The COVID-19 pandemic has arguably increased the usage of digital technology, leading to accelerated changes in consumers’ behaviors as more people choose to perform certain types of economic activities through online platforms. Fintech is thus increasingly seen as the preferred platform for engaging financial services in recent years.

Furthermore, the rise of new fintech startups within Indonesia has also brought about new innovations and stabilized the various technologies as well as business processes in the fintech field.

However, the rapid uptake and development of fintech have also led to various positive and negative social and psychological implications for users, ranging from increased literacy to cyberphobia.

This webinar will share the key findings from an online survey on Indonesians’ experiences and perceptions of fintech tools, conducted in the Greater Jakarta area from November to December 2021. The possible impacts of fintech usage, as well as their considerations for fintech adoption among end-users, will also be discussed in this webinar.

Market Sentiment Update- What Q1 2022 can tell us about the second half of the year and beyond


According to data from the Deals Barometer, startups in China and India have raised over US$12 billion in Q1 2022, and in Southeast Asia, the figure stands north of US$5 billion.

However, even as the threat of the pandemic recedes, other risk factors are emerging: prominent among them being rising inflation, the discouraging post-IPO performance of many Asian startups, SPACs finding fewer takers, and geopolitical uncertainties.

What will the dominant themes be through the rest of 2022 and beyond? What is the outlook on listing? Will the desire to remain private for longer result in an uptick in M&A activity, and with the era of big easy money believed to be drawing to a close, how does this affect fundraising?

These are just some of the subjects that we will be addressing in DealStreetAsia’s next webinar scheduled for 14:00 SGT on May 19, 2022, Market Sentiment Update: What Q1 of 2022 can tell us about the second half of the year and beyond.
