Reval, a provider of derivative risk management and hedge accounting solutions, has launched an education series in major global cities throughout Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.
Corporate treasury and accounting professionals interested in learning how to best manage and account for derivative risk can gain new insights from industry peers, Big 4 advisors, and Reval experts taking part in the new education series, which begins today in Zurich and continues in Perth on 18 March, Frankfurt and Chicago on 23 March, and San Francisco on 25 March.
The programme is designed as a series of professional development offerings set in various interactive learning environments such as regional breakfast roundtables, half-day seminars, and live webinars. Its aim is to engage attendees in the relevant issues and challenges of using derivatives properly to mitigate risk and comply with evolving hedge accounting regulations.
“Basically, we’re taking our expertise on the road to ensure that companies have an opportunity to learn first-hand from us and from others in the industry about what works, what doesn’t work, and why,” said Reval chief executive officer (CEO) and co-founder Jiro Okochi. “By joining with financial professionals from companies across various industries, and with our advisory partners, our goal is to ensure that the programmes we are offering are well-rounded, relevant and highly interactive.”
The Reval Education Series attracts corporate treasury and accounting partners such as the Association for Financial Professionals (AFP), Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT), and the International Association of Corporate Treasurers (China). The series is free to qualified registrants and provides opportunities for registrants to earn continuing professional education credits.
