In Indonesia’s still-developing capital markets, it can be challenging for mid-size corporates to find investment and corporate finance solutions that meet their specific needs. While most international bulge-bracket banks are represented in the market, their services are generally focused on large enterprises.
IndoSterling Capital is an independent strategic advisory firm that fills this critical gap in the Indonesia market. We provide mid-size corporates with go-to-capital-market strategies that often exceed the capabilities of other domestic financial services providers.
Our specialist team is distinguished by in-depth understanding of Indonesia’s social, economic, political and cultural environment. We have seasoned corporate finance and investment banking specialists located on the ground in our Jakarta office. These specialists are intimately aware of local legal and business practices and regulations that is complemented by wide experience in Asia Pacific markets.
IndoSterling’s in-depth market experience allows us to support our clients with the most appropriate funding strategies. Our approach brings together expertise in strategic advisory, deal execution and investor relation initiatives.

We believe that understanding a client’s current position and future aspirations is paramount to providing effective solutions.
To this end, we take every client through a three-step process that includes:
1. An in-depth review of the client’s current status and goals.
2. A comprehensive analysis of the external market environment to determine the approach and strategy that is best suited to the client’s needs.
3. Presentation of a detailed go-to-capital-market strategy that is tailored to meet the client’s specific needs and the current market conditions.
This is accompanied by a transparent and clearly explained engagement plan to achieve the desired outcomes.
We apply this approach across our service offerings, which include deal origination, deal advisory and structuring, deal execution, fund raising, strategic investment and investment management.
IndoSterling Capital does not just wait for deals to happen. In many cases we create deals and make them happen.
Our track record of success in deal origination is based on:
• Up-to-date market intelligence;
• Strong relationships with investment targets and stakeholders in the origination value chain; and
• Contacts who can share unique market insights and access.

IndoSterling prides itself on helping companies ensure that deals do not fall apart at the last moment due to unforeseen constraints, realising value from an acquisition or regulatory considerations such as taxation issues. We consider all value drivers and risks to all aspects of a deal structure.
IndoSterling Capital understands that ﬁnancing a deal is not just about raising sufficient funds, but about optimising the structure to deliver favourable and ﬂexible terms. We have strong relationships with the domestic and global investment communities and high-net-worth individuals actively seeking value creation opportunities across different fund raising environments.
