What has happened prior to the introduction of the ban on inducements?
The AFM has been consulting with the market regarding the commissions for some time. Transparency and appropriate incentivisation are core values in the AFM’s theme of ’Vermogensopbouw’. These discussions have led to an agreement between the AFM and six financial market participants that was published on 14 February 2013. At the same time, the Minister of Finance announced that a legal ban on inducements would be introduced. The six financial market participants that signed the agreement are also subject to the statutory ban.
