Development of multifinance industry in Indonesia.

Current Issue

The country's multifinance industry has grown fast over the past years. The market of the industry, however, is dominated by consumer finance industry (financing the purchases of cars and motorcycles cycles). Consumer finance accounts for 90% of the total market value of multifinance industry. Factoring, is not yet popular in the country having a small share of the multifinance market.

Based on data from Bank Indonesia (BI) in 2013 total value of financing reached Rp 348 trillion or an increase of 14.9% from Rp302.8 trillion in the previous year. Consumer finance alone accounted for 64% or Rp 222.7 trillion and leasing for 34.1% or Rp 118.7 trillion of the total value of the multifinance market in 2013. Expansion of multifinance industry followed the trend of the country's economic growth, which is driven mainly by the consumption sector. The assets of multifinance industry has grown rapidly. The total assets of multifinance industry was recorded at Rp 398.9 trillion by the end of 2013, up 16.7% from Rp 341.8 trillion a year earlier.

Currently, financing business contributes greatly to sales of automotive products and heavy equipment in the country. Almost 90% of purchase of automotive products are financed with credit. In 2014, car sales are predicted to reach 1.25 million units and motorcycles cycle sales 7.7 million units. According to the Indonesian Association of Finance companies (APPI) new car and motorcycle purchases with credits in 2014 are predicted to reach Rp 240 trillion in value.

Meanwhile, the Financial Service Authority (OJK) has cancelled and suspended the licenses of a number of multifinance companies in the past two years for violation of regulations and for failing to meet the requirements. Among the companies were PT Patra Multifinance, PT Metro Finance, PT Semesta Citra Dana, PT Siantar Top Multifinance, PT Cahyagold Prasetya Finance, PT Tata Internasional Multifinance and PT Diamon Jaya Multifinance. In 2013 a number of new companies were licensed including PT Takari Kokoh Sejahtera, PT Indonesia Internasional Finance and PT Karunia Multi Finance.

Multifinance Products and Services

Multifinance industry in Indonesia is under the supervision of the OJK.

Multifinance industry includes leasing, factoring and consumer finance.


Leasing business involves financing companies offering capital goods to lessee that will use and will pay for the goods in a certain period. At the end of the period, the lessee could buy the goods or extend the leasing contract for the goods based on the remaining value of the goods. Agreed upon by the lessor and the lessee


Factoring companies offer to buy or take over short term claims of other companies from domestic or international trade under a certain price.

Consumer finance (consumer credits)

Consumer finance companies offer to finance the procurement or purchases of consumer goods to be repaid by installments.

Development of Multifinance Companies

Number of companies

The number of multifinance companies declined sharply since 2007 after the government suspended many of them for failing to meet their obligations such as in minimum capital requirement and in submitting financial report regularly.

In addition, there were a number of multifinance companies have been combined in business merger, and some have changed business and there were also some which have been out of business or bankrupt. Financially small companies are in difficulty in seeking financial support from banks as banks were not easily to offer funds for less competitive companies.

Currently the government is more selective in issuing multifinance business license Based on the regulation of the finance minister No. 84/ 2006 on Finance companies, a multifinance company is required to have at least Rp100 billion in paid up capital. The regulation is aimed at preventing trade in business license in the financing service industry.

Currently, there are 202 multifinance companies operating in the country based on record by May, 2014.

Multifinance Industry by Lines of Business

Multifinance industry is dominated by consumer finance with 112 companies or 55.4% of the total number of companies operating in multifinance industry. The second largest number is leasing company with 66 companies (32.7%), followed by factoring totaling 24 companies (11.9%).

Among the multifinance companies, there are three companies operating in more than two business sectors, some of them in three sectors such as Buana Finance, which offer leasing, consumer finance and factoring services.

Among big multifinance companies are PT. Federal International Finance, and PT. Adira Dinamika Multifinance.

Revocation of License of a Number of Companies

Since 2009, the finance ministry has been selective in licensing multifinance companies. A number of finance companies failing to comply with the regulation of the Finance Minister No. 84/2006 on financing business, have their license suspended or revoked.

With the implementation of the ministerial regulation, many finance companies have been closed mainly on failure to meet the minimum capital requirement. Multifinance companies with the legal status of Limited Corporation (PT), are required to have a paid up capital of Rp100 billion. The paid up capital is Rp50 billion for one in the status of cooperative.

The capital has to be readjusted in the event of change in the shareholders. The requirement is obviously too difficult for investors that there are not many new investors interested in the business. Previously the minimum capital requirement was only Rp10 billion for PT and Rp5 billion for a cooperative.

Second, in addition to ministerial license, a multifinance company also need to have an equity capital of more than 50% of the paid up capital.

Interest, however, remains strong in multifinance business with the improvement in the country's economic condition driven mainly by the consumption sector.

Many new finance companies have come on line. After ban on license for new companies was lifted in 2006, the number of multifinance companies has increased. However, many of the newly licensed companies failed to start operation immediately.

In 2012, among the finance companies having their license revoked included PT Patra Multifinance, PT Metro Finance and PT Semesta Citra Dana. The main reasons is failure to meet the minimum capital requirement.

