Derivatives are increasingly being used in financial markets throughout the world, and emerging markets (EM) are no exceptions. Even though the development stage of the corporate derivatives market in EMs still falls short of that in advanced economies, it has steadily grown into a reasonably active market over the last decade. EM corporates mainly use hedging operations to reduce their exchange rate exposure and therefore limit volatility until the real transaction takes place. The purpose of this seminar is to examine the use of derivatives by corporates and its implications for financial stability in EM economies.

Target Audience: The seminar is tailored for central bankers who are interested in understanding the use of derivatives and its implications for financial stability in emerging market economies. The lectures will consist of introducing the basics of derivatives and analyzing emerging market derivatives practices and their financial stability implications via most relevant case studies. Prior knowledge of intermediate financial market instruments is essential.

The aftermath of the global financial crisis was marked by a rise in capital flows from developed to developing world. These benign liquidity conditions made borrowing in foreign currency attractive and resulted in an accumulation of significant external debt in many emerging economies since 2010. This workshop will address the foreign currency debt problem of the non-financial corporate sector in emerging economies to account for spillovers to financial stability.

Target Audience: The workshop is designed for officials and economists from central banks and related policy institutions who are interested in monetary policy making in an economy with high FX debt and its financial stability implications for emerging economies. Participants will be expected to take part in the discussions and share their country experiences.
