As a welcome gift, we will also provide the two in-depth industry reports to the attendees.

  • MW Indonesian FinTech Report​ (worth US$2499)
  • Exclusive Indonesian AFTECH Customer Report

Highlights of the report: 

  • Indonesia’s fintech industry is very competitive but the potential is still highly unrealised
  • P2P lending and payments are the leading verticals comprising 69% of the Fintech landscape
  • High unbanked population (51%) and a large number of underserved SMEs are credit constrained; finance gap of $77.2 billion serves as a potential for fintech to step in
  • Investments and consolidations expected to happen in the highly fragmented market
  • Investors and startups need to account for moderate to high risks due to volatile and increasingly strict regulatory environment as well as weakened Rupiah
  • Renewed confidence in the Indonesian economy and credit needs after the Jokowi re-election
