Letter of the Chair of Friends of P.R.I.M.E. Finance

Dearest Friends,

I am excited to report that 2016 was a very productive year for P.R.I.M.E. Finance. We are making real progress in fulfilling the goals we set at our founding five years ago. P.R.I.M.E. Finance has conducted meaningful programs around educating jurists in sophisticated financial instruments around the globe, and we will soon be announcing a ground breaking, unique database of relevant law and precedents on complex financial disputes. In addition, we have taken further dynamic steps in developing a flow of arbitration cases by developing forms of amendment agreements to modify existing ISDA Master Agreements, as well as develop model clauses that can be used to provide for arbitration in new ISDA Master Agreements. Furthermore, the Secretariat now is approached frequently for expert services, which seems to confirm the need for expertise on this vital subject matter.

Our organization could not have accomplished as much as it has this year without its very small staff and the intellectual/pro bono contributions from its Boards and Experts. We are also fortunate to have the continuing support of the Dutch government, our annual conference, the EBRD and the IBA. I am pleased to report that we currently operate in the black.

Now is the opportune moment to capitalize on our accomplishments and accelerate our efforts to fully realize the organization’s potential. Our progress depends on further financial support, and for that reason, we are reaching out to additional revenue sources as well as “Friends of P.R.I.M.E.” Friends of P.R.I.M.E. was established four years ago with the enthusiastic and generous support of the P.R.I.M.E. Finance Board, Advisory Board and various Friends. The € 80.750 we have raised through Friends of P.R.I.M.E. went directly into program support. We have set our 2017 Friends of P.R.I.M.E. goal at € 100,000, and I am asking you for your help in getting there. Several giving levels and acknowledgement opportunities are available; complete information on becoming a Friend of P.R.I.M.E. is included in a separate flyer that is being distributed at the Conference. Your contribution will be of invaluable help as we expand our programs and services toward our ultimate goal of self-sustainability. Please complete and return the included form to make your contribution. We need your support!

We look forward to welcoming you into our Friends of P.R.I.M.E. community, and thank you in advance for your generosity.

Sincerely,
Tom Jasper
Member of the Advisory Board of P.R.I.M.E. Finance and Chair of Friends of P.R.I.M.E. Finance
