BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand’s largest lender Siam Commercial Bank said on Thursday it had invested in Indonesian ride-hailing app Go-Jek.

The move is in line with the bank’s strategy to secure partnerships and expand its digital capacity, including payments and digital lending, SCB said in a statement.

The statement did not disclose the value of the new investment.

Go-Jek began operations in Thailand with motorcycle rides and food delivery last year, putting pressure on rival ride-hailing firm, Singapore-based Grab.
