This two-day intensive and interactive workshop is dedicated to the application of hedge accounting in accordance with the new requirements introduced by IFRS 9 Financial instruments. You can participate in this workshop ONLINE LIVE - join us wherever you are in the world!

Hedge accounting is a useful accounting tool that enables the presentation of derivatives concluded for the purpose of risk management, at fair value without affecting the financial result of the company.

However under IFRS 9, the use of hedge accounting is a privilege, available only on condition of meeting certain economic and other criteria, which are barriers difficult to overcome by many companies wishing to benefit from hedge accounting.

The goal of the workshop is equipping the participants with up to date and practical knowledge and skills to enable them to achieve hedge accounting.

At the workshop we bring practical examples of the use of derivative instruments in hedging of financial risks. During the course participants will solve real-life case studies of application of hedge accounting for foreign exchange rate risk and interest rate risk, using excel spreadsheets.
