The collaboration with Bank Jago through a variety of innovative features makes investing easier and supports our efforts to realize this vision," said Bibit’s PR & Corporate Communication Lead, William.

Going forward, Bank Jago and Bibit will continue deepening the existing collaborations and create more innovative features.
