The Second Chamber of the Dutch Parliament adopted the Financial Markets Amendment Bill 2010 on 2 December 2010.

At a late stage in the debate, the Minister of Finance submitted an amendment to the Bill which raised the threshold for exemption from the licence requirements for investment objects and participation rights in investment institutions from EUR 50,000 to EUR 100,000. The existing threshold of EUR 50,000 was considered too low to prevent non-professional investors from investing in funds that are exempt from supervision.
