Hedging Made Easy

What does it take to start a hedge program? How do I go about making an existing program better? Who needs to be involved in ensuring an effective program?

In this session, a professional from Hedge Trackers team of expert derivative accountants will discuss how a company takes on a new hedge program … and how existing programs can be improved. During this session, Hedge Trackers will cover various risk classes and topics around hedging and implementing hedge programs, as well as lessons learned, clearing roadblocks and performance management.

Participant takeaways include how to identify exposures, selecting the right instrument for your hedge objective and how to effectively communicate hedge results to management.

Helen Kane is founder and President of Hedge Trackers, LLC a firm dedicated to supporting corporations that protect margin with the judicious use of derivatives and the application of special hedge accounting under ASC815. Hedge Trackers has been implementing and supporting corporate hedge programs with consulting, technology, training and outsourcing since 2000. 

Prior to founding Hedge Trackers, Helen was implementing hedge programs and supporting the related currency accounting for Deloitte clients in the San Jose office.  She was first introduced to currency risk management at a Silicon Valley manufacturing company where she served as the International Treasury Manager before joining Deloitte.

Bob Stark
VP of Strategy, Kyriba

3:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Globalizing Your Treasury Operations

The days of being a purely domestic enterprise with exclusively American suppliers and only American customers are no longer a reality for most businesses. As a result, there are significant pressures on treasury teams to align to the global reach of the entire business, and progress from supporting the business to helping lead it internationally.

Bob Stark is responsible for global product strategy and market development at Kyriba. Bob is a 18-year veteran in the treasury technology industry having served in multiple roles at Wall Street Systems, Thomson Reuters, and Selkirk Financial Technologies including product management and strategy. Bob is a regular speaker at treasury conferences including AFP National, Sibos, and regional AFP events. He holds a BBA in finance and marketing from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver.
