INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The Financial Services Authority (OJK) is committed to continuously strive to develop syariah capital markets so as to contribute to improving national financing capabilities.

"What is certain is our allegiance to Shari'ah, especially since the government has established a National Committee on Islamic Finance (KNKS), which is led by the President and Vice President of Indonesia," said Hoesen, Head of OJK Capital Market Supervisory, Friday (17/11 / 2017)

Currently, further Hoesen, it has several initiatives in order to support the development of syariah capital market that is to start doing education to certification of sharia profession. Currently, sharia-based capital market products that have grown include stocks, bonds, asset-backed securities (EBA) and mutual funds.

He acknowledged the portion of sharia products in the capital market is relatively smaller than conventional, but in the future will continue to grow in line with the needs of investors to invest their funds in sharia products.

"However, there is still a perception problem from investors, investors are asking for 'yield' of sharia products higher than conventional.If it is because of the need, do not have too high expectations, because it basically buy sharia products based on the contract not because it believes the investment is 100 percent higher than conventional," he said.
