Fintech investment in Indonesia is expected to rise in 2022, bucking global fintech investment trends that point to a significant fall in funding this year.

Investment value in Indonesia in just the first half of the year has already surpassed the previous year, with $1.8b reported across 51 deals in 2022. In comparison, $1.6b investments were received by Indonesian fintechs for the full year of 2021.

Payment gateway Xendit logged the largest deal in H1, raising $300m for its Series D funding, led by Coatue and Insight Partners.

For the full year, Indonesia’s fintech investments is expected to reach $3.6b, whilst deal activity in the country is expected to increase slightly by 5% reaching 102 deals in 2022.

The growth contrasts that of global fintech funding. Globally, investments dropped 24% from Q1 to Q2.
