Thijs Knaap at BNR about Musk's offer on Twitter

Published on: 20 April 2022

Twitter's stock price closed last week after Elon Musk made a $43 billion offer to buy the company. This means that the financial world does not take the takeover offer of the Tesla boss very seriously. During the BNR Zaken Doen investor panel, APG's chief economist Thijs Knaap wondered whether this skepticism was justified.


In addition, the investor panel discussed the AFM's willingness to 'peep in' and pay whistleblowers for information to prevent criminal activities in the financial world. Knaap does not know whether this is the right way, but that the financial market would benefit from a credible supervisor such as the AFM as far as he is concerned.


And: it took a while, but now it seems that the ECB is finally ready for a policy rate hike. Knaap explains why it took so long.
