"Huge losses have been incurred by several companies in India and abroad on derivatives used for “hedging” interest rate and currency exposures, in the recent past. This has exposed a major weakness: lack of understanding of derivatives and their usage. There has been an acute lack of clarity even among professionals on understanding what constitutes hedging, and the difference between risk reduction and cost reduction. The issue of hedge effectiveness, especially with the mandatory use of Accounting Standard 30 and disclosure norms from 2011 onwards, becomes critical for company auditors as well. In this context, Currency Exposures and Derivatives: Risk, Hedging, Speculation and Accounting—A Corporate Treasurer’s Handbook, a distillate of the author’s rich experience in advising companies, banks and teaching B school students and executives, comes as a topical and much needed offering for corporate treasurers, chartered accountants, auditors, bankers, and students and faculty of management schools. A companion volume to his book Cash and Derivatives Markets in Foreign Exchange, this book covers: · Types of currency exposures and their effects on the bottom-line of businesses · Exchange rate movements · Risk management issues and policies for corporate treasuries · Use and misuse of derivatives · Provisions of AS 11, AS 16 and AS 30 related to the accounting issues and the rules for establishing hedge effectiveness “The two books are undoubtedly a boon, to the economists who seek to understand the real world, the analysts who want to be objective, the practitioners in financial markets who want to benefit, the students who want to learn, and the policy makers who are willing to learn.” Padma Vibhushan Dr Y Venugopal Reddy Former Governor, RBI (From the Foreword) “To be able to explain complex ideas in simple words, to be of relevance to the policy-makers, professionals and neophytes alike, and to continue to hold the reader’s interest...are extremely rare skills. Mr. Rajwade possesses these skills...All readers will find something useful from the wide range of topics that he has covered with consummate ease.” Partho Datta Former Finance Director, Murugappa Group “...The complex subject of foreign currency risk management and derivatives has been dealt with... lucidly and brilliantly...a must read for all Board members, Audit Committee members and advisors who have to deal with Risk and Volatility.” Shailesh V Haribhakti Chairman, BDO Haribhakti Consulting Pvt. Ltd. “...An excellent reference guide for both the initiated as also the uninitiated...” G Padmanabhan Chief General Manager, Department of Payment and Settlement Systems, RBI (In his personal capacity) “...A timely and authoritative guide to the practical side of risk management—a book every treasury manager in India should read and remember.” Sudhir Joshi Former Head, Treasury, HDFC Bank"
