Gerben Everts, member of the Executive Board at the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets, opens the Amsterdam exchange. With the sounding of the gong AFM highlights their 2016-2018 agenda which will be published later this month.

His main areas of responsibility are: supervision on securities markets, asset managers and accountant organizations, financial infrastructure, corporate governance, financial reporting and auditing. 

The reason for his visit to Beursplein 5 is the AFM agenda 2016-2018. Due to social and technological developments, financial markets are continuously evolving. With the new agenda, the AFM wants to react timely on the most important developments in the financial markets with, for example, data-driven supervision. By doing so, the AFM aims to remain a pioneering supervisor both in and outside the Netherlands.
