JAKARTA, August 1, 2022 – People are now increasingly aware of the importance of investing as a preparation for retirement and old age, followed by a large selection of available investment instruments such as gold, property, and mutual funds, as well as making it easier to invest in line with technology development.
One of the investment instruments that are currently in great demand by the public is mutual funds. The Financial Services Authority (OJK) noted that the managed funds or net asset value (NAV) of mutual funds until December 30, 2021 reached IDR 578.44 trillion. This managed fund increased by 0.85 percent or an increase of Rp. 5 trillion from the end of 2020 which was valued at Rp. 573.54 trillion. The increase in mutual fund managed funds was supported by the increase in the number of investors and the issuance of new products.
The December 2021 managed fund is also the highest record in the history of the national mutual fund industry, after the previous highest record was recorded in December 2020. The previous highest record was recorded in October 2019 where mutual fund managed funds sold to the public at that time reached Rp553.26 trillion.
