FERNBACH is already a solution provider for several banks in Indonesia and has gained a lot of experience doing IFRS 9 projects in Europe and other parts of the world. FERNBACH’s value proposition is in particular based upon our FlexFinance Modelbank in combination with our “ready-to-go” implementation methodology that caters especially for price-sensitive customers who nonetheless aim to install and use a state-of-the-art IFRS 9/PSAK 71 application.

Indonesia will have to adopt an expected credit loss model instead of an incurred loss model on the 1 January 2020. This necessitates the application of several forward-looking scenarios which most local banks will have to develop from scratch. BDO Indonesia is supporting FERNBACH’s clients by acting as their local implementation partner. Partner Pak Yudhi Prasetyo and his team is convinced that the team up will have a significant added value for Indonesian customers as they will also be able to access FlexFinance in the cloud.
