The solution will help Coca-Cola Amatil hedge the risks that stem from the group’s production and bottling activities across the Asia/Oceania region more efficiently, said SuperDerivatives.

This is extremely important as it means we are able to mark-to-market our hedging portfolio with independent rates, thus enabling us to meet the guidelines in IAS 39.’
