I.            Background
The background of this regulation issuance is to hold the growing demand for USD by expanding types of underlying transactions for foreign investors in order to give alternatives for hedging of rupiah exposure. It aims to provide flexibility for foreign investors desirous of currency exposure, whereas due to market instability, the foreign investors are reluctant to have any position in SBN and stocks. Foreign investors may remain conducting hedging through DNDF while awaiting market to be stable for re-investment. It is accommodated through the use of foreign investor’s rupiah accounts as an underlying transaction for purchasing DNDF in USD/IDR.
