This initiative is part of creating a cohesive cross-collaboration between fintech and banking as well as jointly innovating products, providing digital financing services and more integrated business solutions, as well as expanding the reach to prospective debtors or MSME actors in cities that are part of Amar Bank network. In addition, this acquisition will further strengthen Investree's solid ecosystem, allowing for increased strategic potential to empower MSMEs across the country.

Commenting on the acquisition, Vishal Tulsian, President Director of Amar Bank, said, “The strategic partnership with Investree will strengthen Amar Bank's position as a digital bank that leverages technology to have a positive impact in the country. Investree is the largest fintech lending player in Indonesia with a strong focus on the SME segment. Tunaiku, Amar Bank's product is the most powerful digital lending platform for individuals and micro-businesses based on Big Data, and Senyumku is the most advanced AI-based digital banking platform. Amar's strong balance sheet + Tunaiku digital loan + Senyumku digital banking + Investree SME Loan + Investree Ecosystem = Ready to become the strongest Indonesian Digital Bank that focuses on MSMEs."


Utilizing a solid ecosystem, Investree and Amar Bank will build a digital bank for MSME players who are the backbone of the country's economy, as well as cross-collaborating by maximizing existing products from both the Investree and Amar Bank sides to optimize support for MSMEs. (LM)
