekerDesk.
VerzekerDesk did not supply the requested information by the deadline and is therefore required to make incremental penalty payments. The requested information still needs to be provided to the AFM.
If you have any questions or comments you can contact the Financial Markets Information Line on: 0900-5400 540 (5 eurocents per minute).
