ISDA response to FASB on Derivatives and Hedging

On January 14, ISDA responded to the Financial Accounting Standard Board’s (FASB) Consultation on the Proposed Accounting Standards Update (ASU) Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815). ISDA supports the FASB’s efforts to clarify and improve the US generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) applicable to hedging activities. While the FASB’s efforts to provide clarification on certain matters in the proposed ASU is appreciated, ISDA  also encourages the FASB to add a phase-two targeted hedge accounting improvements project to its agenda. Such a project could address certain practice issues and other matters that remain unresolved or have arisen since the issuance of ASU 2017-12, which would be more than technical corrections.
