Accounting for Derivatives: Advanced Hedging under IFRS is a comprehensive practical guide to hedge accounting. This book is neither written by auditors afraid of providing opinions on strategies for which accounting rules are not clear, nor by accounting professors lacking practical experience. Instead, it is based on day-to-day experience, advising corporate CFOs and treasurers on sophisticated hedging strategies. It covers the most frequent hedging strategies and addresses the most pressing challenges that corporate executives find today.
The book is case-driven with each case analysing in detail a real-life hedging strategy. A broad range of hedging strategies have been included, some of them using sophisticated derivatives.
The objective of this book is to provide a conceptual framework based on the extensive use of cases so that readers can create their own accounting interpretation of the hedging strategy being considered. Accounting for Derivatives will be essential reading for CFOs, internal auditors and treasurers of corporations, professional accountants as well as derivatives professionals working at commercial and investment banks.

*The only book to cover IAS39 from the derivatives practitioner’s perspective
*Extensive real-life case studies to providing essential information for the practitioner
