Uncertain times posing challenges

In uncertain times, with high market volatility, it is imperative to have a well-defined hedge accounting process and flawless execution. The hedge effectiveness of the hedge accounting relationship may be compromised, or the hedged exposure may disappear resulting in an immediate P&L effect. By taking control of these issues, you can focus on what is really important for your operation!

Regulatory landscape

Hedge accounting provides the alignment of the accounting treatment of your hedged item with the hedging instrument. Hedge accounting can be applied subject to compliance with the requirements set out in IFRS 9/IAS 39, RJ 290 or ASC 815. Adhering to these requirements can be complicated and challenging. Furthermore, the introduction of IFRS 9 has led to some changes in the hedge accounting requirements. Read more about these changes in this article.
