One indicator is required of these regulations is the minimum paid up capital of Rp25 billion company and has a complete management, especially the minimum required number of directors of two people.
"Today alone, they do not have a director in accordance with the rules because there was a dispute."
Currently, the main director of Optima Management Antony TP Siahaan's dispute with the Director of PT Optima Kharya Capital Securities Harjono Kesuma.
Anthony requested the resignation of the company when the case protruding KPD, but the resignation itself not allowed by Bapepam-LK. The resignation was made Harjono, whose also as chief commissioner of Optima Management, is an authorized official at the company.
Djoko said the company should be able to repay her debts to the customer because they afford funds to paid up the costumers.
Djoko also said KPD's from Optima Management could not take to another investment manager for restructuring because of the underlying asset in the form of the KPD was still not complete.
