P.R.I.M.E. Finance is the Panel of Recognised International Market Experts in Finance, an independent, not-for-profit foundation based in The Hague. Through this community of legal and financial Experts, we facilitate the exchange of ideas that enables us to pursue our mission of promoting certainty and reducing risk in the global financial markets. We seek to anticipate where and when contractual disputes may arise and to develop solutions to address them. Our goal is to foster greater financial market stability and increased confidence in global finance. 


P.R.I.M.E. Finance began with a focus on derivatives and other complex financial products. We have now expanded our focus to encompass sustainable finance and financial technology.

Our core activities leverage our unique cross-disciplinary group of Experts to:

(i) build capacity in developed and developing countries to better understand capital markets and financial contracts through judicial training and law reform initiatives, working with other organisations that share this focus;

(ii) offer dispute resolution services, including arbitration and mediation, with arbitrations under the P.R.I.M.E. Finance Arbitration Rules being administered by the Permanent Court of Arbitration;

(iii) provide continuing education through conferences and webinars; and 

(iv) create, in collaboration with LexisNexis, content relevant to financial market disputes.
