All derivatives are booked at real value through profit and loss. Gains are carried as assets and losses as liabilities in the case of all interest rate derivatives. This applies both to derivatives used, and to derivatives not used, for hedge purposes. The Bank does not employ cash flow hedging.
The contract amount shows absolute values for all contracts.
For a description of counterparty risk and market risk, see note 6 on risk factors.
