Fitch that the banks will maintain individual credit profile stable, despite rising economic downturn domestic.


Long-Term IDRs, National Long-term ratings, rating Support and Support Rating reflect the lower limit of the magnitude ekstraordinari will support for state-owned banks in times of need government based on majority ownership, systemic importance of banks The role of the domestic economy and the banks on government policy. Fitch believes that the four banks have impact Systemic against the state due Mandiri, BRI, BNI and BTN respectively is the largest bank, the second largest, fourth and tenth of total assets banking in Indonesia. Four banks together constitute 35.2% of the total system assets at the end of the first half of 2013. Term National Rating BTN length lower than other banks because the government reflecting the impact of lower systemic.

Viability Rating (Viability Rating / VR) Bank Mandiri at 'bb +' reflects improved asset quality, healthy profitability, sufficient capital, majority ownership of the state and its position as the largest bank in Indonesia.

BRI Viability Rating at 'bb +' reflects the strong profitability - one one of the highest in the industry - and its position as the second largest bank in Indonesia in Indonesia focuses on micro-credit with asset quality satisfying. BNI Viability Rating at 'bb' reflects the bank's performance relatively weak, despite the improvement of asset quality and profitability, as well as smaller networks than Mandiri and BRI.

Fitch expects profitability and revenue banks will experience but the pressure will be maintained, although the condition of the domestic economy slows, because the banks have improved their credit risk management and portfolio credit has been more diversified.

Credit growth is expected to slow to about 15-20% due to rising interest rates, commodity price declines and the depreciation of the rupiah. it is can also lead to an increase in non-performing loans in 2013 from the position low at the end of June 2013. The increase in funding costs, lower demand loans and rising provisioning costs will likely inhibit growth profit.

Of the four banks, Fitch expects loan growth BTN will most slightly affected by the progressive advance of regulations for the purchase property that was issued in September 2013. The regulation does not impact on subsidized loans, which is largely a portfolio BTN which is where most of the borrowers are first time home buyers.

Fitch estimates that, in the medium term, the financial performance of banks owned by the government will remain good in the midst of economic conditions deteriorated, supported by strong cushion to absorb losses considering the strong profitability, and high provisioning sufficient core capital. Based on the results of the stress test, state banks have sufficient income before provision to absorb the loss rate higher borrowing sanpai 5-5.5% of the total loan BRI, Mandiri and BNI and 2-3% of the BTN, which is higher than the average loan losses during 2009-H113 is smaller than 1% for the BTN, 1% for Mandiri, and 2% for BRI and BNI.

BTN lower provisioning costs compared with three state-owned banks others, recovery (recovery) of troubled loans are housing loans consistently better thus providing an additional buffer against losses loan. Fitch notes that Bank Indonesia has been more proactive in prevent excessive risks that will increase sharply in the system.

For example, BI issued a regulation in 2012 to advance and September 2013 to organize a consumer loan asset quality, loan ratios imposed to deposit more stringent for banks, and implement secondary provisioning policy (secondary reserve) in 2013 as the repson the deteriorating domestic economic conditions.


Change of Indonesia's sovereign ratings ('BBB-' / Stable) and the tendency government to provide timely support would be cause changes in the ratings of those banks. Decline in financial profile individual state-owned banks will have an impact on small kemungkinanannya IDRs and national rating unless the factors that affect the support of government also weakened. Global Initiasi to reduce government support implicitly the banks can negatively impact ratings bank, but this is not believed to be applied in Indonesia in the future close.

BRI subordinated bond ratings assigned three ranks below the rank National BRI obtained from viability ratings, which take into account one notch for loss severity and two notches for non-performance risk, which reflects the delay clause coupon and / or principal.
