Slated to take place in New York City from November 12 – 13, the conference will be themed, “Current Industry Trends & Strategies for Hedge Accounting and Financial Instruments.”

The two-day conference will inform accounting and financial professionals about the new direction the FASB is taking with hedge accounting and will explore how the proposed changes will impact existing hedge programs and likely invite increased application of the standard.
