Event Details

Transforming the world that we share

Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world, with a population estimated at 269 million in 2019. Indonesia’s national motto, ‘Unity in Diversity’ is a reference to its heterogeneous religious, cultural and ethnic traditions. The size and scope of the philanthropic sector reflects the country’s changing geographic and economic landscape.

The largest economy in Southeast Asia, Indonesia has charted impressive economic growth since overcoming the Asian financial crisis of the late 1990s. The country’s gross domestic product (GDP) per capita has steadily risen, from $807 in the year 2000 to $3,877 in 2018.

Along with GDP growth, the wealth of high-net-worth individuals (HNWIs) in Indonesia recorded the highest increasement in the region in 2016, up 14.3% to $184 billion. Indonesia is also the most mature market for impact investing in Southeast Asia, despite the fact that the high net worth community, concerned about economic risks at home, is inclined to diversify investments outside their home markets. The country reached that status with Private Impact Investors (PIIs) deploying $148.8 million across 58 deals over the past decade and with Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) being consistently active in Indonesia, cumulatively deploying more than $3.6 billion in impact capital through 67 deals.

Yet Indonesia faces several challenges. Most domestic capital has concentrated in mainstream private equity, sovereign debt, or philanthropy, very few investors in Indonesia have a full-time local presence, which limited interactions with potential investees. Furthermore, except for one disclosed deal, there are no records of exits from impact investments in Indonesia. Data on returns remain limited.

Wealth & Society Indonesia 2019 will encourage action-oriented conversations with a wide range of high-profile senior executives, asset management companies, influential investors, sovereign wealth fund directors, philanthropists and other industry professionals to showcase and recognise the positive impacts that they have been creating in society. We will also share case studies on learning how to use your wealth and be relevant to society. It will help us start thinking of where wealth will be generated and how we can participate, for the benefit of mankind and our shared future. A platform created to gather a high-level audience of leaders in business, government, technology, philanthropy and academia from around the world.

  • Property Development in Indonesia: Building a Sustainable City
  • The introduction of technology and innovations in the property development industry
  • How financial technology are disrupting giving
  • Auditing your impact investing portfolio
  • Investible Ideas for a Sustainable Society

Roundtable Dialogue on “The future of Impact Investment in Indonesia”

Indonesia is a strong advocate of the Sustainable Development Goals and is committed to achieving them and improving livelihoods for the poorest communities. There is a definite move in Indonesia to give back to society due to the limited resources available to the poor. The ultra-wealthy are increasingly interested in leaving a legacy and providing more for society at large through philanthropic activities, which can be undertaken with higher levels of confidence.

Private wealth is increasingly being deployed in areas that have been identified under the United Nation’s sustainable development goals. Be it in environment, education, healthcare, or social change, there are opportunities for investors to have the best of both worlds – create social impact and make good financial returns.

According to Credit Suisse Global Wealth Report 2015, Indonesia has a higher expected growth in wealth population than Singapore and Hong Kong, with 54% increment of the number of HNWI by 2020.

With the recent increase in number of HNWI in Indonesia the wealth sector is facing new opportunities as well as challenges at the same time

In this roundtable we will discuss the current wealth management landscape challenges and perspectives for the near future as well as Indonesia’s HNWI seeking impact investing and philanthropy.

  • The introduction of technology and innovations in the property development industry
  • Philanthropic innovation in business models and capital efficiency strategies
  • Policies and regulations shaping the ecosystem for a positive property development
  • Making a positive environmental impact in Indonesia
  • Creative investment vehicles
  • Driving ESG investment in Indonesia
  • Building impact investing portfolio
  • How to consider risk when developing an impact investing strategy for your business
  • Understanding the sensitivities and nuances of conducting impact investments in different cultural contexts
  • Identify and execute deals that yield financial, social and environmental returns
  • Islamic funds for sustainable investment assets
  • Gender-lens investing: Investing in women
  • Investible ideas for a sustainable society
  • Coordinating and partnerships making differences in society
