On June 17, 2021, the Au­torité des marchés fi­nanciers (AMF) pub­lished its Enforcement Report for the 2020-2021 fiscal year. Despite the pandemic, the AMF reports that its inspection, investigation and prosecution teams were very proactive and able to maintain their operations remotely, achieving more-than satisfactory progress and results.

During the period, the AMF instituted a large number of prosecutions and obtained important rulings that sent deterrent messages. Throughout 2020-2021, the AMF also continued its offensive on the crypto asset front and initiated major proceedings when investigations found a number of offences being committed via virtual spaces in the crypto asset ecosystem.

The inspection team was very busy, particularly as it had to integrate mortgage brokerage into its inspection activities and oversee registrants’ management of the pandemic.

Fiscal 2020-2021 was also a landmark year with the rollout of major projects such as electronic evidence management (AÉP) and the Market Analysis Platform (MAP). These projects have now been completed, and the tools developed under them are being used daily by the AMF’s market surveillance specialists, intelligence analysts, data science experts, investigators, and prosecutors.
