Release 23.10 ABOR

divider enhancement 

Enhance Hedge Adjustment logic to be compatible with „Default booking date“ FAM equal to „Payment date“ under BilMoG regulation

SimCorp Dimension’s support for hedge accounting under the freezing method has been improved (note: the freezing method is applicable under German GAAP (HGB)).

Due to internal accounting and reporting requirements saving banks in Germany may perform accounting based on the trade date booking or payment date booking. Hedge accounting should be done as of trade date for any position. 

With this enhancement it is possible to properly calculate hedge accounting values and hedge effectiveness for positions where Financial Accounting Method “Default booking date” is equal to “Payment date”. 

A new field, namely “Start pricing date” was added to Hedge Relationship Manager form. This field contains the date based on which hedge adjustment values are calculated, for instance the trade date of the position.

Start pricing date is compatible only with Hedge adjustment method = “Freeze” and “Hedge risk free price adjustment method” = “Dollar offset – Retrospective (constant spread and curve)” configured at the Hedge Types

Enabled separate accounting and settlement for ETD derivatives: enable Nominal Matching for CFD

A nominal methods logic of handling some exchange traded derivatives instruments was extended to address CFD instrument type.

It assumes configuring the dedicated data for nominal framework which regulates how positions are processed for settlement purposes: applying average or tax lot logic. Before treatment for settlement purposes has been taken from accounting framework defined as CASH one.

As a result of new implementation market value calculations in the Collateral Manager, Asset Manager, Risk / Performance area can be done based on the nominal framework and are not derived from the accounting values.

You can use the Nominal Methods window to configure the profit/loss method for settlement. This setting specifies how positions are handled with an average or a tax lot-based logic. Values available in the "Profit/Loss method for settlement" correspond to all possible options under "Profit/Loss method" for instruments in question which were compatible with the CASH framework before.

If tax lot based Profit/Loss method for settlement setting is selected under Nominal Methods, than position is accounted per lots under Nominal framework. To view or to specify matching information for nominal framework at the transaction level the Transaction Match on Nominal Level sub-window was added. 

New logic can be configured at the Financial Accounting Principles via introducing the Nominal methods setup at the Nominal Method column instead of specifying the CASH framework column.

Following transactions are supported: dealer transactions, variation margin payments, special close-out, interest accrual and payments, stock loan fees accruals and payments, proceed payments, reallocations, maturity, CFD Roll Over.
