Thank you for joining us!

The 7th P.R.I.M.E. Finance Annual Conference welcomed a record number of attendees. With over 350 registrations, this has been our biggest conference yet. As is a tradition now, the event was held at the Peace Palace in The Hague. The conference is an excellent opportunity to gain insight into recent case law and related topical issues regarding complex financial products, and also offers a unique chance to personally discuss these developments with many of the members of our Panel of Experts who are present at the event.

We thank you for having joined this year and look forward to welcoming you again in The Hague in 2019!
