In our daily lives, we are all active on the financial markets. We have a mortgage, a payment account, various insurances, a pension and possibly investments in shares on the stock exchange. The financial crisis of 2007 has shown the importance of the functioning of the financial markets for our economy. The crisis eroded public confidence in the financial sector. This explains the increased public’s and government’s attention to the supervision of the financial sector.
Usually, the government’s attention results in regulation, which is translated into legislation and supervision. For the financial sector, this relates in particular to the Financial Supervision Act (FSA).
This act is relatively unknown and therefore unloved by most lawyers and law students. This is however completely unjustified. Dutch law cannot be more extensive, complex, dynamic and therefore more challenging than the FSA. The purpose of this book is to make the FSA more accessible to interested parties. It contains clear diagrams, topic-orientated explanations and practical examples to give a quick and comprehensive insight into the FSA.
