Today’s financial, regulatory and accounting environments require a comprehensive and deep understanding of financial instruments in order to measure market risks across a wide spectrum of disciplines. The financial instruments market has developed remarkably during recent years, with the scope of transactions today estimated at $1.2 quadrillion, ten times the global GDP.
Following the financial crisis of 2008, authorities began to intensify regulation and updated various accounting standards. The impact of the amended accounting standards on companies’ financial statements is increasing, making the pricing and presentation of financial instruments highly challenging for companies.
Applying the appropriate treatment to these instruments and the revaluation thereof may significantly reduce the risk of errors and misstatements in financial statements and will greatly simplify the controls, which the company’s auditor is required to carry out.
