Discover what ION can do for you
What is an accounting and hedge accounting solution?
With more regulatory requirements than ever before, it’s a challenge to understand how new and changing rules impact financial operations. Accounting solutions allow teams to create journal entries per local or international GAAPs (IAS, IFRS, FAS) for all instruments and cashflows. Then, you can send that centralized data downstream to ERP systems and analyze and report on corresponding GL account balances. Dedicated hedge accounting tools enable efficient execution of hedge accounting strategies through designation, prospective, and retrospective effectiveness testing and regression analysis.
