Simplified Investment Processes

Kyriba offers a step-by-step workflow to define the hedge for accounting purposes, including:
• Linking Exposure and Derivative
• Type of Hedge Type
• Exposures being hedged
• Effectiveness Testing Methods
• Assessment Frequency
• Regulatory Standards

Upload Documentation

Kyriba supports the drag and drop upload of hedge documentation to increase efficiency, reduce the risk of error, and simplify audit compliance by having all hedging documentation in a central repository. This is especially useful for organizations with 10, 20 or 100-page hedging policy documents.


Kyriba automates the mark-to-market process to calculate valuations for all derivatives. Kyriba’s valuation engine allows clients to run valuations across their entire portfolio whenever needed during the month. Valuations use market rates and curves from Kyriba’s Market Data service, while market information can also be accessed from third-party platforms. Kyriba’s audit logs and information storage offer complete transparency to the valuation process.

Derivative Accounting

Kyriba developed a powerful accounting engine embedded within our solution to generate structured accounting entries, a full audit trail and financial controls, as well as more flexibility to support local GAAP requirements without customization. If you don’t elect to pursue hedge accounting, Kyriba’s integrated accounting engine will calculate and journalize the change in fair value to your income statement accounts.

Effectiveness Testing

If you pursue hedge accounting, Kyriba supports multiple methodologies for both prospective and retrospective testing, including regression and statistical tests. Clients determine their assessment methods, tolerances, and frequencies so that Kyriba can automate the process.

Hedge Accounting

The results of effectiveness testing will determine the appropriate gains and losses to be deferred to either balance sheet accounts (e.g. OCI or CTA) and to P&L accounts. Kyriba’s accounting engine automatically creates the accounting entries with straight through process to the general ledger with the appropriate controls in place.

De-designation Events

Kyriba fully supports de-designation events, including OCI reclassification, change in accounting treatment for dual purpose hedges, and early de-designation of hedging relationships.
