The franchise across the four markets comprises its unsecured and secured lending portfolios, wealth management and retail deposit businesses.

Completion of the acquisition in each country is conditional on obtaining regulatory approvals.

The Jakarta team from Ginting & Reksodiputro in association with Allen & Overy was led by partner Sugianto Osman. Vietnam support was led by partner Duc Tran and the Thailand team by partner Noparat Kaewsringarm. Malaysia law advice was provided by local firm Kadir Andri & Partners.