In 2013 through the middle of 2014, the Financial Service Authority (OJK) cancelled the business license of a number of finance companies including PT Cahyagold Prasetya Finance, PT Tata Internasional Multifinance, PT Siantar Top Multifinance and PT Diamon Jaya Multifinance.

By the end of April, 2014, PT Siantar Top Multi Finance which started operation in 2002, was banned from resuming its business in the financial sector under a decision of the OJK No. KEP-24/D.05/2014 per 25 March 2014.

PT Siantar Top Multi Finance, therefore, changed its business line with a new name PT Siantar Top Anugerah Sejahtera.

New License

While revoking license, the regulator also offers and issues new license. In 2013, there were additional license issued by the regulator, including for PT Takari Kokoh Sejahtera, PT Indonesia Internasional Finance and PT Karunia Multi Finance.

PT Takari Kokoh Sejahtera proposed for new license on 8 April 2013, and PT Indonesia International Finance submitted a similar proposal on 1 October 2012.

PT Takari Kokoh Sejahtera is an affiliate of Mitsubishi UFJ Lease & Finance, a multifinance company.

With financially powerful principals abroad, joint venture companies have less problem financially to support their operations in the country. Among the joint venture companies have powerful principals in Japan such as PT. Mitsubishi UFJ Lease & Finance and PT. Toyota Astra Finance.

Owners of Multifinance Companies

Most of the multifinance companies are owned by banks, company groups, brand holding sole agent (ATPM) in automotive sector and foreign principals. Powerful finance companies are all affiliated to banks or car makers and ATPM.

ATPM companies cooperate with finance companies to expand distribution and sales of their automotive products. A number of ATPMs have even established their own multifinance companies. The Astra Group, the country's largest automotive company group, as a group of ATPMs for Toyota, Daihatsu and Isuzu cars and Honda motorcycles, has established Astra Sedaya Finance, Toyota Astra Finance for car financing, and Federal International Finance for motorcycle financing.

Marketing Strategy and Competition

Competition among finance companies is in services, interest rates, credit terms, number of dealers, promotion, etc. The services and interest rates have to be competitive, credit term must be flexible and number of dealers must be as many as possible and prizes need to be offered in promotion to attract consumers, etc.

In facing competition, finance companies need to have various strategies such as :

* Improvement of services for customers and potential customers. Multifinance companies offer facilities in installments such as through ATMs, guarantee for the security of certificate of ownership of motor vehicles (BPKB), facility to obtain motor vehicle license (STNK), quick service for customers and dealers.

* Expanding distribution networks

By opening branches as many as possible in large and small cities to be close to and facilitate customers. Most of the customers of finance companies are middle income and low income people.

* Customer relationship

Finance companies have to pay attention to customer relationship. Special prices are offered for old customers seeking new credits..

* Skip installment Package

This is a new breakthrough launched by ACC not yet ever offered by competitors. ACC is the first to offer skip installment package under which consumers are freed from paying installment in certain months such as during Idol Fire, Christmas and new academic years. Progressive installment is a system in which first installments are smaller than normal installment, digressive installment is one under which consumers are to pay less amount of installment every six months to prevent consumers from risks at the end of the installment contract and balloon payment is a system under which early installment is smaller than normal installment and remaining debt would be paid at the final installment. * *

* Customer to customer financing

Astra Credit Company (ACC) has expanded market by adopting the Customer to Customer Financing, which is a financing facility of ACC that helps in buying second hand motor vehicles from some individuals. The documents could be easier secured with approval would be given generally in less than 8 hours. More than 80% of consumers of Astra automotive products use credit from ACC.

Cooperation With Dealers

Multifinance companies need to cooperate with car or motorcycle dealers to guarantee supply of goods to be offered to customers wanting to buy cars or motorcycle with credits.

* Developing networks with banks

In order to facilitate payments of installments by customers, multifinance companies cooperate with banks that customers could make payment through the banks' ATM.

* Reducing interest rate

Multifinance companies would lower their interest rates charged on their customers if bank interest rate is cut lowered. Lower interest rate would draw customers and expand the market.

Competition between multifinance industry and banking industry will put pressure on financing business. Banks lately are more aggressive in expanding their business operation to financing in the car market so far the captive market for multifinance companies. A number of banks have offered cars credits such as Bank Mandiri, Bank BCA and Bank Danamon.

Sources of Fund

Multifinance industry still need capital support from financiers including banks. In the past two years, funds received by multifinance industry has increased 7% per year. In 2012, multifinance industry received a loan of Rp597.8 trillion, up to Rp639.9 trillion in 2013.

Sources of funds for finance companies include banks, non bank loans, bonds, private placement and other sources.

Bank Loans

Loans from local and foreign banks have continued to increase to reach Rp 227.8 trillion in 2013 from Rp211.1 trillion in 2012. Banks account for 35.6% of the total funds from all fund sources in 2013.

In 2013, domestic bank loans totaled Rp136.4 trillion or 21.3% of the total loans used by multifinance companies and foreign loans accounted for 14.3% or Rp91.4 trillion with other loans accounting for the rest.

