Regulatory changes impact hedge accounting- In order to avoid earnings volatility, hedges that qualify as highly effective can be afforded hedge accounting treatment. However implementing hedge accounting requires a large amount of work documenting the hedge relationship and proving both prospectively and retrospectively that the hedge relationship is effective. Evolving regulations and accounting standards (e.g. IFRS 9) make it more difficult to keep systems current with the latest rules and methodologies. Regulation – preparing for the inevitable- A wave of high-profile regulation is steadily being codified into rules by government agencies around the world. With the stakes so high and the cost of regulation escalating, firms are looking to understand the implications of the regulatory onslaught and build the necessary solutions. Costs and risks associated with front to back office reconciliation- Because many firms use different systems that are not well integrated, people performing different functions aren’t using a single, consistent set of information. Errors that arise in transferring data between systems need to be corrected introducing delays for users; for a trader or risk manager who wants to see trading positions in real-time this can be critical.
