Launches New Equity Mutual Fund, BCA Offers Shariah and ESG Investments

Jakarta, July 6, 2023 - PT Bank Central Asia Tbk (BCA) observes an increasing awareness among the Indonesian population regarding the importance of investing for the future. According to data from the Indonesian Capital Market Statistics, the number of Indonesian investors grew by 4.39% in March 2023 compared to the previous year. This trend is consistent with BCA Investment's Asset Under Management, which experienced a growth rate exceeding 40% during the same period.

Director of BCA, Haryanto T. Budiman, stated, "Diversification is crucial when it comes to investment. Investment products that consider the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) aspects can be a viable solution. Companies that incorporate ESG principles tend to exhibit resilience during times of crisis and can generate long-term value and profits. Recognizing the need for diversification, BCA has partnered with investment manager PT Batavia Prosperindo Aset Manajemen (BPAM) to offer investment products denominated in USD and based on Sharia principles, with an ESG theme. This product is called Batavia Global ESG Sharia Equity USD Mutual Fund (BGESEU)."

Lilis Setiadi, the President Director of BPAM, expressed, "Aligned with BCA, we believe that companies that have implemented ESG practices tend to be better managed and are less susceptible to potential legal sanctions, as well as demands from customers and employees. We have partnered with BlackRock (one of the largest investment managers in the world) as our Technical Advisor, leveraging their technological expertise and research resources to further optimize the management of the BGESEU portfolio."

For your information, BlackRock has over 30 years of experience in investment management and manages assets worth approximately $8.5 trillion as of December 31, 2022. The investment portfolio management of BGESEU will focus on global companies that have already implemented ESG practices and operate in various sectors such as Information Technology, Healthcare, and Materials & Industrials (the largest sectors within BGESEU).

"BCA is committed to always being by its customers' side, assisting them in preparing for the future through Investment Advisory services that provide investment portfolio solutions tailored to the needs and risk profiles of the customers. One manifestation of this commitment is the introduction of BGESEU to complement the Mutual Fund options at BCA.” stated Haryanto

Additionally, for customers who wish to purchase it through the Welma feature in the myBCA application, make sure that the customer's USD Mutual Fund investment account is connected to the Welma feature in the myBCA application.