Joint venture finance companies generally use foreign loans from their principals, financial agencies affiliated in the venture. Foreign joint ventures are the largest users of foreign loans.

Joint Financing

Multifinance companies finance their operation with joint financing or non joint financing. In joint financing a multifinance company has bank partners. Companies operating with non joint financing could strengthen their capital through issuance of bonds or syndicated loans.

Lately, banks are more aggressive in seeking cooperation with multifinance companies in channeling out consumer credits especially in the form of car and motorcycle credits. The cooperation scheme is known as joint financing or channeling. Under the scheme banks channel out their car or motorcycle credit through finance companies. Generally banks provide 90% of the fund with the multifinance company putting up the remaining 10%.

Consumers prefer to deal with multifinance companies than with banks as multifinance companies generally offer simpler procedure. Banks, therefore, need partnership with finance companies. Even currently many banks, especially ones oriented to expansion of consumer credits, seek to acquire multifinance companies. Generally banks are interested in acquiring finance companies having assets between Rp500 billion and Rp1 trillion. Multifinance companies having assets of more than Rp1 trillion would not need bank support as they generally have financially powerful shareholders.

Currently many banks consider it safer to increase consumer credits than corporate credit as there is less risk of non performing loan (NPL). A number of banks such as Bank Mandiri, Bank Danamon and BCA have succeeded in acquiring and expanding multifinance companies.

So far, multifinance companies have cooperated with banks under joint financing on in syndicated loans. BCA Finance finances its operation with 70% of fund needed from its parent company BCA and from Bank Mandiri.

FIF finances its operation with bank fund that makes up 65% of the fund needed under joint financing scheme. The rest would be covered with bond fund or loan. FIF has cooperated with 12 banks including Bank Permata, Bank Mega, Bank Mandiri and NISP. Under joint financing, Bank Permata provided 12% of the fund needed.

A multifinance company could also have joint financing scheme with other multifinance companies. APPI said syndication among finance companies have ever been used by 10 companies, but the scheme is more cost efficient.


Funding with bond fund has increased from year to year. In 2013 bonds issued by multifinance companies reached Rp50.1 trillion up 14.6% from Rp43.7 trillion in the previous year.

Some of the multifinance companies have been aggressive in seeking to draw public fund through the sales of bonds. In 2013, a number of multifinance companies issued bonds such as BCA Finance, Adira Dinamika Multi Finace TBk, Astra Sedaya Finance, Artha Prima Finance, and Bima Multi Finace.

In 2014, multifinance companies have issued bonds such as BII Finance Centre, CIMB Niaga auto Finence, BFI Finance Indonesia Tbk, Mandiri Tunas Finance, Wahana Ottomitra Multiartha and Mandala Multifinance Tbk.

--Private placement is a form of debt agreement or medium term note (MTN) that could serve as an alternative source of fund in various real sectors including housing credits (KPR). With the alternative source of fund, finance companies could offer a lower price for the people.

* Capital participation

The capital market and finance agencies watchdog (Bapepam-LK) is now more selective in licensing multifinance business. Based on the regulation of the Finance Minister (PMK) No. 84/ 2006 on finance companies, the pair up capital for a multifinance company is at least Rp100 billion to prevent license from being traded.

Conclusion and Prospects

In general multifinance industry in 2013 grew fairly strong and was still dominated by consumer finance service. Total value of financing in 2013 was Rp 348 trillion, up from Rp302 trillion in 2012. In 2013, consumer finance accounted for 64% or Rp 222.7 trillion of the total market value of multifinance industry. Financing for the automotive sector contributed around 80% to the total value of consumer finance, with the rest financing for electronic goods. Leasing accounted for Rp118.7 trillion (34.1%) and factoring for Rp 6.6 trillion (1.9%).

With the increase in the BI rate now 7.5%, business in multifinance industry is under heavier pressure as finance companies have to adjust their interest rate on their credit for their consumers. Averagely a finance companies have raised their interest rate by 1-2 percentage points for motor vehicle credits. The increase in interest rate is predicted to result in a decline in the growth of income of multifinance companies to 9% in 2014 from 14% in 2013.

In 2014, consumer finance is expected to continue to dominate the market of multifinance business mainly in financing the purchases of cars and motorcycles. According to the Indonesian Association of Motorcycles Industry (AISI), sales of motorcycles in 2014 is predicted to rise to 7.7 million units, and the Association of Motor Vehicles Industry (Gaikindo) said car sales in 2014 would also increase to a new peak at 1.25 million units. The increase in sales of motor vehicles would push up demand for credits as around 90% of purchases of motor vehicles in the country are with credits.

Leasing service is predicted to continue to grow with growing demand for heavy equipment such as tractors, excavators, and loaders. Heavy equipment is needed mainly in coal mining and general mining (nickel and iron ore mining) and oil palm plantations.

With expected annual growth of 9%-12%, total financing in the next five years is predicted to reach Rp379 trillion in 2014 and Rp 576 trillion in 2018. Car and motorcycle credits would contribute mainly to the total credits of finance companies.
