Indonesia's financial assets are relatively small, at the equivalent of an estimated 111% of GDP in 2013, but the country's banks are healthy and will look to expand in the forecast period.

The government has a large presence in the banking sector-a legacy of the bail-outs and takeovers required in the wake of the 1997-98 Asian financial crisis. It will continue its efforts to return banks to private ownership.

Foreign banks are expected to expand their involvement in Indonesia, despite tighter restrictions on the ownership of local lenders. In mid-2012 Bank Indonesia (BI, the central bank) issued a regulation limiting ownership of a local bank by a single non-bank shareholder (local or foreign) to 40%. Although shareholdings owned by banks (as opposed to non-banks) may exceed 40% subject to approval from BI, a lengthy waiting period applies-a minimum of five years from the date of approval.
