Approval for financial holding company of investment firms



Does DNB expect a Dutch financial holding company of a financial group consisting of investment firms only to submit an application to DNB for approval (Section 3:280b of the Wft) or an application for exemption from this approval requirement (Section 3:280c of the Wft)?

No, in view of the introduction of the new prudential regime for investment firms (IFD) on 26 June 2021, we do not consider it expedient to subject financial holdings of investment firms that will fall under this new regime to this approval requirement. This policy position is in line with the position of the European legislator (see Directive (EU) 2021/338).
