TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The labor division of the Social Security Agency (BPJS Ketenagakerjaan) will invest the asset under management (AUM) of its pension insurance program on state securities.

We will invest more on government bonds and SOE bonds as well as long-term corporate bonds," the agency's president director Elvyn G. Masassya said earlier Wednesday, September 2.

Since the implementation of its pension insurance program on July 1 this year, BPJS Ketenagakerjaan has noted 1.1 million workers participating in the program.

By the end of 2015, the agency expects to see that number increase to 3 million workers.

Under PP No.55/2015 on the Amendment of Regulation No.99/2013 on BPJS Ketenagakerjaan's Asset Management, the agency is allowed to invest AUM in a number of financial instruments including bonds, state securities (SBN), Bank Indonesia certificates (SBI), and IDX-listed corporate bonds.

BPJS Ketenagakerjaan can also invest its pension fund AUM in other financial instruments including mutual fund, asset-backed securities, real estate, land/building/property, repos, direct participation, and municipal bonds that are traded in the IDX.
