Banking regulations – In the Netherlands there are two supervision authorities The Dutch National Bank, De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) and the Authority for the Financial Markets, Autoriteit Financiële Markten (AFM). Prudential supervision addresses the question of whether participants in the financial markets can rely on their contracting parties being able to meet their financial obligations. The Dutch National Bank is responsible for prudential supervision. The supervision of market conduct focuses on the question of whether the participants in the financial markets are handled properly and whether they have accurate information. This supervision is the responsibility of AFM.
