P.R.I.M.E. Finance conference 2018

Kristy Tillman, executive director at P.R.I.M.E. Finance discusses P.R.I.M.E. Finance’s key achievements in 2017, plans for 2018 and the main issues discussed at the P.R.I.M.E. Finance conference 2018.

What have been P.R.I.M.E. Finance’s key achievements in 2017?

We have had a number of successes this year at P.R.I.M.E. Finance.

First, we have increased the size and scope of our Expert Panel. We now have 159 internationally recognized finance and dispute resolution experts on our panel. These experts come from twenty-nine countries across the globe, and we are continuing to expand both in number and countries represented.

Second, we finalised our agreement with LexisNexis to launch a first-of-its-kind case law database that will provide P.R.I.M.E. Finance Experts and the judges we train access to complex financial cases from multiple jurisdictions, as well as to the Lexis Banking & Finance and Arbitration PSL products.

Third, we continued to see the uptake of the P.R.I.M.E. Finance/PCA arbitration clause in agreements by market actors.

Finally, we continued our special judicial training program by training judges in Taiwan and Australia in complex financial instruments and standard documentation. As a result, we have now trained judges on 18 occasions in 11 countries and 5 continents.

Now in its seventh iteration, we wanted this year's conference to fully represent the breadth and scope of our experts' knowledge and talent.
