INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Multinational insurance company, Allianz, invested USD 35 million or approximately Rp 481.63 billion in the last funding round of Go-Jek. Allianz channeled funding through its digital investment business unit, Allianz X.

CEO of Allianz X Nazim Cetin stated that the investment of Go-Jek is the first investment made by Allianz X in Southeast Asia.
