Course description

Derivatives Accounting IFRS9: 2 day training course in Hedge Accounting

This programme will give you a deep understanding of derivatives accounting and the application of hedge accounting for the interest rate, inflation and FX markets. Learning is based on intense use of real cases, applying IFRS9 step-by-step. The new requirements are contrasted with IAS 39 where needed, with detailed discussions on the implementation of new rules.

Case studies and workshops simulate real-life client discussions and cover the decision-making, documentation requirements, hedge effectiveness assessment, and the accounting entries of a hedging strategy during its life.

All participants will receive a copy of Juan Ramirez's book "Accounting for Derivatives: Advanced Hedging under IFRS", published by Wiley Finance.
