Message from CEO
COMPANY’S MAIN BUSINESS
PT Sarana Multigriya Finansial (Persero) carries a mission from the government to disburse funds from the capital market to mortgage lenders. The objective is to enhance acceleration of mortgage volume in Indonesia as an effort to increase capacity and sustainability of home financing so that it is affordable by the people, especially those in middle to lower society. Fund flow activity is carried out in two ways, first is by facilitating securitization program for mortgage lender, and secondly is by providing financing facility for mortgage lender that funded by debt securities issuance. Those two programs are the Company’s main activities.
As part of the world economic community, Indonesia’s economic performance is also affected by the global economic condition. In 2017, the global economic condition began to show a number of improvement. This was marked by the economic improvement in developed countries and the strengthening of economic role of developing countries.
China and the United States which became the motor of global economic growth in 2017 managed to record positive economic growth. After continuously depressed over the past 7 years, China’s economic growth in 2017 grew by 6.9%, higher than the economic growth in previous year, which was 6.7%. Likewise, the United States achieved 2.3% economic growth in 2017 when in previous year, it only achieved economic growth of 1.5%.
Economic improvement in developed countries has increased the demand for global products and supported the economic performance of developing countries, including Indonesia. In 2017, Indonesia’s economic growth was well maintained and increased by 5.07% compared to 5.02% in previous year. Consumption spending that contributed an average of 64.0% to Indonesia’s GDP remained a major contributor to the economic growth.
Several economic indicators that supported Indonesia’s economic growth in 2017 include: the downward trend in inflation, rupiah exchange rate was relatively stable in the range of IDR13,400/USD, as well as the performance of international trade which increased along with the improvement of commodity prices. Bank Indonesia also released its monetary policy amid the global normalization. Cumulatively, the benchmark interest rate fell by 50 bps from 4.75% to 4.25% at 25 bps respectively in August and September 2017. Indonesia also received an investment grade rating from international rating agencies and Indonesia’s banking outlook increased from stable to positive.
The quality of economic development in Indonesia was also supported by the confidence of foreign investors in the Indonesian economy. Currently, Indonesia’s sovereign debt rating has been categorized as investment grade by three international rating agencies after Standard & Poor’s (S&P) upgraded Indonesia’s sovereign debt to BBB- with a stable outlook on May 19, 2017. This upgrade followed the improved ratings previously given by ratings agency, Moody’s and Fitch. Moody’s credit rating for Indonesia was Baa3 with a positive outlook set last on February, 8 2017. Meanwhile, in the latest development in 2017, Fitch upgraded Indonesia’s credit rating one notch to BBB with a stable outlook on December 20, 2017.
The improved Indonesian economy also affected the demand for housing finance. Mortgage increased from 7% in early 2017 to 11.0% in November 2017. Meanwhile, NPL ratio of Mortgage was relatively stable at the range of 2.8%.
In 2017, PT Sarana Multigriya Finansial (Persero) continued to drive the pace of its business growth. Moreover, the macroeconomic condition in 2017 was quite supportive for the Company to improve its business growth acceleration.
One of the steps taken by the Company in 2017 was to launch Regional Development Banks Mortgage Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) and Sharia Home Ownership Financing Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) as a follow-up to the issuance of Presidential Regulation No. 101/ 2016 on Secondary Mortgage. The establishment of Sharia PPR SOP was in line with the Government’s policy to develop sharia-based housing finance schemes that can be traded in the capital market. The scheme development was conducted by empowering the housing finance players, either in primary market with the issuance of standardized mortgage or in the secondary market with mortgage securitization, therefore, it was expected that a low cost and affordable housing finance system for MBR and sustainable could be created.
For the Company, the objective of Sharia PPR SOP is to strengthen the strategic role of Sharia PPR distributors in increasing the volume of PPR distribution to meet the needs for decent housing for the people.
In addition, the Company also continues to enhance cooperation with the Regional Development Bank as partner in disbursing mortgages to the people. The Company has established cooperation with almost all Regional Development Banks in Indonesia. Throughout 2017, the Company conducted capacity building and training for several Regional Development Banks to improve its mortgage disbursement. The effort was made to increase asset securitization.
