Synpulse, the Zurich-headquartered management consultancy specialising in the financial services sector, announced the opening of Synpulse Indonesia in the nation’s capital, Jakarta. The new office further expands the international firm’s Asia Pacific footprint with a presence in one of the world’s fastest growing economies.
“The decision to establish Synpulse’s presence in this dynamic market was a logical step in our overall business strategy to grow our people and develop our business in Asia Pacific, with the goal of becoming a 500-headcount strong business in Asia Pacific by 2025,” says Yves Roesti, Managing Director and Managing Partner. “We already have a significant presence in Asia Pacific with offices in Singapore, Hong Kong, Sydney, and Manila, serving many of the largest financial institutions and a cross-section of local clients.”
The launch of the fifth Asia Pacific location in Jakarta comes as a result of the substantial growth potential the firm sees in Indonesia’s banking and financial sector. Indonesia has the largest unbanked population in ASEAN. The unprecedented growth rates of smartphone adoption and digital services penetration, and changing regulation and FinTech landscape have made Indonesia an ideal location for Synpulse’s expansion.
In Indonesia, Synpulse aims to bring their subject matter expertise and best practices from their experience in financial hubs such as Singapore and Hong Kong to the local Indonesian banks. Most recently, Synpulse led a team of industry experts and IT specialists to successfully advise and implement a multimillion-dollar project for one of Indonesia’s largest banks.
“Our Indonesian office enables us to provide our clients in the banking, FinTech, and financial services space with localised best practices and services tailored to their needs,” says Roesti. “It will help us to strengthen our relationship with existing clients, and we’re excited to see how we can further our growth strategy and build the Synpulse family in the region.”
