                            There will be winners and losers in this rapidly changing environment. We see areas where
                            Indonesia banks need to take more action – clarity of strategy, a greater focus on customer
                            centricity, driving strategies through to execution, and investing further in systems and risk
                            management to move from a moderate to high level of preparedness.

                            We thank all of our respondents to our 2018 survey and trust it will be a helpful catalyst to
                            stimulating dialogue for the betterment of Indonesia banks and the industry as a whole.

           some respondents, statistically it was            still the case for those expecting lower levels
           insignificant. We believe this is driven by       of growth – in fact, 65% of respondents who

           was below expectations for many bankers,          actually also expected NPLs to decrease in
           and therefore although the survey result is       2018.

           higher among smaller banks, with 80%              influenced by state-owned banks who are
           expecting growth in excess of 10% compared        bullish on loan growth and positive on NPL
