The IDX president director attributed this achievement to the synergy and collaboration among all stakeholders in the Indonesian capital market.
The number of new stock investors has grown rapidly in just eight months this year, almost doubling, from 590,658 new single investor identification (SID) in 2020.
"This digital optimization began in 2019 and then maximized in 2020, and this trend has continued through synergy and collaboration among all capital market stakeholders," he remarked.
