This paper provides regulators who seek to (further) develop a risk-based supervision approach with a framework to systematically assess their current position and future options. A range of self analysis questions and practical examples guide regulators towards sensible design choices, given their particular context. The paper is focused on financial consumer protection regulators, but is equally valuable for regulators in other domains.

Ambiguous Signaling in Regulatory Conversations

Scholarly paper

This case study investigates interactions between inspectors and regulatee representatives during regulatory conversations.

Analysing discrepancies in terms of relationship types and associated relational signals helps explain and prevent suboptimal communication and reduced acceptance of regulators’ demands by regulatees.

Wetenschappelijk artikel

Geef toezichthouders ook kaders voor hun buitenwettelijk toezicht

Opiniërend artikel

Dit artikel geeft een indruk van het informele machtsspel tussen de AFM en de banken, daar waar de AFM geen wettelijke grondslag heeft (buitenwettelijk toezicht). Het artikel belicht voor- en nadelen van dergelijk toezicht en pleit voor een beleidskader om de de legitimiteit van buitenwettelijk toezicht te vergroten.