In 2017, the Company also began to run the Company’s Mortgage (KPR-SMF) program, which was collection of a number of qualified mortgages from several Regional Development Banks. It is expected that soon in the future, the number of such mortgage can be securitized by the Company.
In 2017, another important matter for the Company, was its preparation for digital transformation. The Company is revamping its information technology system to support the Company’s business development in the future.
As we know, the Company is partnering with banks and financial institutions that have qualified IT system. With such digital transformation, the Company’s IT system is expected to “communicate” better with its IT partner system.
In 2017, the Company still faced the same challenge as previous years, which was how to obtain long-term funds with competitive interest rates so that the Company can continue to provide mortgage financing to its partners with competitive interest rates. The Company expects that the Indonesia’s debt rating upgrade to BBB in 2017 will encourage fresh foreign capital inflow in long-term investment on bonds issued by the Company.
Another challenge faced by the Company in 2017 was the reluctance of banks to release their assets for securitization, especially the national conventional banks. Most of the national conventional banks preferred to hold their assets in order to pursue the improvement of the bank category in the bank business group at Bank Indonesia.
In facing these challenges, the Company intensified its cooperation with Regional Development Bank and multifinance to encourage them to promote their mortgage products. The Company did not only provide funding, but also assisted Regional Development Banks and multifinance in preparing SOP for selling mortgage products.
The Company’s effort in issuing KPR BPD SOP and Sharia PPR SOP was a step taken by the Company to improve the quality of bank mortgage assets. The Company has faced obstacles in the form of uneven quality of mortgage assets owned by banks, which was due to differences in standards imposed by banks for mortgage disbursement.
To support its business activities, especially loans, the Company issued debt securities in the form of bonds, Medium Term Notes (MTN), and Sukuk. In 2017, the Company issued debt securities in the forms of bonds with continuing scheme and diversification of funding by using sharia scheme through the issuance of Sukuk Mudharabah with details as follows:
SMF PERFORMANCE IN 2017
The Company’s performance indicators in 2017 were at an excellent level. Almost all of the targets set out in the Company’s 2017 Work Plan and Budget were achieved. In the case of funds disbursement, throughout 2017, the Company had 2 (two) types of loan programs for mortgage lenders institutions, which were KPR Refinancing and KPR Repo program (Term Purchase Program). In 2017, the Company provided loan facilities to mortgage lenders amounting to IDR11.10 trillion or an increase of 33.43% compared to the position in 2016 which reached IDR8.32 trillion. The achievement was equivalent to 116.14% of the set target for RKAP of IDR9.56 trillion in 2017.
In the case of securitization, in 2017, the Company has securitized various KPR receivables assets amounted to about IDR8.16 trillion or increased by 13.98% compared to securitization achievement in 2016 of IDR7.16 trillion.
In more detail, the achievement of the 2017 target is as follows: (In billion IDR)

THE COMPANY’S BUSINESS OUTLOOK
Indonesia’s economic condition in 2018 is expected to experience better growth compared to 2017. The Government estimates an economic growth of 5.4% while Bank Indonesia projects a more conservative economic growth of 5.26%. Continued improvement of economics in the developed countries is expected to boost demand for commodities, especially those from the developing countries. In preparing the business prospects for 2018 fiscal year, the Company also considers these external factors.
From the industry side, the potential demand for KPR and KPA is expected to increase, supported by the increasing number of housing needed every year. This can be seen from the housing backlog which reached 7.6 million in 2014 and 3.4 million houses in damaged or uninhabitable condition (source: Ministry of Public Works and Housing). The number of backlogs will potentially increase as Indonesia’s population grows by around 305.65 million in 2035 as well as an increase in urbanization. In addition, the need for housing is more urgent as the number of households in Indonesia reached 65.59 million households in 2015 or grew by 1.3% over the previous year. On the other hand, the Government has targeted the reduction of backlogs to be around 5 million in 2019 as stated in the Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJM).
Considering the above factors, the Company has set better performance targets compared to 2017. In addition to support from external conditions, the Company’s internal strengths, namely experiences and its improved performance track record in the recent years will be key factors of the Company’s achievement in 2018.
