The new infusion comes barely four months after Pluang bagged US$35 million in the round. With this, the total Series B investment raised by the company has touched US$110 million.

The fresh capital will be used to continue building its technology and expanding its offerings to more asset classes, such as Indonesian stocks and more global equities. Pluang also has plans to expand its services to other Southeast Asian countries.

Founded by Claudia Kolonas and Richard Chua while at Harvard Business School, Pluang provides easy access to micro-savings and micro-investment products in Indonesia. By logging into its mobile app, users can check or top up their accounts, make transactions or cash out anywhere anytime. Users can make micro-savings as low as ~US$0.50.
