Financial risk management is currently subject to much debate, especially the accounting for derivative products, and a number of commentators are objecting to the introduction of International Accounting Standard IAS 39 for Derivatives that will be in force by January 2005 for all EU companies. The topic of hedge accounting and the treatment of fair values may have a significant impact on many companies reported profits, and the volatility of earnings is likely to increase. Uniquely this monograph focuses on interest rate risk management. Most studies of corporate risk management have typically dwelt on the topic of management of exchange rate risk, with interest rate risk management being neglected. The book’s findings examine the views of UK corporate treasurers who are usually involved in the risk management strategies of their organisation and who have responsibility for implementing those strategies in practice. * The research is the first comprehensive UK study on this area * Relevant to the imminent arrival of IAS 39, the International Accounting Standard for Derivatives that will be in force by January 2005 for all EU companies. * The findings of the book have implications for government policy and regulators

Bobby just sits there waiting and watching as Drake continues to tease the two girls, making them struggle more and more as their anger peaks and their faces are so red they look like a couple of over inflated balloons about to pop. They are so infuriated that they don't even notice that John and Rob have stepped the two of them into a small wading pool in front of Drake. It is then when the two girls are ready to explode with anger, that with one lightning fast movement, Drake jumps to his feet and severs both of their heads cleanly off with a machete he had next to his couch. Their smooth bodies just hang their motionless in space for an instant, like headless mannequins on a rack waiting to be dressed and placed in a display window
