Another more significant step of Raiz Invest Limited (ASX: RZI) towards its expansion in the Raiz Invest Limited is securing the license of mutual fund distribution in Indonesia. PT Raiz Invest Indonesia which is a subsidiary company of RZI through its Mutual Fund Selling Agent (“APERD”) has received a license from Indonesian Financial Services Authority (OJK), will now act as a Securities Brokerage which is established to market mutual fund.
Meanwhile, RZI is waiting for the OJK’s review on its Raiz mobile first saving and investing technology. Once OJK shares its feedback, RZI would become fully operational in Indonesia.
RZI has already established an office in Jakarta where there are only three staffs who are progressing towards any changes required in its existing platform for its 270-million Indonesian market.
The Managing Director of Raiz, George Lucas considers this achievement of receiving a license from OJK as a boost for the company as they enter the Indonesian market where there is a continuous growth in population and GDP of the country. He also highlights that the company has made a public offering in June in Indonesia which forms an essential part of Southeast Asian strategy. In this regard, the company has received continuous support from OJK.
