I happily welcome the publication of Financial Stability Report No. 11, September 2008. This report bears important
weight as much development has ensued in the financial sector, both domestic and abroad, and therefore needing to be
analyzed and communicated to serve the best interests of our stakeholders. It is our hope that readers will be able to gain
much information on the recent developments in Indonesia»s financial sector and its resilience in the face of various
shocks and risk pressures.
In general, our analysis shows that the country»s financial sector resilience during the first half of 2008 has been well
maintained. The banking industry, the financial sector»s dominant industry, has been able to maintain relatively good
performance as evident by fairly high profitability and capital levels, low non-performing loans, and well-maintained
liquidity. However, such achievements are no reason for complacency as many challenges have recently surfaced within
the financial sector-all of which demanding our prompt attention.
A critical challenge is soaring credit growth. Occurring in a non-high inflation period, strong financial intermediation
displayed by banks would have been a welcomed feat. However, with inflation pressures on the rise, it becomes our
challenge to see today»s strong credit growth not evolving into tomorrow»s problem loans. Also of our concern is that
strong credit growth does not occur at the cost of liquidity in the banking system.
Meanwhile, it is also important to pay close attention to the developments of the financial crisis in the United States
and other countries in various parts of the world as caused by the subprime mortgage debacle. Our banking industry»s
non-exposure to subprime mortgage derivatives has avoided it from the crisis» direct impacts. However, with the increasing
degree of integration between international and domestic economies, it behooves us to carefully monitor the impacts of
the global financial crisis to the banking and financial sector as a whole.
Moving forward, with constantly growing challenges and uncertainties in the financial world, there is no option but
to increase financial sector resilience, alertness, and prudence. Undoubtedly, all this will steer us away from the path of a
crisis and enhance the financial sector»s contribution to economic growth and thus achieving greater prosperity for the

During the first semester of 2008, the financial system stability was preserved
amid intensifying pressures stemming from both the global and domestic
economies. Meanwhile, the banking industry, Indonesia»s financial sector
dominant industry, indicated favorable performance with well-managed
liquidity as well as relatively high profitability and capital. Additionally, for
the first time since the financial crisis in 1997/1998, loans expanded greatly
to 31.6% (y-o-y) with a loan-to-deposit ratio of 76.6% by the end of June
2008. This strongly reflects that the intermediary function of banks has
improved. Nevertheless, robust credit growth during this period of high
inflation necessitates increased vigilance to prevent greater credit risk.
Furthermore, as credit growth outpaced that of third party funds (deposits),
increased liquidity risk and long-term capital pressures should be anticipated.
Through accurate anticipatory and risk mitigation measures, financial and
banking system resilience in future is expected to remain positive.

Macroeconomic stability in Indonesia was well maintained throughout the
first semester of 2008. However, increasing external pressures due to the
global economic downturn coupled with escalating inflation attributable to
soaring oil and food commodity prices, discouraged business players in the
real sector from consuming as well as undertaking expansionary activities.
Rising production costs together with weaker consumer purchasing power
reduced profitability of the corporate sector. If such inauspicious conditions
persist, domestic financial sector resilience may be threatened.

Chapter 2 Financial Sector

Compared to the previous semester, the Indonesian financial sector continued
to grow apace throughout Semester-I 2008 despite inauspicious economic
conditions. Meanwhile, even though banks remain as the dominant force of
the financial sector, non-bank financial institutions and the capital market
continue to grow. With strong capital, banks remained resilient to fluctuations
in risk, including credit risk, liquidity risk, interest rate risk, exchange rate risk
and SUN price depreciation risk. In the future, such resilience must be built
upon, not only by increasing capital alone but also through enhancing the
quality of risk management.

The reliability of Indonesian financial infrastructure continued to support the
preservation of financial system stability. The payment system functioned
effectively despite the burgeoning settlement volume and value during the
first semester of 2008. This was underpinned by efforts to develop the financial
system, which focused on mitigating settlement risk and operational risk.
Meanwhile, preparations for crisis management protocol (CMP) continued
unabated by the Government, Bank Indonesia and the Deposit Insurance
Corporation through the Financial System Stability Forum. CMP will clarify
the inter-agency roles, responsibilities and action plans to prevent and handle
crises in the financial sector.

The outlook for the Indonesian financial system remains favorable, despite
the potential emergence of vulnerabilities. Strong bank credit growth will
continue to heighten liquidity risk and credit risk as NPLs increase. In addition,
expansive growth may undermine the capital adequacy ratio of banks.
Conversely, market risk will remain stable in the face of increasing pressures
stemming from the declining price of Government Bonds (SUN).

Wimboh Santoso1, Cicilia A. Harun2, Taufik Hidayat3, Hero Wonida4

The emerging financial market is somewhat a safe haven for investment especially during the global financial
crisis caused by the subprime mortgage crisis. However, the use of a liquidity risk measurement shows that the
emerging markets are still affected by the subprime mortgage crisis through the increase of liquidity risk. By
using the liquidity-adjusted value at risk method, we show that the liquidity risk of the Indonesian capital market
increases especially during the second semester of 2007. This suggest the importance of liquidity risk measurements

Operational Risk in Indonesia:
Advance Measurement Approach

Wimboh Santoso1, Bambang Hermanto2

The research objective is to measure operational risk with a primary focus on exploring risk measurement in
accordance with the business line characteristics of the Indonesian banking structure and development of a
prototype bank loss distribution model. The data used includes survey data for operational risk loss of nine banks
in Indonesia, including various types of operational risk loss, time of incident, cause of loss, loss frequency and
value or amount of loss. Research results indicated that the largest operational losses occurred due to payment
and settlement event types, as well as the business lines of clients, products and business practices. The most
frequent incidents occurred in the retail banking business line and execution, delivery and process management
