In recent years, there has been increased interest in the use of international arbitration to resolve financial services disputes—and, in particular, disputes involving financial instruments such as swaps and other derivatives.

In his chapter entitled “Damages in Financial Services Arbitrations”, which is featured in Global Arbitration Review's second edition of The Guide to Damages in International Arbitration, NERA Managing Director Dr Chudozie Okongwu discusses general concepts applicable to the valuation of all financial instruments and more complex concepts that are particularly important in the context of valuing derivatives. He also provides examples of how changes in financial regulation can affect the valuation of financial products.

The Guide to Damages in International Arbitration is designed to help all participants in the international arbitration community discuss damages issues more effectively and communicate them better to tribunals, with the aim of producing better awards.

Accreditation: This chapter is an extract from the second edition of GAR’s Guide to Damages in International Arbitration, first published in December 2017. The whole publication is available here.
