On June 7, 2017, the FASB indicated it will approve the proposed amendments to ASC 815 – Derivatives and Hedging that will better align economic results of an entity’s risk management activities with its financial reporting and make targeted improvements to simplify hedge accounting. The majority of the improvements will make fair value hedging easier to apply and result in less volatility in the financial statements. In this webinar we will explore the key changes to fair value hedging for Financial Institutions, analyze the impacts on common hedging strategies, and discuss new hedging possibilities.
In this webinar, Chatham will cover the following learning objectives:
– Understand the changes to fair value hedging
– Understand the impact of these changes on common fair value hedging strategies
