UNAIR NEWS – Speaking of investment, capital market in Indonesia exists as an alternative investment forum for the people of Indonesia. However, there are still some things that hinder the Indonesian people from investing in the capital market. One of them is the perception that investing requires a large amount of funds and can only be done by middle and upper class people.

With long-term expectations, funds managed by PUSPAS for education (scholarships, student exchange, and soft skill development ), research and development activities, infrastructure development, and social activities in UNAIR have added value. Both for PUSPAS, university and the general public.
Why should you invest?
Head of the East Java IDX Office Dewi Sriana Rihantyasni SE., MM explained that investment must be done. Because, it is a protection against inflation fluctuations, such as protecting wealth, increasing the value of future wealth, and anticipating future uncertainties in income.
Dewi asserted, investing in shares in the capital market has its own benefits in the form of capital gain, the profit from the difference in selling price and purchase price. Then, corporate action, consisting of dividends , bonus shares, stock split, buy back , and right issue. Then, GMS , invited to the general meeting of shareholders.
“So, we work with universities so that IDX can introduce the world of capital markets in UNAIR. Just like KSPM (Capital Market Study Group), ” she said.
Meanwhile, Dr. H. Leo Herlambang, SE., MM added that the formation of stock prices in the Indonesian capital market is the same as the mechanism for the formation of prices of goods and services in conventional markets in general. Especially, which is caused by demand and supply.
It turns out that buying and selling shares in the capital market is the same as buying and selling in traditional markets. There are goods, there are sellers, there are buyers, and there is a price agreement. So, he hopes that in buying shares, try the products that are used every day.
