    Dear Mrs. Blanche Petre,
Netbay, the applicant to be the registry for the .FIN domain, and its shareholders wish to respond to the objection by SWIFT:
As stated in response to another comment, the AMB is acting as a “starter” for the .FIN domain. The AMB will not be the association that will establish the conditions and the rules under which second level names will be registered in .FIN.

The AMB realized that the extremely short time frame for the preparation of applications for new top level domains precluded the immediate creation of a globally representative sponsoring organization. The AMB acts as initial sponsoring organization in accordance with its application, and, as indicated in its application, it will take steps promptly to contribute to the establishment of the .FIN Sponsoring Organization, as a globally representative organization that will represent equitably all the components of the financial sector (e.g., by type of business and geographically).

The AMB strongly favors a situation in which professional organizations, such as SWIFT  (for banks) and other organizations (for insurance companies and other components of the financial world), would participate actively in the foundation and the management of the Financial Internet Domain Association.

As mentionned in the application, this Sponsoring Organization will be a not for profit organization. The administrative and technical services for registration will be handled by Netbay ( the Registry). The profit that will derive from the operation will represent a fair remuneration of the invested capital given the business risks involved.
