“The collaboration between Fintech and traditional institutions (banks) becomes mandatory for now and in the future. There are several Indonesia banks that have done collaboration actions either in [the] operation aspect or through investment funds. We believe that speed to dominate the market is the key to win for Fintech especially in payments category," said Handojo Triyanto, Senior Research Manager, IDC Financial Insights.

“In the future Indonesia Fintech market will have consolidations by collaboration, mergers and acquisitions between the players. It has already happened as Go Jek (Go Pay) acquired Midtrans, Kartuku, and Mapan. The driver is the need to penetrate consumer market as soon as possible... not only to grab higher market share, but also to attract more investors.”
