Indonesia's Ajaib has big plans to become the Robinhood for Southeast Asia, growing tremendously over the past 2 years.

The firm has just raised $90 million in an extended Series A round after raising $65 million led by Robinhood, and $25 million back in January (first close).

According to Ajaib, the new funds will be used to support the growth of the firm’s product development and engineering, as well as expanding its reach across Indonesia (and region).
