One of the primary intentions of the new rule is to reduce regulatory requirements for some capital market investment products so that Indonesian investors relying on the Tax Amnesty Law would consider investing their funds in those investment products. Our client alert on the Tax Amnesty Law can be accessed here. What's New We set out below a summary of the key changes in the new regulation. Securities Account Opening. When opening a securities account to: 1. invest in mutual funds; 2. engage an investment manager in managing their securities portfolio (one-on-one fund management agreement); 3. invest in Asset Backed Securities (Efek Beragun Aset - "EBA") in the form of Collective Investment Contracts ("CIC"); 4. invest in EBA in the form of Participation Letters; 5. invest in Real Estate Investment Funds (Dana Investasi Real Estate - "DIRE") in the form of CIC; and 6. invest in securities traded on or outside the stock exchange, investors who have been granted tax amnesty must at least submit their tax amnesty decision letter as part of their account opening application to the financial services providers.

Financial Services 2 New OJK Rule on Capital Market Investment Products in Support of the Tax Amnesty Law August 2016 Funds Managed by Investment Managers. OJK Rule No. 26/2016 regulates several forms of mutual funds managed by investment managers. Below are additional provisions or changes for each form of mutual funds. Limited Participation Mutual Funds (Reksadana Penyertaan Terbatas - "RDPT") in the Form of CIC RDPTs in the form of CIC are regulated under OJK Rule No. 37/2014. OJK Rule No. 26/2016 provides more time to submit most of the supporting documents for the registration of RDPTs in the form of CIC than was provided in OJK Rule No. 37/2014. OJK Rule No. 26/2016 requires the supporting documents (except RDPT disclosure and the biography of employees of the investment managers) to be submitted at the latest 10 working days after RDPT invests in the target company. OJK Rule No. 26/2016 gives RDPTs in the form of CIC (i) more time to invest in the target company (i.e., up to 1 year after the registration date) and (ii) subject to certain requirements, a longer period to place funds in a deposit if RDPT has not made any investments in the target company (i.e., up to 1 year after the registration date). If an RDPT does not invest in the target company within that 1-year period, it must be dissolved (this was initially 6 months). For RDPTs that have not made any investments in the target company, OJK Rule No. 26/2016 has now increased the maximum amount of funds that these RDPTs may place in a deposit (i.e., may exceed 10% of the total net value of the mutual funds), provided that the funds are placed in a deposit of a designated bank appointed by the Minister of Finance ("Designated Bank"). One-On-One Fund Management Agreement OJK Rule No. 26/2016 stipulates a lower minimum amount of the initial fund managed under the fund management agreement (i.e., Rp.5,000,000,000). The previous minimum was Rp.10,000,000,000. OJK Rule No. 26/2016 now regulates that investments in deposit certificates can exceed 25% of the funds under management, if the investment is made in deposit certificates of Designated Banks.

Investment managers must now at least submit the following documents only: 1. The CIC of EBA. 2. The final draft of the prospectus (stamped and signed). 3. A specimen of EBA certificate. But investment managers are now required to obtain and keep certain documents related to the registration of EBA (including a legal opinion on EBA, financial statements of EBA and rating results of EBA).

The CIC, along with its digital format. 2. The prospectus (stamped and signed), along with its digital format.
