“BMoney from BIB is our platform to realize this passion and mission,” said Victor Lesmana, Chief Executive Officer of BukaFinancial & Commerce.

Through the presence of the Shares and BMoney Privilege features, he said BMoney can provide inclusive services for more Indonesians who have various investment needs.

“This is also part of BMoney’s goal to assist the public in finding investment product choices that are safe and catering to to their needs,” he added.

Dhinda Arisyiya, Chief Operating Officer of PT Buka Investasi Bersama, conveyed the launch of the Shares and BMoney Privilege features as a form of BMoney’s commitment to expanding its support for investors with ever-increasing needs.

“BMoney has successfully served nearly one million investors since its launch in 2020 with a total managed fund of more than 1 trillion Rupiah where the managed fund has experienced a triple digit increase throughout 2022,

“Departing from this growth, we want to expand our services in facilitating many more investment needs of the community,” she said.

Cited data from IDX until the end of December 2022, she said 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 added.
