Financial Market Players Take to the Course
The Association Cambiste Internationale Financial Market Association Indonesia held its annual golf tournament. The yearly event, entitled ACI Golf Invitational, was first hosted in February of 1982.
Attended by more than 130 golfers, the ACI Golf Invitational 2018 took place on the North and West Course of Royale Jakarta Golf Club. The field was comprised of financial market professionals from Indonesia who are members of the Association Cambiste Internationale, a leading, global financial market association. The ACI Golf Invitational is an annual tournament that has been running for over 30 years.
“ACI FMA Indonesia seeks to balance work activities with the social activities of its members through the field of sports, arts, and other social activities. We hope that the 2018 ACI Golf Invitational tournament can strengthen ties of friendship and communication between banking treasury dealers and money brokers who are members of ACI FMA Indonesia,” said Guntur Syahputra Purba, Chairman of the Committee ACI Golf Invitational 2018.
To ensure a lively atmosphere for the competition, the committee provided various hole-in-one prizes along with entertainment on the course and the Texas Scramble format was used.
“In order for the participants to be excited about attending in this tournament, creativity like this is absolutely necessary. We want to hold different golf tournaments. This year we are using the Texas Scramble format with system 36. This format is still unfamiliar to most tournament participants but in the end, the members of ACI FMA Indonesia who participated in this tournament welcomed it positively,” added Guntur.
ACI FMA Indonesia is a financial market participant association, particularly in the Treasury sector, which consists of Bank Indonesia, the foreign exchange and non-foreign exchange banks, and money brokers in Indonesia. At present, there are 1,255 registered members so multiple activities are arranged to help strengthen the relations between fellow ACI FMA Indonesia members.
