By Verdict Staff Share Article Indonesian lender Bank Central Asia (BCA) is reportedly planning to invest $200m into its one-month-old digital unit Blu to tackle competition from big tech companies. BCA, which is the country’s biggest lender by market value, will mobilise the funds to help Blu expand its footprint in the country ahead of an initial public offering (IPO) in two years, BCA president director Jahja Setiaatmadja told Bloomberg in an interview. BCA plans to increase Blu’s capital four-fold from $69.37m to $278m, which currently has around 110,000 customers. BCA’s announcement comes shortly after the country’s Financial Services Authority (OJK) revised banking regulations to encourage lenders to speed up digital transformation.

Sea Group, which recently received a digital banking license in Singapore, acquired Indonesian lender Bank Kesejahteraan Ekonomi (Bank BKE) in February this year. Sea Group plans to transform Bank BKE into a digital entity. The number of digital lenders in the Philippines will be capped at seven for the next three years.
