Departing from this growth, we want to expand our services in facilitating many more investment needs of the community. Based on data from IDX until the end of December 2022, it was recorded that the number of domestic investors in the Indonesian capital market grew significantly during 2022 to reach 10 million single investor identification (SID) and the number of stock investors was 4 million SID registered in Indonesia. Referring to these data and our internal data, we see high interest in stock investment, especially among non-investors and the potential is still very large in increasing the penetration of stock investors in the country. Therefore, we have designed the share transaction feature at BMoney to accommodate user needs and increase healthy investment habits for users in achieving their financial goals”, she said.

BMoney Privilege will give its users access to portfolios, real-time data insights and the latest news about the stock market, support from marketers, opportunities to expand the network, as well as investment options consisting of choices of Mutual Funds from various asset classes.
