- Excerpt from Regulatory Authorities: Securities and Market Authority - Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) – Administrative judge notes that an appeal against a financial penalty ordered by the AMF may actually increase the fine -

If an appeal is lodged against an AMF decision to levy a financial penalty, the appeal judge has to verify that the penalty is proportionate in relation to the breaches and the financial situation of the fined party. The Conseil d’État has noted in a recent case that this means there is a possibility that the judge may in fact find that the fine should be increased.
