Friderica Widyasari Dewi

Could you tell us more about the role of KSEI?

KSEI is one of three self-regulatory organizations in the Indonesian capital market along with the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) and Indonesian Clearing and Guarantee Corporation (KPEI). KSEI represents the country as the Central Securities Depository, which provides securities central custody and transaction settlement services. KSEI commits to continuously support the growth of the Indonesia capital markets by developing infrastructures and innovations. We provide the platform and system infrastructure to support the needs of our regulator, the Financial Services Authority (OJK), stakeholders, and market players.

What are your initiatives to educate people on your available products (AKSes)?

KSEI has been conducting several activities and awareness programs on the Indonesian capital market together with IDX and KPEI. The AKSes Facility was established by KSEI in 2009, and in 2012 we launched the AKSes mobile application. Investors use this facility to monitor their investment portfolios online based on real-time data recorded by KSEI. Together with Single Investor Identification (SID) and the Investor Client's Fund Account (RDN), AKSes Facility is intended to be an investor protection facility in the local capital market.
