Launched by our team in Indonesia, G&R Airtime is a fintech focused podcast. Lawyers from Ginting & Reksodiputro, in association with Allen & Overy (G&R), together with guest speakers, uncover the current commercial and legal fintech trends in Indonesia in order to highlight potential opportunities and challenges for both investors and start-ups.

In episode 4 of G&R Airtime, we hear from Ivan Tambunan, CEO and co-founder of one of Indonesia’s leading peer-to-peer (P2P) lending platforms, Akseleran, about the P2P market and what is important for borrowers and lenders when venturing into this space.  In this episode, you will hear about:

  • Why Akseleran evolved from an equity crowd funding platform into a purely P2P lending platform
  • Ivan’s thoughts on ‘financial inclusion’ and his plans to fill Indonesia’s SME funding gap
  • The challenges P2P lenders face when seeking investors, but also how the company is looking to protect its investors from non-performing loans
  • The regulatory landscape for P2P platforms and OJK’s desire to curb illegal P2P players
  • Advice for future P2P startups, including what to look for in a VC investor
