Reksadana merupakan instrumen investasi yang cukup menjanjikan. Namun sayangnya produk investasi ini belum ampuh menarik perhatian masyarakat Indonesia.
Kepala Eksekutif Pengawas Pasar Modal/Dewan Komisioner OJK Hoesen mengatakan, dari tahun ketahun industri reksadana sebenarnya mengalami peningkatan yang cukup signifikan. Dari sisi dana kelolaan (asset under management/AUM) misalnya, peningkatannya cukup signifikan.
“Dari tahun ke tahun industri reksadana terus menunjukkan pertumbuhan luar biasa. Dalam 4 tahun terakhir total dana kelolaan tumbuh lebih dua kali lipat yaitu Rp 242 triliun pada Desember 2014 jadi Rp 505 triliun per Desember 2018,” terangnya di Gedung BEI, Jakarta, Selasa (22/1/2019).
In terms of the number of mutual fund products also increased. In December 2014 there were 895 mutual fund products, then in December 2018 it increased to 2,098 products.
In terms of the number of investors in mutual funds also rose significantly. In December 2018 there were 320 thousand investors to 995 thousand investors in 2018.
Although the increase in investors is quite encouraging, according to Hoesen, the number is still far from the potential of existing domestic investors. What’s more Indonesia has such a large population.
“As a rough illustration, if we compare the total population of the Indonesian middle class which reaches 22% of the total population. The number of mutual fund investors has only reached 1.8%. When compared with the total population of Indonesia, it is only 0.4%,” including it.
Even so, the data shows that the mutual fund industry can still develop in the future. Therefore, he hopes that all parties involved can innovate in developing the industry.
“The global development of information technology in the last few decades has also changed the landscape of the financial services industry, including the mutual fund industry. OJK has revised regulations that regulate the use of information technology or digitalization in mutual fund marketing. and a sales agent, “he concluded. (das/dna)
