Hedge accounting


Reducing P&L volatility with hedge accounting

Hedge accounting is an accounting method defined in IAS 39 and IFRS 9 for the recognition of hedging relationships. In principle, both 1:1 hedge relationships and portfolio hedges can be accounted for. The need for a separate accounting standard arises from the accounting mismatch that exists between the hedging instruments (derivative at fair value) and the hedged items (generally interest-bearing transactions at amortized cost). The application of hedge accounting is intended to resolve this mismatch and reconcile the accounting and economic perspectives. Furthermore, hedge accounting creates methodological consistency between accounting and the management activities in risk controlling.
