Can someone provide (or point me to) a summary of back office processing nuances specific to FX trading? For example, I know that there are several FX-specific risks that must be managed. They include transaction risk, translation risk, and short- and long-term exposure risks. GAAP and IFRS have published guidelines for fund and tax accounting for FX instruments. What other FX-specific nuanced processing challenges exist within the various back office functions including pricing, risk management, fund and tax accounting, clearance, settlement, custody, cash management, collateral management, and financial reporting?
