Optimisation of derivatives and other financial products

View this page in: Español

Now is the time

The current situation provides a unique opportunity to optimise the financing of your company, especially if you are considering using derivatives or issuing complex financial instruments such as convertible debentures, preference shares or structured bonds.

If you want to make the most of these financial products, now that lending activity is being resumed and we are seeing a change in interest rate trends, all you have to do is ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are you familiar with these instruments in their full complexity?
  • Have you calculated the monetary and accounting impact that the contracting of them would have?
  • Do you have at your disposal the applications required to evaluate the various alternatives available?
  • Do you have at your disposal professionals entirely devoted to the analysis of all these issues?
  • Can you distinguish between the different products which qualify for hedge accounting? Do you know how to carry out effectiveness tests?
  • Can you count on receiving independent and neutral advice?

The answer to these questions is of key importance, since success in the contracting of favourable financial terms for your company will depend not only on its solvency and liquidity but also on the management of all the different variables which come into play.
