Along with growth in the mutual fund industry, Sujanto said that it has issued a new mutual fund instrument which is confirmed in OJK Regulation No. 34 /POJK.04/2017 regarding Time Target Funds.

The Time Target Investment Fund is a time-specific Mutual Fund and an investment policy that adjusts to that period.
