About P.R.I.M.E. Finance
P.R.I.M.E. Finance stands for the Panel of Recognized International Market Experts in Finance. 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 regulatory reform process.
Our core activities, and three pillars upon which P.R.I.M.E. Finance is based, include:
(i) dispute resolution services, including arbitration, mediation and expert opinions, determinations and risk assessment;
(ii) judicial training and education; and
(iii) the compilation of a central database of international precedents and source materials.
With support from the Dutch authorities, P.R.I.M.E. Finance, a not-for-profit foundation, officially opened for business in January of 2012. Its first case and fee for assisting in finding expert witnesses quickly followed. Through its service of developing specialized derivatives and arbitration programs for the judiciary, both in advanced and developing economies, P.R.I.M.E. Finance, together with collaborating entities, also provides judicial support, issues supporting expert advice and engages in relevant research. As part of that work, our formal training initiative in finance and other technical assistance and support for judges in domestic courts has expanded rapidly. P.R.I.M.E. Finance experts have now presented to judges on 15 visit to courts in 9 countries on 4 continents. An award for “Best Newcomer” at the GAR arbitration awards ceremony in Stockholm and nominations for several innovation awards have also been achieved. And a “P.R.I.M.E. Finance Fellowship” has been created at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study (NIAS) to promote research in the field of law relevant to the activities of P.R.I.M.E. Finance.
P.R.I.M.E. Finance was one of seven international arbitration centers acknowledged by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) in the 2013 ISDA Arbitration Guide. The Guide provides a range of model arbitration clauses tailored for use with the industry standard 1992 and 2002 ISDA Master Agreements. P.R.I.M.E. Finance also completed a project to develop forms of amendment agreements to modify existing 1992 or 2002 ISDA Master Agreements to provide for arbitration in accordance with the P.R.I.M.E. Finance Arbitration Rules.
Cooperation with Permanent Court of Arbitration
The Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) and P.R.I.M.E. Finance entered into a cooperation agreement. 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.
