Mr Bos has informed the Second Chamber of Parliament of his conclusions arising from the evaluation report on the actions of the AFM, the Dutch Central Bank and the Minister of Finance during the acquisition of ABN AMRO. In his report, Minister Bos considered:

  • the role of the shareholders in the acquisition
  • the declaration of no-objection by the Central Bank and the Minister of Finance
  • the supervision by the AFM of the acquisition process.

The Minister of Finance did not consider the more general aspects of the supervision exercised on financial institutions. He noted that he intends to reconsider this in the near future.
