DANAREKSA INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT
THE PIONEER OF MUTUAL FUND INDUSTRY IN INDONESIA
Danareksa Investment Management (“DIM”) is the FIRST asset management company established in Indonesia and has become one of the most respected fund managers nationally. DIM’s business was essentially founded in 1976 as the first capital market company in Indonesia and laid out the very foundation of capital market platform in Indonesia. The name of Danareksa Investment Management (DIM) was merely formalized in 1992 as part of the subsidiary of PT Danareksa (Persero) as the parent company.
In 1995, the Government of Republic of Indonesia launched the Capital Market Law number 8/1995 with aim to regulate capital market in Indonesia. In 1996, we pioneered the very first mutual funds in the country through the following products: Danareksa Melati (fixed income fund), Danareksa Anggrek (balanced fund), and Danareksa Mawar (equity fund).
Within the realm of mutual funds, we have 17 open-end funds for public which cover asset classes with different focuses and strategies in the following categories: money market funds, fixed income funds, balanced funds, and equity funds.
INNOVATION is the main DNA in our culture. We launched Reksa Dana Danareksa Syariah – the first Islamic-compliant mutual fund in Indonesia. The breakthrough was then followed by another innovation by launching USD-based funds and Sharia-based index fund.
Aside from mutual funds, we are the only asset management company that is also issuing Asset-Backed Securities (“ABS”) products in Indonesia. Since there are no other asset management companies offering ABS in Indonesia, we are the only natural leader in the industry.
We also have offered an alternative in real-sector financing through state-owned enterprises by launching private-placement funds that strengthens our position as the only investment company offering private-placement products.
Our in-depth technical knowledge, strong clientele relationships, close-knit tie with regulatory entities, and robust research capabilities that make the ABS and private-placement funds offering process possible.
Investment education has been our on-going socialization program to teach the community the importance of investing. We invented “My Investment My Future” program to encourage investors to start investing small consistently early on over time (Dollar cost averaging) for long-term horizon by automatically debiting their saving accounts on the monthly basis.
Technology also helps us get closer to our investors. We were the first fund manager to offer mutual funds directly online. Through our Online Mutual Fund services, we are offering our retail clients to register invest our mutual funds through Internet with ease. To go further, we subsequently developed Mobile Mutual Fund where our clients can subscribe or redeem funds through their mobile phones. These online services are the logical strategy to reach them efficiently.
We humbly welcome this appreciation as the proof of investor’s recognition on our endless endeavor to give all the best we can for our clients.
