Bank Negara Indonesia saw its non-performing loan ratio increase from 2.3% in 2019 to 4.2% last year.

Indonesia has been among the hardest-hit countries in south-east Asia during the Covid-19 pandemic, as seen in the rise in non-performing loans (NPLs) at its leading banks.

State-owned Bank Negara Indonesia saw its NPL ratio almost double, rising from 2.3% in 2019 to 4.3% last year, while the country’s largest lender, Bank Mandiri, saw its NPL ratio rise from 2.4% to 3.3%, according to The Banker Database.

Other leading lenders saw less severe rises. The NPL ratio at Bank Central Asia rose from 1.3% in 2019 to to 1.8% in 2020, while the NPL ratio at Bank Rakyat Indonesia inched up from 2.8% to 3.0%.

Bucking the trend was Bank Tabungan Negara, which saw its NPL ratio fall from 4.8% to 4.4% last year.

As the government eases regulatory support for the sector and the number of Covid-19 cases in the country remains high, further pressure on asset quality is expected.
