Derivatives and Hedge Accounting
Derivatives & Hedge Accounting is written specially to help readers unravel the complexity of hedge accounting. The book addresses hedge accounting and two key international standards: IAS 39 Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement (known as FRS 39 in Singapore) and the new IFRS 9 Financial Instruments (known as FRS 109 in Singapore) issued in November 2014.
Authors Ng Eng Juan et al. take a straight-forward step-by-step approach to deal with the complex topic in just three chapters:
Chapter 1 Accounting for Derivatives discusses the nature, valuation and accounting for the four common types of derivatives: options, forwards, futures and swaps.
Chapter 2 Hedge Accounting under IAS 39 looks at hedge accounting under the existing IAS 39 standard.
Chapter 3 Hedge Accounting under IFRS 9 looks at hedge accounting under the new IFRS 9 standard.
Key Features & Benefits
Promotes understanding of complex topic – Although hedge accounting is not easy, this book singularly focused on hedge accounting leads students and accountants to boldly tackle the topic. Its straight-forward approach helps readers to get a good grasp of the complex topic.
Up-to-date with both standards – This book discusses the hedge accounting requirements of both the IAS 39 standard and the IFRS 9 standard. It is useful to those who continue to use IAS 39 (or FRS 39) for hedge accounting purposes as well as those who choose to adopt IFRS 9 (or FRS 109).
IFRS 9 for Singapore accountants – Chapter 3 on Hedge Accounting under IFRS 9 is especially important for Singapore accountants as the IFRS 9 is newly adopted in Singapore. The Accounting Standards Council of Singapore had previously not adopted earlier versions of the IFRS.
Wider understanding of hedging – The explanations provided are designed to help readers appreciate the economic and accounting impact of hedging and hedge accounting as a whole.

This established and popular text is regarded as one of the clearest and most comprehensive in its field. David Eadson has joined Jon Curwin and Roger Slater in the author team, and together they have sought to offer a more compact book with all the qualities of the previous six editions, whilst strengthening the links to online support materials. The new edition has been enhanced to reflect the latest learning plans and techniques, providing students with all the tools they need to pass the typical Quantitative Methods course. Each chapter focuses on a selection of statistical techniques, illustrated with examples from across business, marketing, economics, finance, and public administration, to appeal to students across the business spectrum. Whilst all core material is covered in the book itself, the online offering has been bolstered to include Parts 6-8 covering ‘Modelling’, ‘Mathematical Topics’ and ‘Student Guides’ respectively, in addition to a wide range of other resources including datasets and extra learning tools. Visual signposts throughout the text guide the student to the online platform to provide a seamless interaction between the two thus providing a multi-faceted learning experience. The wide-ranging coverage provided makes this the ideal text for the teaching of quantitative methods across all business disciplines at undergraduate, MBA, and post-experience levels. This textbook is autopackaged with CourseMate. CourseMate brings course concepts to life with interactive learning, study, and exam preparation tools that support the printed textbook and the textbook-specific website. CourseMate includes an integrated eBook and interactive teaching and learning tools including quizzes, flashcards, videos, and more and an EngagementTracker, a first-of-its-kind tool that monitors student engagement in the course.
