INDONESIA IS A TOP EMERGING MARKET OPPORTUNITY FOR GLOBAL INVESTORS
Indonesia is Southeast Asia’s largest and most populous country. The Indonesian economy has steadily grown at over 4.7% every year since the Asian financial crisis of 1997-1998. This incredibly consistent growth has put Indonesia on track to be the world’s 4th largest economy by 2030¹.
IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON INDONESIA’S GROWTH
While the Covid-19 pandemic has begun to show impact on Indonesia’s economy, the country is still expected to fare at a decent growth of 4.8% according to Fitch². At the lower end, growth is predicted at 0.5% by IMF.
EXPECTED BOUNCE IN INDONESIA’S GROWTH POST COVID-19
According to the Center for International and Strategic Studies (CSIS), Indonesia is expected to be one of the countries that will have a tremendous bounce back up in 2021³ and could have a GDP growth rate of 8.2% as per IMF’s forecast.
Combined with Indonesia’s massive population of more than 260 million people and more importantly its growing middle-class, the conditions are suitable for investments in the country especially in mainstream residential real estate.

KEY RISKS AND MITIGATION MEASURES
This campaign is denominated in Indonesia Rupiah (IDR), and therefore impacts non-Indonesian Investors who have to bear FX risk should there be a depreciation in the IDR.
Mitigation Measure: There will be no exchange rate guarantee given or currency hedging done for investors. Instead, a higher projected ROI has been negotiated with the project company to account for exchange rate risks. The given projected ROI is the final returns investors should take into their consideration.
These housing units will be sold for Rp. 285,000,000. The project is classified as low-cost commercial housing which is in support of the government program in housing construction.
The price of these housing units is in accordance with the government regulations that aim to provide home ownerships for first-time buyers with low incomes. The main risk of this project is the possibility of delay in sales.
PT IRK (co-developer) has a good track record and experience in the sale of a variety of housing units, ranging from landed houses to high rise apartments.
Mitigation Measure: PT IRK has secured a captive market of 1,000 ready buyers from Tanah Abang traders who submitted a letter of intent of purchase.
The sale of the units is very feasible as projected from the location of the project and its modern home concept. Therefore, the exit strategy for financers is the sale of the first 283 units.
Unavoidable circumstances such as recession, political instability, or natural disasters may affect all of us. Indonesia has experienced socio-political stability for more than a decade, and this is expected to continue.
There are also regulatory risks that may affect the housing sector, such as stricter conditions imposed on home ownerships or changes in the financial regulations for bank disbursement policies.
This is however, highly unlikely, since in recent years the focus has been for the government to relax regulations and facilitate home ownership.
The spread and outbreak of COVID-19 has dominated world news in recent months. Uncertainties from the outbreak is likely to persist and at this point of time it is difficult to gauge when the Indonesian government will announce the successful containment of COVID-19.
However, business movement in Indonesia has almost returned to normal with the implementation of ‘New Normal Life’ regulations in all aspects.
Real estate business while at risk due to the impact of Covid-19 may benefit from increasing public awareness to own their own homes..
