One of FINA’s founder asked me to help him on his product development division, which was Design User Interface and User Experience Research. FINA aims to assist young couple or newlywed to invest their income into one of the most popular financial product, Reksadana.
When I took this job, I was really lay about financial technology. To tell you the truth, I hold a bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering which was not related at all with this project. To accommodate this barrier, we as a team intensively conducted meeting at least thrice a week. As mostly my team didn’t understand about design development, my job was to interpret their idea into a great user experience and sleek interface.
First time I joined the team, they were already underwent research to determine the user, go-to market strategy, persona definition, etc, almost everything is already done but the UI and UX design.
Education budget plan is also include in the top three family priority, as a result of increasing in educational cost for almost 15.1% each year. Unfortunately, investor return rate projection in Indonesia is just 4.5%, because most of investors are likely to deposit their investment in form of cash, like saving or bank deposits, as a main investment asset.
