Indonesian Stock Exchange (Bursa Efek Indonesia) building in Jakarta, considered one of the oldest in Asia.

Indonesia Stock Exchange (Indonesian: Bursa Efek Indonesia, formerly Dutch: Vereniging Voor Effectenhandel) is a stock exchange based in Jakarta, Indonesia. It was previously known as the Jakarta Stock Exchange (JSX) before its name changed in 2007 after merging with the Surabaya Stock Exchange (SSX). As of December 2019, the Indonesia Stock Exchange had 656 listed companies,[2][3][4] and total stock investors were about 1.1 million, which is an increase of 30 percent from the previous year.[5]


Indonesia Stock Exchange was originally opened in 1912 as Vereniging Voor Effectenhandel in Batavia[6] under the Dutch colonial government, acting as a branch of the Amsterdam Stock Exchange (now Euronext Amsterdam). Initially there were 13 stock members in the exchange.[7]

The exchange was closed during World War I, and was reopened in 1925. Other exchanges was opened in Surabaya (as a predecessor of Surabaya Stock Exchange) and Semarang in the same year.[7]

The exchanges was severely impacted by World War II, with Surabaya and Semarang exchanges closed in early 1939, and Batavia exchange closed in 1942.[6]

After Indonesia gained its independence, stock exchange in Batavia, now renamed Jakarta, was reopened in 1952[7] by the issue of the Capital Market Emergency Regulations 1952 by the Minister of Justice Sumitro Djojohadikusumo. The Indonesian government bond was the only thing that is traded in the exchange.[6] However it was inactive again shortly following nationalization of Dutch assets as a part of West New Guinea dispute.

The current iteration was reopened by the New Order government in 1977. After being reopened, the exchange was under the management of the newly created Capital Market Supervisory Agency (Badan Pengawas Pasar Modal, or Bapepam), which answered to the Ministry of Finance. Trading activity and market capitalisation grew alongside the development of Indonesia's financial markets and private sector - highlighted by a major bull run in 1990. On 13 July 1992, the exchange was privatised under the ownership of Jakarta Exchange Inc. As a result, the functions of Bapepam changed to become the Capital Market Supervisory Agency. On 22 March 1995 JSX launched the Jakarta Automated Trading System (JATS). In September 2007, Jakarta Stock Exchange and Surabaya Stock Exchange merged and named Indonesian Stock Exchange by Indonesian Minister of Finance.[8] The current location of the Indonesian Stock Exchange is located in the IDX building in the Sudirman Central Business District, South Jakarta, near the current site of the Pacific Place Jakarta.


Both Jakarta Stock Exchange (JSX) and the Surabaya Stock Exchange (SSX) merged to form a new entity "Indonesia Stock Exchange" (Bursa Efek Indonesia).[8] After the merger, the new entity has seven directors.

Stock Indices[edit]

Two of the primary stock market indices used to measure and report value changes in representative stock groupings are the Jakarta Composite Index and the Jakarta Islamic Index (JII). The JII was established in 2002 to act as a benchmark in measuring market activities based on Sharia (Islamic law). Currently, there are approximately 30 corporate stocks listed on the JII.[15] The FTSE/ASEAN Indices were launched by the five ASEAN exchanges (Singapore Exchange, Bursa Malaysia, The Stock Exchange of Thailand, Jakarta Stock Exchange, and The Philippine Stock Exchange) and global index provider FTSE on 21 September 2005. The indices, covering the five ASEAN markets, are designed using international standards, free float adjusted, and based on the Industry Classification Benchmark (ICB). The indices comprise FTSE/ASEAN Benchmark Index and FTSE/ASEAN 40 tradable index. The FTSE/ASEAN 40 index is calculated on a real-time basis from 9:00 a.m. and the closing index is calculated at 6:00 p.m. (Singapore time). The FTSE/ASEAN benchmark index is calculated on end-of-day basis.

Besides Jakarta Composite Index and JII, IDX also has 4 more types of index, namely Individual Index, Sector Stock Price Index, LQ 45 Index, Main Board and Development Board Indices.[16]

At 12 May 2011 Indonesia Stock Exchange officially launched a new Indonesia Sharia Stock Index (ISSI), which comprises 214 Indonesian stocks which have been screened by the Majelis Ulama Indonesia (Indonesia Ulema Council).[17] Fatwa Number 80 from Indonesia Ulema Council is expected to make public no longer have any doubt to make sharia investment in the capital market to eventually increase the number of the domestic investors in the Indonesia Stock Exchange.[18]

IDX Custodian figure[edit]

On 7 June 2017, IDX Custodian noted that there are 1,000,289 investors based on Single Identification Number (SID) or increase by 12 percent in less than full 6 months.
