IN 2021 has made a new history for the Indonesian capital market. A total of 54 issuers have made an initial public offering (IPO) on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) in 2021 with a value of fund raised amounting to Rp62.61 trillion,
The fund raised value is the highest fundraising value in the history of the IDX.
In 2022, the same trend is expected to repeat itself, given that companies and the public are increasingly optimistic about the acceleration of the national economic recovery.
Responding to the high public interest in buying shares of IPO companies, in early 2022, the Stockbit stock investment application has presented an e-IPO feature.
This feature allows retail investors in Indonesia to monitor the list of companies that will conduct an IPO and increase their chances of getting the share allotment allocation.

“As the founders of Stockbit often say, the opportunity for Stockbit users to be able to participate in the IPO is full online This is a form of our commitment in opening and expanding the access of the Indonesian people to the capital market,” said William, PR & Corporate Communication Lead of Stockbit in a press statement, Wednesday (16/3).
William added, the presence of the e-IPO feature on Stockbit is very relevant considering the IPO phenomenon which has recently become a daily conversation among the general public.
As is known, PT GoTo Gojek Tokopedia Tbk, which is the parent company of the collaboration of two digital companies created by the nation’s children (Gojek and Tokopedia), has held a public expose session on March 15, 2022 and is currently entering the initial offering stage.
This stage will take place from March 15 to March 21, 2022. Meanwhile, the price range for the company’s shares with the code $GOTO at this stage is IDR 316-346 per share.
“For the public and users who are interested in participating in the IPO of $GOTO and other companies, the Stockbit e-IPO feature can be an option because users do not need to fill out physical documents at all,” he explained.
“The good news is that all stages of the e-IPO can also be directly monitored on the Stockbit application without having to switch applications,” said William.
“For users who are taking part in the IPO for the first time, the process is also very easy because it is supported by clear instructions and a simple UI/UX,” added William.
The presence of the Stockbit application has a positive impact on the development of public participation in the capital market.
Previously, retail investors’ access to participate in primary market share orders was quite limited.
With the e-IPO feature, Stockbit hopes that more investors will be able to participate in a public offering. (RO/OL-09)
