Financial Complexity

Partner and Emerging Markets

Diageo Partner and Emerging Markets is part of a dual listed (London and New York) global organisation operating within a complex local environment. Financial complexity is driven through the reporting, planning and forecasting requirements of our global shareholder along with ensuring compliance with local legislations of countries we operate. In addition, compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley codes of good practice is required due the Diageo listing on the NYSE.

The complexity of our markets, with multiple customer segments and routes to market, drives complexity in understanding the creation of value from Retail Selling Price through the P&L. We consistently work to identify and maximise opportunities across the value chain through pricing and promotional strategy across our customer base.

The volatility of the African Partner and Emerging Markets macro-economic environment drives a level of complexity when managing global targets, local input costs and product imports. Cost drivers such as inflation and global vs local exchange rates impact our cost base strongly and need to be managed closely.
