Supervision in the Caribbean Netherlands
The Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) and De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB – the Dutch Central Bank) are jointly supervising financial institutions in the Caribbean Netherlands; the islands Bonaire, Statia, and Saba.
Institutions and persons who work with these financial products must be experts in their field, trustworthy, and honest. They also have a duty of care, which means that they must act in the interests of their clients. They must therefore provide all the information to the client that is necessary to enable the client to make a good choice. The information must be accurate, clear, understandable and not misleading.
