There are some interesting Indonesian consumption patterns according to a recent report by Indonesia’s Kresna Securities.
It cited a survey by research firm MARS Indonesia saying that discounts and promotions are able to change 67% and 52% of window shoppers into buyers respectively even though they may not have been interested in buying at first.
‘Indonesian consumers are dominated by shop lovers and lifestyle shoppers, who accounted for 54.5% of total consumption in 20.
In my view, a locally-listed Reit that will benefit from these trends is Lippo-Mapletree Indonesia Retail Trust. It is a Singapore-based real estate investment trust with a diversified portfolio of income producing retail and retail-related properties in Indonesia.
