Information for consumers
Part of the AFM site is designed for consumers. This part is visited more than a million times a year.
Consumers can find here important information on how to reduce unnecessary financial risks, such as information on fraud or illegal providers of financial services.
A search function can be used to check whether providers of financial services have a licence of the AFM or not. Furthermore, practical tips, frequently asked questions, tools to test your knowledge, information on the financial information leaflet, and other useful background information on financial products can be found here.
