Supervision, policy and partnerships of the AFM

We supervise the financial markets: savings, investments, insurance, loans, pensions, capital markets, asset management and audit firms and reporting. It is important that the public, business and government have confidence in the financial markets. And that the markets operate in a clear and fair manner.

The AFM is an independent administrative body with statutory duties and powers. The Minister of Finance appoints the board members of the AFM. The minister also approves the budget and amendments to the Articles of Association of the AFM.
