Clients have long looked to Hedge Trackers for guidance and support in the fields of derivative accounting and hedge program management.
In response, we have developed a robust knowledge transfer program, providing training and education focused on relevant industry topics.
Accounting guidance and best practices on exposure quantification, hedge accounting, and trading protocols change regularly—and the interpretation thereof by auditors change more regularly. We help our clients (and professionals in the field) stay on the cutting edge with customized on- and off-site training sessions, as well as regular webinars on relevant topics.
Most Hedge Trackers training courses qualify for Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits.
Whatever the format, we strive to create a practical, engaging environment that encourages individualized learning and networking. Sessions are led by our team of seasoned consultants, who aim to enhance your technical and professional capabilities – sending you back to your job better prepared to understand and tackle your unique challenges.
Regular training areas include foreign currency derivative accounting, interest rate-focused derivative accounting and commodity derivative accounting.

Hedge Trackers’ regular webinars offer the most up-to-date information about current trends and developments in foreign currency, interest rate and commodity derivative accounting and reporting. The best part? You don’t even need to leave your home or office.
Our webinar series covers everything from hedge documentation to changes in ASC 815 (FAS 133) compliance. Attendance is a must for hedge accounting professionals who need to stay current with industry trends and best practices.
We conduct regularly scheduled workshop sessions at our Silicon Valley training center (or our New York and Chicago offices), with focuses on foreign currency, interest rate and commodity hedging.
Led by Hedge Trackers’ team of professional consultants, these practical, effective sessions are delivered in a friendly, small-group environment, allowing for both general education and a focus on attendees’ specific issues. Most courses are available for remote attendance and qualify for CPE credits.
Client Site Training
Our client site training courses are designed to provide a convenient forum in which all essential personnel can participate, ensuring that every stakeholder clearly understands the company’s specific application of derivative accounting guidance, with a focus on when and how their program will impact their financial statements.
Client site training not only creates an environment that facilitates a common understanding of the challenges and issues facing your organization but also helps to foster the team mentality necessary to tackle them. They are designed to:
- Provide treasury and accounting staff with the tools they need to effectively manage a hedge program
- Give senior executives and board members insight into their company’s exposure profile
- Communicate what a hedge program can (and cannot) deliver to their financial statement
- Discuss structural limitations
- Evaluate strategies against objectives
