PT Lautandhana Investment Management is targeting to manage IDR2 trillion assets this year, by launching four new mutual funds in 2Q/2013. Director of Investment Management Lautandhana Grace Wiragesang said assets under management this year is targeted to increase approximately 33% to IDR2 trillion from last year which was stood at around IDR1.5 trillion.
“Assets under management target in 2013 is approximately IDR2
trillion, from IDR1.5 trillion. If we calculated the increase is not
IDR500 billion, but it is likely around IDR850 billion as we have any
payment for our protected mutual funds," she told the business.
She said the target will be obtained by launching four new mutual
fund products, such as an Islamic mutual fund, a stock-based mutual
fund, and two protected funds.
She revealed that the first product, Reksa Dana Lautandhana Saham
Syariah, will be launched on January 9, 2013 through the Indonesian
Central Securities Depository (KSEI). This mutual fund can be purchased
through bank account debit with a minimum purchase of IDR200,000.
"The Company is targeting to collect around IDR100 billion from this
new product, specifically we target retail buyers around 100 people, and
for high end buyers about 25 people," she said.
According to her, Lautandhana chose to launch this Islamic mutual
fund in attempt to introduce Islamic-based mutual fund and to develop
such industry in Indonesia.
While two protected mutual funds and one equity fund will be launched no later than the second quarter of this year.
Grace claimed that she prefers equity fund because Lautandhan
considerably has an experience in managing equity-based investments.
Moreover, the public interest in this investment portfolio is still big
Meanwhile, the Company’s reason to launch protected mutual fund is
because the Government’s decision on the implementation of tax in this
mutual fund this year. According to him, the government took the policy
to delay the tax implementation in order to maintain the development of
the national capital market.
"One of the reasons we intend to launch a protected mutual fund is
the postponement of tax application in this mutual fund product. If the
tax applied by the Government then the product will not be interesting,"
