  • BNI Syariah: The bank was founded on 29 April 2000 as a sharia banking unit of BNI. In 2010 it spun-off as a separate subsidiary.
  • BRIsyariah: The bank was originally established on 3 July 1969 as Bank Djasa Arta (later spelled Bank Jasa Arta) and headquartered in Bandung, East Java. On 19 December 2007, the bank was acquired by BRI. Following Bank Indonesia permit on 16 October 2008, it was converted to sharia banking and officially operated as BRI Syariah on 17 November 2008;[3] in 2009 the sharia banking unit of BRI was officially merged to the bank.
