Hedge accounting within IAS39

This work proposes an accounting calculation scheme for hedging swaps based on the requirements listed under International Accounting Statement (IAS) 39. In particular we developed a procedure that assists risk managers in the identification of the hedging efficiency between a group of loans (or bonds) and swaps held in a bank portfolio qualifying for hedge accounting.
The proposed scheme aims at associating to any given swap of the bank portfolio, a certain collection of loans (or bonds) whose risk exposures offset each other. The final result is the construction of a number of hedges that are effective according to IAS 39.
