Finance Function Transformation

Edify's view on the Myanmar market 

Myanmar today is a country undergoing rapid change, and there is a solid determination among its people and leaders to help the country establish an important place at the global political and economic table. Occupying a strategic position at the crossroads of India, China and Thailand the economic growth has remained above 5% for more than 25 years, supported by robust natural resources, steady Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), rising incomes and private consumption and rapid expansion of the industrial and services sectors.

Higher foreign investments and joint ventures between foreign business partners and their local counterparts has increased the pressure on the financial reporting environment, requiring it to align with the more complex international standards, and demanding a more holistic approach by Myanmar companies. Consequently, the roles and responsibilities of the Chief Financial Officer are facing a tremendous change. CFO’s will have to create an effective, efficient and agile finance function, through transformational finance agendas, and, more importantly, by making the finance function a ‘world class’ finance business partner.

Problem Statement


Your businesses have expanded to a secure, mature, organisation, either with or without a CFO as leader in the Finance Department. Your aim is to create the finance function as a business partner to the operation for the CEO and Board of the Comapny.

We have identified the following pain points the managment wants to solve:

  • The reliability of financial data in management reports.

  • The need to improve procedures/SOP's for all finance processes.

  • The lack of a Finance Leader to offer advice and solid performance statistics. 

  • The need of a finance function structure and comprehensive finance KPI.

Our proposed scope of work


We will assist you in reviewing your current finance operations and develop recommendations to solve these pain points. Hence, our scope encompasses two options; CFO Advisory Services (retainer) or Finance Function Transformation.
