ABN AMRO is regulated by the European Central Bank (ECB), in close cooperation with the Dutch Central Bank (De Nederlandsche Bank or DNB), and by the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (Autoriteit Financiƫle Markten or AFM).

In the framework of the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM), the ECB is responsible for regulating the larger banks in the euro area. The main aims of the SSM are to contribute to the safety and soundness of credit institutions and the stability of the European financial system and to ensure consistent supervision.

The AFM supervises the operation of the financial markets in the Netherlands and monitors the behaviour of the entire financial services industry: savings, investments, insurance and loans.
