The public registers of De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) and the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) list financial institutions active in the Netherlands.
DNB’s public registers list all financial institutions with a licence from DNB or registered by law. Most of these registers also state what activities these institutions may carry out in the Netherlands. You can search one specific register or all registers at the same time. Type the name of the institution in the search box and click ‘Search’.
Under the law, financial institutions and their shareholders have to make specific notifications. The AFM receives these notifications and enters them in the registers after approval. These registers carry the AFM logo. If you select one, you will go to the AFM register page. There you can search one specific register or all registers at the same time.
As a result of the expiry of the transitional period after Brexit, the public DNB Financial Supervision Act (Wft) register for incoming and outgoing notifications from/to the UK has been updated as of 1 January 2021. This means, for instance, that notifications entered in the Wft register for cross-border services to or from the UK, including Gibraltar, via passporting rights or the establishment of a branch, have been removed from the Wft Register. You can find an overview of the notifications that have been deleted here.
