  3. 3. Page 3 | Proprietary and Copyrighted Information IFRS 9: Hedge Accounting – Hedging Basics under IPSAS 29 (IAS 39) Financial Instruments: Update of IPSAS 28-30 • What is hedge accounting  Hedged item  Hedged risk  Hedging instrument • Types of hedges  Fair value hedge  Cash flow hedge  Net investment hedge
  4. 4. Page 4 | Proprietary and Copyrighted Information IFRS 9: Hedge Accounting – New General Hedge Accounting Model Financial Instruments: Update of IPSAS 28-30 Overall: The new model is more practical, flexible, and principle based, and better reflects the risk management practices • Existing hedge accounting model under IPSAS 29 (IAS 39)  Too stringent - complex and difficult to apply  Not reflective of risk management practices • Hedge accounting under IFRS 9  Widens the range of situations for applying hedge accounting  Replaces onerous rules with principle based guidance
  5. 5. Page 5 | Proprietary and Copyrighted Information IFRS 9: Hedge Accounting – Major Changes Financial Instruments: Update of IPSAS 28-30 • Eligibility of Hedging Instruments  More inclusive, not limited to derivative instruments Example: To hedge the fair value of a large inventory of crude oil, you invest into a fund with a portfolio of commodity- linked instruments. o Previously under IPSAS 29 (IAS 39), cannot apply hedge accounting (derivatives only as hedging instruments in a fair value hedge) o Now under IFRS 9, can apply hedge accounting (designation of non- derivative instruments measured at FVTPL allowed)
  6. 6. Page 6 | Proprietary and Copyrighted Information IFRS 9: Hedge Accounting – Major Changes Financial Instruments: Update of IPSAS 28-30 • Eligibility of Hedged Items  Allows a risk component of a non- financial item if separately identifiable and measureable Example: Airline faces price risk in jet fuel. Price of jet fuel changes due to inflation, changing crude oil prices, foreign currency risk and other factors. Airline decides to hedge only the crude oil price component by purchasing forward contracts on crude oil. o Previously under IPSAS 29 (IAS 39), cannot apply hedge accounting (allows hedging non-financial items only in entirety) o Now under IFRS 9, can apply hedge accounting (designation of a separate risk component of a non-financial item as a hedged item allowed)  Expands range of eligible hedged items (net positions, synthetic positions)
  7. 7.

  8. 8. Page 8 | Proprietary and Copyrighted Information IFRS 9: Hedge Accounting – Major Changes Financial Instruments: Update of IPSAS 28-30 • Rebalancing  Allows modifications without terminating the hedge • Accounting for options, forwards, and foreign currency derivatives  Reduces profit or loss volatility when compared with IAS 39 • Discontinuing hedge accounting  Does not allow terminating a hedging relationship voluntarily
  9. 9. Page 9 | Proprietary and Copyrighted Information IFRS 9: Hedge Accounting – Key Elements that Remained the Same Financial Instruments: Update of IPSAS 28-30 • Types of Hedges • Optional Application • Terminology • Requirement for hedge documentation • Hedge ineffectiveness recognition in P&L
