Indonesia Stock Exchange (also known as IDX) is the one to handle securities transactions in Indonesia. Its primary goal is to provide infrastructure that can run trading of securities which is orderly, fair, and efficient.
IDX started as a merger project between the Jakarta Stock Exchange (JSX) with the Surabaya Stock Exchange (SSX). IDX has turned up to be a global-scale stock exchange that is credible and well-acknowledged. It has achieved so many things, including the increase of 56% of investors. It is the highest since 2016.
There were regulatory changes enacted between 1988 and 1992, which improved trading activity. The automatic trading system was introduced in 1995 thanks to that. Its implementation on remote trading was later introduced in 2002. It was the hype of the internet era, so more people started working from home, including trading.
The year 2007 was the time JSX merged with SSX – and IDX was born. In May 2018, they made an update on the exchange’s trading system and a new data centre was also created.
IDX has also started on crypto-asset exchanges. Many people have also started taking an interest in online trading.
How has Indonesia Stock Exchange become the most active in Asia so far? Until May 26, 2023, they had 40 issuers listing their shares with an emission with the value of 32.7 trillion rupiahs. Fourty-three companies are listed in the IDX IPO pipeline.
According to I Gede Nyoman Yetna, IDX Director of Corporate Valuation, there has been consistent success of conducting the latest share listings done by IDX. These listings are among exchanges around the regions of Southeast Asian countries.
The company owners’ interest and management in Indonesia in an IPO is still on a positive light. Based on the Ernst & Young (EY) report, there were299 companies holding IPOs from January to March 2023. It was 8% down on a yearly basis. On global exchanges, IPO emissions’ value dropped by 61% to 21.5 billion US dollars.
In short, it is not only Southeast Asia busy with IPOs. Still, Asia is one of the busiest regions when it comes to IPOs.
