The AMF sets guidelines for various financial institution categories.

These guidelines help set standards governing the activities and conduct of these institutions, particularly with regard to solvency (capital adequacy) and sound and prudent management practices.

The following diagram presents the guidelines that convey the expectations of the AMF for financial institutions and illustrates the philosophy of the AMF in the development of prudential supervision.
