Accounting for Derivatives under US GAAP

This program will give you a deep understanding of derivatives accounting and the application of hedge accounting for the interest rate, inflation, FX, and commodities markets. Learning is based on an intense use of real cases, applying ASC 815 step-by-step and incorporating the changes in ASU 2017-12. The new requirements are contrasted with the previous ones 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.
