The AFM identified a series of developments on the market for structured products. The Dutch market for structured products has undergone a rapid growth in recent years, both in terms of volume as in terms of product range.
The market has become a mass market. The products draw attention because of their names and the manner in which they are marketed. In addition, the AFM noted in its analysis of these products for its everyday supervisory activities that many of them are difficult to understand. These developments constituted grounds for this exploratory analysis.

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.
