P.R.I.M.E. Finance 2017 Conference

Camilla Perera-De Wit, head of secretariat at P.R.I.M.E. Finance Foundation and legal counsel at the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA), discusses the main issues discussed at the 2017 P.R.I.M.E. Finance 2017 conference.

What is P.R.I.M.E. Finance?

P.R.I.M.E. Finance stands for the panel of Recognized International Market Experts in Finance, an innovative collaboration launched in January 2012. The project was established to help resolve, and to assist judicial systems in the resolution of, disputes concerning complex financial transactions. P.R.I.M.E. Finance has the support of key international regulatory bodies and is complementary to the on-going financial market reforms process.

P.R.I.M.E. Finance’s great strength lies in the knowledge and training of the group of legal and market experts in its ranks, an offering which currently includes more than 130 of the most senior people from the world of finance and financial markets law with collectively more than 4,000 years of relevant experience. Through our Panel, we provide independent and multi-jurisdictional expertise in relation to complex financial disputes.

The P.R.I.M.E. Finance Foundation, an independent not-for-profit institute based in The Hague, oversees and supports the global role played by its Panel of Experts. The core activities include dispute resolution (including arbitration, mediation, expert witness services, determinations and risk assessment), judicial training and support, and the compilation of a central database of international precedents and source materials.

The PCA and P.R.I.M.E. Finance entered into a cooperation agreement on 7 December 2015. P.R.I.M.E. Finance’s filing address is the Peace Palace in The Hague. The arbitrations under the P.R.I.M.E. Finance Arbitration Rules will be administered by the PCA. These arbitrations may take place anywhere in the world, and may be facilitated by the PCA’s host country agreements with a number of its contracting parties.
