With this business function, you can use various new functions in SAP Treasury and Risk Management.

    • In the new Exposure Management 2.0 area, you can create currency and commodity positions on which both Hedge Accounting for Exposures and the analyzers are based. Open commodity items in Exposure Management can be hedged in Hedge Accounting for Exposures using commodity futures transactions (commodity futures, options on commodity futures, and commodity forwards) from the Transaction Manager. For the operative exposure items, you can run analyses for net present value and value at risk in the Market Risk Analyzer.

      • Gradient of the regression lines

      • Axis intercept of the regression lines

      • Coefficient of determination R²

      • t-Test

      • F-Test

  • The life cycle of forward securities transactions, comprising rollover, advance maturity, dividend adjustment, cash settlement, or physical delivery, can be continually mapped in the Transaction Manager, and integrated in position management, accounting, and risk management. You can map forward securities transactions to the following product categories:

    • Stocks (010)

    • Investment certificates (020)

    • Bonds (040)

    • Investment (160)

These are then evaluated with regard to the market risk.
