The Asia Tech Podcast had an enjoyable and interesting conversation with Claudia Kolonas, a Founder of Pluang, an all-in-one investment app that is meant to promote financial inclusion in Indonesia.

Some of the topics Claudia and I covered:

  • Financial literacy on the road to financial inclusion
  • Many Indonesians are introduced to finance on Facebook and Instagram
  • The impact of ‘influencers’
  • Making an investment should have low monetary barriers to entry and should be frictionless
  • How her background help shaped her views on financial inclusion
  • The importance of portfolio diversification across varied asset classes and currencies
  • Both commodities and crypto have a proper place in a portfolio
  • Harvard Business School and “Business at the Base of the Pyramid”
  • The importance of liquidity and compounding
  • Building a company culture of experimentation
