Jack Brown Invest Islands about investment opportunities in Indonesia : Indonesia’s economy is on the rise, helping the country take its rightful position as a major destination for foreign direct investment (FDI). Indonesia is entering a “sweet spot” as a convergence of its young, working population with that of relatively stable inflation and sustained economic growth which in turn is fuelling overall consumer spending. Finally, the country’s resilience during the global financial crisis illustrates the merits of its immense population and economic self-reliance, demonstrating how these factors buck the trend of most other G20 economies.
Indonesia is the fourth most populated country in the world and the largest economy in Southeast Asia with a 2014 nominal GDP of $888.6 billion. With strong economic growth and a young population, many economists have argued that it should be added to the so-called BRIC economies as an up-and-coming emerging market. Those looking to invest in Indonesia should start with the Jakarta Composite Index (JCI). While the rest of the world was in a recession between 2009 and 2012, the country’s primary equity index jumped from a low of around 1140 to a high of around 4100. And it was one of the only emerging markets in the world to come out of 2011 with any real economic growth.

USD 23 billion in impact investing opportunities. A conservative estimate by my team at Mekar and myself sets the impact investment potential at USD 23+ billion over the next five years. The Mekar report concluded that the largest opportunities lay in renewable energy, agriculture and fisheries, water, private education and financial services. The report covers 17 sectors of industry with high impact and commercial potential, it looks at the risks, trends and opportunities within these sectors. The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) reports that over the last decade some USD 3.7 billion in impact investments flowed into Indonesia. A small portion of this USD 148 million is from private impact investors, the rest from development finance institutions (DFIs). Agribusiness and Financial services received the majority of the capital, where DFI’s tended to use debt and private investors equity finance.
