Caribbean Netherlands: Announcement Market Monitor 2021

The Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) published the Market Monitor this week. The Market Monitor is a digital questionnaire that is sent every year to enterprises subject to supervision by the AFM.

Insight into the markets

The AFM and De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) use the information provided to improve its understanding of the market so that they can focus its supervision on risks and trends in the markets or developments at individual institutions in the Caribbean Netherlands. This year’s issue includes further questions on compliance with the Anti Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing Act (WwftBES).

The Market Monitor is mandatory

Completing the Market Monitor is mandatory for parties with an AFM license. Parties that have not carried out any activities in the past year must also complete the Market Monitor. Institutions receive an email with login details for a digital environment in which the questionnaire is included. The questionnaire can only be completed digitally.


This year, the AFM will be carrying out targeted random checks together with DNB to check the correctness and completeness of the completed questionnaires. Complete the questionnaire with great care.


Further information on the Market Monitor is provided on the website. Any questions may be sent by email to

The AFM is committed to promoting fair and transparent financial markets.

As an independent market conduct authority, we contribute to a sustainable financial system and prosperity in the Netherlands.
