      SWIFT, representing the banking and financial community would like to express its objectin with respect to the application of the top level domain .fin requested by the Association Monegasque des Banques.
We believe that the entire financial community has an interest in .fin and that the support, regulation and administration of such TLD should be given to a not for profit organisation representing the financial community at large, as SWIFT.
SWIFT is a cooperative organisation owned by banks and which provides secure global communication to close to 7000 financial institutions in 200 countries. The object of SWIFT as per its Articles of Association is "for the collective benefit of the members of the company, the study, creation, utilisation and operation of the means necessary for the telecommunication, transmission and routing of private, confidential and proprietary financial messages".
In view of the above, we believe that SWIFT has legitimate ground to object to this application.

Note: we also refer to our message dd 5 October whereby we informed you of our willingness to apply in this round of application.

Blanche petre
General Counsel of SWIFT
