AFM to boost appeal success rate

The financial services watchdog AFM is to take action to reduce its high failure rate when its rulings are legally challenged. Of the 57 cases taken to appeal since 2000, the AFM has lost 23, the Financieele Dagblad reported on Tuesday.

The AFM is considering setting up its own independent commission to check cases prior to going to court, the paper said.
