Supervision consultation

Published: 26 November 2020

The iPanel provides strategic advice to the iForum. The iPanel members discuss market trends and developments in the areas where technological innovation and supervision meet. On the basis of these discussions at strategic level the iPanel issues an opinion, for instance on the prioritisation of new initiatives, or on whether the course of existing initiatives needs adjusting.

DNB and the iPanel

The iPanel does not advise on the supervision of individual institutions, on DNB's supervision activities or on DNB's supervisory approach. This is because some of the iPanel members are directly supervised by DNB or represent such institutions. However, we may discuss proposed adjustments to the supervisory methodology with the iPanel in order to obtain its input.


The iPanel members represent the financial supervisory authorities DNB and AFM, the Ministry of Finance and various branches within the financial sector, such as banks, insurers, pension institutions and payment service providers. The Ministry of Finance has an observer role in the iPanel.


The members of the iPanel work at senior management level in their own organisation and are responsible for innovation or digitalisation. They are opinion-formers in the field of innovation in the financial sector. The iPanel advises the iForum on behalf of the financial sector, which means the members must give their opinion on behalf of the entire financial sector and not just on behalf of their own organisation. The iPanel comprises the following members:

iPanel meetings

The iPanel meets on a quarterly basis. DNB prepares and coordinates the meetings, and calls on the sector to submit suggestions. DNB prepares the minutes and publishes the iPanel's advice on the iPlatform. Read more about the iPlatform in the Charter.
