About Us

Hedgebook was formed in 2011 with a mission to provide a cost effective alternative to spreadsheets when managing financial instruments and derivatives.

Ever since, our team of financial experts and software developers have been working hard to create tools that make the lives of fellow finance professionals simpler. As pioneers of the Cloud we were one of the first in the world to offer an online derivative valuation solution. Easy to use, intuitive and affordable is our ethos in an increasingly regulated financial world. Hedgebook has been developed by experienced treasury practitioners who understand the complexities of the financial markets but who can present it in an easily understood format.

With Hedgebook we make recording, reporting and valuing FX forwards, options and interest rate swaps easy. But don’t just believe us, see what some of our clients have to say.

We are proudly New Zealand based but our clients are global and even though our technology is used by major accounting firms and fintech firms, Hedgebook is targeted at the SME market who are grappling with the complexities of financial instruments and are probably using spreadsheets to do it.
