Consultation on market entry for banks

The Dutch Ministry of Finance has started a consultation on the issue of market entrance for banks. See this link (in Dutch). Their main question is if and how credit-institutions (that are subject to prudential supervision of the Nederlandsche Bank) should be subject to behavioural supervision (by the Autoriteit Financiƫle Markten) if they base their credit to customers on stocks and bonds. Should the supervisory activities be combined or should they be supervised independently?
