Formatted abstract The aim of this study is to develop hypotheses on discretionary disclosure of derivative financial instruments. It looks at the period before the issuance of AAS 33/ AASB 1033 Presentation and Disclosure of Financial Instruments in December 1996, with particular reference to the Exposure Draft (ED) 65.

This study focuses on the possible factors which influence a firm in its decision to voluntarily disclose its use of derivative financial instruments. This study adopts the three-dimensional model developed by Ullmann as a means of developing the hypotheses.

Based on the hypotheses, it is expected that the level of voluntary disclosure will increase with the increased in: (1) the dispersion of the corporate ownership, (2) the pressure from its investors which have direct economic impact, (3) the level of economic growth and (4) the size of the firms.
