Please complete the required fields.

AFM founder Arthur Docters van Leeuwen passed away in the night of Friday 14 August 2020 at the age of 75.

As the AFM’s first chair, Arthur Docters van Leeuwen put the supervision of the financial sector in the Netherlands on the map. In the period 1999-2007 he was responsible for extending securities supervision (Securities Board of the Netherlands) to supervising the conduct of the financial sector as a whole (AFM).


Martin van Rijn, chair of the AFM’s Supervisory Board: ‘With the passing of former chair Docters van Leeuwen, we lose one of the founders of the AFM. His clear vision is what underlies our current organisation. He set out to create a vigorous, independent, and nationally and internationally renowned supervisory authority with a sharp focus on the market, fast reflexes and a prominent presence in the public debate. That vision is still being propagated to this very day.’

Flying start

Laura van Geest, chair of AFM: ‘We are very grateful to Arthur for everything he did for us. He got the AFM off to a flying start as a supervisory authority, thus making a huge contribution to improving sustainable financial well-being in the Netherlands.’
