SOCIALIZATION AND TRAINING ON IMPLEMENTATION OF INVESTMENT SELECTION STRATEGIES
There are only 29.66% of Indonesia population who really understand and know about financial products and services. From this number, those who truly understand the capital market are only 4.4% and those who invest in the new capital market are around 0.4%. That number is very low if we compare to neighboring countries, for example in Malaysia, the population participating invested in capital market has reached 3.8 million or 12.8%. While in Singapore 1.5 million or 30% of the population has invested in stock market and in China 100.4 million or 13.7% of the population has invested in the stock market. There are only small number of people who invested in the Indonesia stock Exchange, it means there is a big potential to increase the number of investors in IDX. All parties, not only governments and IDX must conribute to encourage people to invest in the capital market. Therefore, the community needs to be given knowledge about what types of investments can be chosen, especially those on the IDX, how to invest, how to assess the performance of the investment, and the risks that may arise.
