“This is part of our efforts to become a visionary company, continuing to provide innovations that are able to answer challenges in the future. By starting to apply AI, we support the transformation of business productivity not only for Investree but also for all supporting elements of the fintech industry , ”said Adrian.

Investree International Expansion Mission
Collaboration with local partners is believed by Investree to pave their way for international expansion. Even though it has been present in Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines, Investree is still working to strengthen its presence throughout the Southeast Asia region.
In the Philippines, Investree successfully secured a license from the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to operate an SME crowdfunding platform in the Philippines in mid-January. In collaboration with Filinvest Development Corp., this inauguration marks the first licensing issue for a company in the Philippines since the SEC released new implementing rules and regulations in 2019.
Meanwhile, Investree’s expansion in Thailand is in the process of obtaining full permission from the Thailand Securities and Exchange Commission. However, Investree Thailand has started operating by partnering with an e-procurement platform and B2B marketplace (Pantavanij), and a payment gateway company (2C2P).
“For international expansion, Investree still relies on collaboration with local partners in the form of companies with high reputations as the main strategy. This is also so that the benefits of Investree can be more easily accessed by people in the countries concerned, “concluded Adrian.
