Review of P.R.I.M.E. Finance Arbitration Rules

From its inception, it was envisaged that P.R.I.M.E. Finance would offer a specialised forum for finance disputes to be resolved by arbitration. The P.R.I.M.E. Finance Arbitration Rules (the Rules) were drafted accordingly.

The Rules are currently under review, with a draft now published for public comment. The aim of the exercise is to ensure the Rules are fully fit-for-purpose for users, reflecting current best practice in arbitration while preserving and expanding features of particular interest to financial market participants.
