Each year, the AMF Chairman addresses the French President in the preface to the institution’s Annual Report. This year, against the backdrop of the current global health crisis, Robert Ophèle describes the initial effects of the pandemic on the fields falling within the AMF’s remit. He provides a recap of the various measures taken by the Authority in recent weeks to guarantee the orderly functioning of the markets and financial ecosystem, and to protect retail investors. The AMF has been fully mobilised, despite the lockdown affecting nearly all its staff, in order to ensure fine monitoring of specific situations, an overall analysis of the situation and the adjustment of its regulatory responses. Finally, Robert Ophèle refers to the challenges yet to come.
