Important obligations for companies

Are you going to advise or mediate in a financial product and do you need a permit? Do you see an error? Which laws and regulations apply? What is the AFM's vision? Should you place a warning with a financial advertisement? Or do you get a new employee who has to take the oath or promise? Reporting and requesting obligations apply.

European rules apply to the financial market. The AFM supervises the rules and helps to comply with these rules.


Many financial services, such as giving advice about disability insurance or consumer credit, or acting as an intermediary in relation to accrued benefit products, require you to have a licence from the AFM if you wish to provide them. Financial companies can and/or must make various types of notifications.
