Jakarta (25 February 2014) – UBS hosted the annual UBS Indonesia Conference in Jakarta, bringing together international investors and high profile Indonesian companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange. Keynote speakers included Chatib Basri, Minister of Finance, Indonesia and Mahendra Siregar, Chairman of BKPM Indonesia Investment Coordinating Board.

Building on the momentum of investor interest in Indonesian companies, UBS presented the UBS Indonesia Conference on 25-26 February 2014 at the Mandarin Oriental Jakarta.

Since 2007, the annual conference has become the premier forum for corporate managers, policy makers, economists, strategists and investors to exchange insights on investment trends and developments in Indonesia.

Focusing on the theme “Catching The Next Wave”, the conference presented the market and sector opportunities of Indonesia in an important election year.

It has become one of the most highly anticipated financial events in Jakarta, with a registered attendance of 56 top Indonesian corporate clients and more than 200 institutional investors from Australasia, Europe and North America, a 35% increase from last year.

Joshua Tanja, Country Head and Head of Indonesian Equities and Research said: "The UBS Indonesia Conference aims to help Indonesian corporations and international investors develop closer partnerships. Institutions will gain direct access to senior management and develop deeper insights into Indonesia as an investment destination. Indonesian corporations will also have the opportunity to meet with investors and expand their shareholder base."
