JAKARTA, INDONESIA / ACCESSWIRE / April 11, 2019 / Maybank Indonesia is focusing on their core activities by selling written off receivables for more than 330M USD to Collectius, a multinational credit management service and asset management company pioneering debt purchase in Indonesia.
The selling of the written off receivables will further strengthen the bank’s liquidity position. The portfolio comprises more than 300,000 accounts and the borrowers include individuals who had undertaken credit cards and personal loans. The decision will enable the bank to focus their resources and concentrate on core activities.
”Good reputation and experience in managing receivables portfolio (cessie) in South East Asia were the reasons Maybank chose to work with Collectius to manage their customers. Apart from the revenue generated by the sale, the collaboration also offered added advantage for Maybank Indonesia from a cost saving perspective, in particular, the labor cost. Maybank, in turn, will provide a ”One Stop Banking” solution for Collectius in terms of their operational needs, such as payroll, cash management, payment point and credit card, etc., an additional benefit from business standpoint for Maybank Indonesia,” says Edwin D Brethoniere, Head of Consumer Asset Quality Management of Maybank Indonesia.
”This is our first deal in Indonesia and marks the start of a positive beginning for more than 300,000 Indonesians to becoming debt free,” says Gustav A. Eriksson CEO Collectius Group.
