Access our missions: regulate, supervise, inform and protect
The Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) regulates the French financial market place, its participants and the investment products distributed via the markets. It also ensures that investors are properly informed and and is a driving force behind regulatory change at both European and international levels. As an independent public authority, it has regulatory powers and a substantial level of financial and managerial independence.
The AMF’s remit is to ensure that
We take financial stability objectives into account when performing our tasks. The AMF is also responsible for ensuring the quality of the information provided by management companies on their strategy for combating climate change.
To carry out our tasks, we are required to regulate, authorise, monitor and where necessary, inspect, investigate and enforce. We contribute to financial and international regulation. We also ensure that investors are properly informed, and when necessary, we provide them with assistance Via our financial ombudsman.
The AMF intervene to regulate:
The AMF was set up in 2003 and is an independent public authority. We are legally, functionally and financially independent.
Independence is fundamental to the performance of our tasks. It is expressed daily, in our analyses, positions and decisions, always with a view to acting in the broader public interest.
Openness is an essential quality for performing our regulatory tasks today. We are in tune with our environment, and are committed to contributing to changes in society and playing an active role in the construction of Europe to shape tomorrow’s finance.
It is our staff, their professionalism, their fields of competence and their unflagging commitment that make the AMF what it is.
