The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), in conjunction with the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG), the European Federation of Financial Analysts Societies (EFFAS) and the Association Belge des Analystes Financiers (ABAF), invite you to participate in a joint outreach event on how accounting for macro hedging can improve analysis of banks and insurers. The event, which is aimed at investors and analysts, will take place in Brussels on Monday 7 July 2014 from 13:30 to 19:30.
This is an opportunity for investors, analysts and other users of financial statements to:
- learn from banking and insurance industry representatives who will explain macro hedging and the related accounting in their organisations;
- explore analysis of real life examples with Jean-Baptiste Bellon, Banking Analyst and Member of the EFRAG User Panel and Carsten Zielke, Insurance Analyst, Vice-Chairman of the EFRAG User Panel and former member of the EFRAG Technical Expert Group;
- discuss the IASB's proposals with IASB member Martin Edelmann; and
- discover EFRAG's preliminary position and provide input to the EFRAG Technical Expert Group's deliberations.

Other information about this project
On 17 April the IASB published the Discussion Paper (DP) Accounting for Dynamic Risk Management: a Portfolio Revaluation Approach to Macro Hedging. The objective of the DP is to explore how to better reflect entities' dynamic risk management activities in their financial statements.
We would like to understand whether the information that the portfolio revaluation approach would provide would help investors and analysts to better understand entities' dynamic risk management activities and the effects of those activities on entities' financial statements.
The comment letter deadline is 17 October 2014.
