KNOWLEDGE PLUS - Business Training & Consulting

Although accountants are not specifically trained in the inner workings of hedging and financial instruments, they are often called upon for advice in these areas, particularly to hedge various risks. Alternatively, accountants may be uninvolved in the business decisions related to hedging but perform the accounting related to such tasks. However, performing the accounting requires a basic understanding of the business transactions behind financial instruments.

This course reviews the business side of finance, hedging, and treasury transactions and provides accountants with a solid understanding of some of the key financial principles to obtain a better understanding of the business aspects.

Topics covered

  • Financial instruments - the business aspect
  • Hedging - key principles
  • Over-the-counter (OTC) vs Exchanges
