Ajaib is allowing Indonesians to easily invest/trade online; raises $90m | BEAMSTART News

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).

Ajaib lets Indonesians trade stocks and invest online

Similar to the US-based investment platform Robinhood, Ajaib is an online venue for Indonesians to trade stocks and invest in mutual funds through Ajaib Sekuritas and Ajaib Reksadana.

In the last four months alone, the firm has already processed over 10 million transactions, claiming to be the fourth-largest stock brokerage in Indonesia based on the number of trades.

Ajaib was launched in 2019 registered and monitored by the Indonesia Stock Exchange and financial services authority OJK.

Ajaib founders: Yada Piyajomkwan, Anderson Sumarli, and Kevin Lee.

Y Combinator and SoftBank also participated in the round

Ajaib claims that its recent funding round is also the largest funding round raised in Southeast Asia for a Series A round.

Along with Robinhood, huge companies including Y Combinator Continuity, Iconiq Capital, and Bangkok Bank also participated in the funding round.

Existing investors in Ajaib include SoftBank Ventures Asia, Li Ka-Shing’s Horizons Ventures, Alpha JWC Ventures, and Insignia Ventures.
