Financial Law

Lawyer Financial Law

The law & regulations surrounding the financial sector are not only vast in compass but also complicated and in continual development. The Authority of Financial Markets (AFM) encourages those offering financial services to behave in an honest and open manner in all dealings with clients and demands a high level of execution. Experience tells us that financial institutions such as banks, insurers, asset managers but also intermediaries are often inclined to push these boundaries and overstep the mark. For a financial institution or an intermediary, this can result in liability.
