    There is a lot happening within our SIGs and Projects, and we want to highlight some, including Financial Objects.The FINOS Financial Objects SIG (Special Interest Group) is a community-led forum to discuss and identify the need for new, open financial object standards as well as modifications to existing standards, and The goal of the Financial Objects SIG is to provide a neutral forum for individuals across the financial services industry to collectively identify the need for new, open, financial objects standards as well as modifications to existing ones. The Financial Objects SIG also aims to promote the adoption of financial object definitions and models that support common industry workflows and use cases.In January 2021, The FO SIG proposed and launched two projects: the Commodities Payout and the Product Control Common Template. It became evident that after the launch of the two working streams, there were overarching, common elements to these work streams (modeling financial objects, using Legend & the FINOS hosted Legend Studio instance, and leveraging the ISDA CDM); every workstream has specific requirements that warrant separate governance structures.
