Hedge Accounting

Hedge Accounting is intended to reflect the results of hedging activities, in the financial statements. One of the main goals of hedge accounting is to minimize the P&L volatility resulting from changes that affect the value of the hedging financial derivatives.

In "regular" accounting, the income and expenses associated with the hedged item and the hedging instrument are not measured in the same way. In theory, hedge accounting is designed to match the recognition of income and expenses between the hedged item and the hedging instrument.
