Access our missions: regulate, supervise, inform and protect
Since 2010, the Joint Unit of the ACPR and the AMF has fulfilled its role of protecting customers in the banking, insurance and financial services sectors. At a press conference held today, Claire Castanet, Joint Unit coordinator and Executive Director of Retail Investor Relations at the AMF, and Olivier Fliche, Head of Business Practices Supervision at the ACPR, reviewed the past year and looked at the key highlights.
The authorities continue to actively oversee the business practices of the players involved. The Joint Unit examined numerous disclosures on websites, in the press, in mail shots and emailings, and on the social networks.
The supervisory work carried out in 2017 by the ACPR and the AMF was consistent with that in previous years.
The two authorities will pursue their missions with the unwavering objective of improving practices and ensuring better customer protection. In 2018, they will also be playing a support role as part of the major regulatory changes constituted by MiFID 2, PRIIPs and IDD. As these texts are aimed at the convergence of customer protection rules in the three sectors of banking, insurance and finance, the Joint Unit will be fully mobilised to enlighten the market, ensure that rules are properly understood and oversee the application of these requirements.
