KSEI provided information concerning AKSes Card ownership and application not only to the investors, but also to the media in Pontianak.  AKSes Card ownership, as independent monitoring function of investors toward their Securities portfolios, has acquired legal fundamental in the form of Bapepam-LK Regulation Number V.D.4.  In this regulation, Securities Companies are required to provide AKSes Card to their investor-clients.  Currently, it is more relevant for the Investors to have AKSes Card. 

To the media, Margeret explained the reason of AKSes Card launching.  “As one of the parties that has the authority to set a regulation in Indonesia capital market or usually called the Self Regulatory Organization (SRO), KSEI continues to improve the Indonesia capital market image, which is transparent and reliable.  KSEI is also committed to create information transparency as well as to support the implementation of Good Corporate Governance in Indonesia capital market industry.  Those are the reasons why we launched AKSes Card,” she said. 

“AKSes Card is an online information tool that is provided to investors to access and monitor Securities and fund ownership data kept in Sub Securities Account in KSEI.  It is the right of every investor and Securities Companies are obligated to facilitate the making process,” added Margeret.

Concerning the real  benefit of AKSes Card that the investors can get, Margeret said,” Bursa Efek Indonesia will start implementing Single Investor ID in Indonesia capital market activities in 2012.  AKSes Card is the pioneer of such Single Investor ID as it indicates Single Investor ID number.  Besides, AKSes Card can become an integrated Securities monitoring tool.  Simply by having AKSes Card, investors can take benefit from its consolidated cross-link features to monitor ownership record of Securities owned in the forms of stocks, bonds, etc. which are kept in several Securities Companies in Sub Securities Accounts in KSEI.” 

“To invest comfortably in the capital market, Securities Companies are now required to provide AKSes Card to their investors.  There is no need for the investors to be worried about the utilization of funds or stocks owned as they can monitor them directly.  Therefore, it is recommended that the investors take advantage of this facility and check their portfolios regularly.  “Let us build a transparent, professional, and qualified capital market,” said Nico Omer Jonckheere, the Vice President Research and Analyst  of PT Valbury Asia Securities.

Adrian Maulana enthusiastically explained the reason why investors have to use AKSes Card.  “With AKSes Card, investors will no longer depend on reports released by Securities Companies.  They can perform independent monitoring by conducting regular checking through AKSes Card.  This facility provides transaction and mutation records of Securities kept in KSEI Sub Accounts up to the last 30 days.  Recently, cash funds can also be monitored through AKSes Card,” said Adrian. 

“Additionally, KSEI keeps simplifying the AKSes Card application through new facilities, such as AKSes Mobile features which can be applied in BlackBerry hardware,” added Adrian commenting the innovations KSEI has made. 

In line with the 100% target of AKSes Card ownership in 2011, which is the consequence of Bapepam-LK Regulation Number V.D.4, KSEI intends to improve the AKSes Card application.  Since the beginning of 2011, Pontianak experienced an increase in AKSes Card ownership by 41% and in AKSes Card application by 8%.  It is expected that the socialization can improve the number of AKSes Card ownership and application significantly.  Moreover, KSEI expects that Securities Companies can take greater role in conducting AKSes Card socialization. 

As of April 29, 2011, 1,127 of 3,208 Sub Securities Accounts in KSEI owned by Pontianak investors have owned AKSes Card.  Through it is not 50% yet, Pontianak is the city with the biggest AKSes Card ownership among other cities in Kalimantan.  It is due the existence of 15 Securities Companies in Pontianak, leaving it as the 12th city of AKSes Card ownership in province scale. 

AKSes Card is a realization of investors protection that provides positive image toward Indonesia capital market industry.  As the pioneer of Single Investor ID, AKSes Card, which was launched by KSEI, is expected to become the initial step for creating a conducive climate and investors’ trust to invest more actively in Indonesia capital market.  For information and complaint concerning AKSes Card, please contact Call Center 021-515.2855 or Toll Free 0800.186.5734 or send email to akses@ksei.co.id
