Eris Exchange (ERIS) and an institutional fixed income brokerage group at R.J. O’Brien & Associates (RJO), the nation’s oldest and largest independent futures brokerage and clearing firm, released an accounting case study outlining how ERIS Interest Rate Swap Futures can receive favorable hedge accounting treatment.

Qualifying for hedge accounting treatment allows institutional hedgers to confidently use ERIS Swap Futures as a replacement for OTC swaps. The study provides a concrete example of using ERIS as an eligible and effective hedge. Previously, ERIS had partnered with Reval to coauthor a white paper that lays out a framework for examining hedge accounting effectiveness of ERIS contracts.

Hedge accounting eligibility is a critical factor for many participants using OTC swaps, and this new case study illustrates hedge effectiveness testing of a corporate debt issuance, cash flow hedged with ERIS instead of an OTC swap. This objective third-party study illustrates that ERIS Swap Futures qualify for the same hedge accounting treatment as OTC swaps, offering end users an alternative to the traditional OTC swap market, which lacks best execution and remains opaque as well as hierarchical.

Hedgers may now take advantage of liquid and transparent markets in ERIS Swap Futures, while benefiting from the same hedge accounting treatment as traditional OTC swaps.

“For many of our institutional end users, getting internal accountants comfortable with the treatment of ERIS is a critical component in making the switch away from legacy OTC derivatives to a more efficient hedge alternative,” said Rob Powell, Director of the Fixed Income Group & Senior Vice President of RJO. “We are pleased to offer this case study with journal entries and sample designation letters to make sure our clients have all the requisite detail they need to implement ERIS contracts.”

Charles Brobst, Managing Partner at GFM Solutions, commented, “Accountants will be able to use this document as a demonstration of the viability of ERIS Interest Rate Swap Futures from a hedge accounting perspective, and therefore a possible replacement for an OTC swap. They will also be able to use this case study as a roadmap for the necessary hedge documentation and journal entries.”
