The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Commission on Arbitration and ADR's Task Force on Financial Institutions and International Arbitration has published a Report on Financial Institutions and International Arbitration. The findings in the report indicate that the Task Force found there to be a general lack of awareness of the potential benefits of arbitration and some common misconceptions about the process, although it was clear that financial institutions do use arbitration. The report sets out detailed recommendations for tailoring arbitration procedures to suit the needs of the finance and banking sector, including the use of case management techniques to reduce time and costs, and also flags other aspects of procedure on which parties may seek to agree, such as confidentiality, arbitrator qualifications, interim relief, joinder and consolidation and costs.
