We are now the 3rd largest stock broker in India

April 10, 2018

Dear Clients,

We are now the 3rd largest stock broker in India in terms of active clients. Thank you for helping us achieve this in just under 8 years. I also want to thank the exchanges, especially NSE, for the NOW platform that was launched almost a decade ago, that helped kick-start our business. Not to mention, SEBI, for bringing in regulations that have ensured lower leverages/risk in the industry allowing a level playing field for all to compete with established businesses.

Source: Capitalmind (compiled using UCC data on nseindia.com)

We pioneered the discount broking model in India and are fortunate to have been able to scale it. Our growth and success is a testament to the viability and efficacy of our model and the integrity with which we conduct business. Not to mention, the recognition we’ve received over the years for our efforts.

Other than being the 3rd largest in terms of active clients, we are also probably the largest stock broker in India by retail trading turnover. We:

  • Contribute upwards of 8% of all retail trading volumes across exchanges.
  • Do upwards of 2 million retail trades daily, which would put us amongst the most active retail brokers globally.
  • Are in the top 20 investing related websites in the world.
  • We have over Rs 300 crores of our own capital in the business. We run a rewarding employee stock option program to ensure everyone working is also a stake holder.
  • Have invested in 8 different fintech startups through our incubator, Rainmatter, with the goal of expanding participation and bringing about innovation in the Indian markets.

Having said that, it has come to my attention that there are unscrupulous parties spreading rumours about our business on social media and other forums. I have put together a bunch of reasons on TradingQ&A on why safety shouldn’t be a concern when trading with us, should anyone be curious.

With our innovative technology and platforms, educational initiatives, and the Rainmatter startup partnerships, we are giving a shot at bringing in the next 10 million Indians to the capital markets. Like we always have, we continue to seek your support.

Wishing you all a lot of health, wealth, and happiness in the new financial year. 🙂

Happy trading,

Nithin Kamath

Founder & CEO @ Zerodha, team working towards breaking all barriers that I personally faced as a retail trader for over a decade. Love playing poker, basketball, and guitar. Getting body fat % in single digit is the next personal endeavor :) .

    Dear Sir,
    Found this confusing link which shows different picture which is being reflected. I just downloaded the sheet from https://www.nseindia.com/invest/content/arbitration_reports/report_1c_2015_16.htm
    Here is just filtered data
    SN NAME OF THE TM UCC OF ACTIVE CLIENTS
    1 ICICI SECURITIES LIMITED 560438
    2 HDFC SECURITIES LTD. 408059
    3 SHAREKHAN LTD. 335843
    4 INDIA INFOLINE LTD. 262930
    5 KOTAK SECURITIES LTD. 246945
    6 AXIS SECURITIES LIMITED 184325
    7 GEOJIT BNP PARIBAS FINANCIAL SERVICES LIMITED 177397

    14 EDELWEISS BROKING LIMITED 77459
    15 SMC GLOBAL SECURITIES LTD. 64231
    16 ZERODHA 61970

    I hope 3 does not mean 16th place at Zerodha. Indeed the stability of Kite 3.0 remains questionable, there is lot of stability which needs to be brought in.
    Hoping that a CEO does not make fool of the people replying in dark.

    Today was the first day i thought to use zerodha( i am currently using icici direct ), i transferred 1000 rs. to give a try and it reflected in my zerodha account instantly but when went ahead with the withdrawl option, it was showing zero account value under the ‘funds’ tab. Though i have contacted your support team and they ensured that the issue will be resolved but i request you to kindly ensure that this doesn’t happen again.

    btw CONGRATULATIONS TEAM ZERODHA.

    • Matti says:

      When you transfer funds, we only receive the funds on T+1, which is when you can withdraw them.

      • ARPIT says:

  154. HARDIK GANDHI says:

    Congrats Zeordha and team. Especially Nithin Kamath. Keep it up always. Do not change your (Company’s) performance values by the fame and wealth you gain with time…This always happens whenever a company gains enough wealth and fame they tend to lose interest in performance keeping. By this way ultimately there would be loss of customers and faith of them. So always be as you are for the sake of your company

    Dear Nitin Sir,
    Congratulations… Surely it will No 1..In coming day’s.Zerodha has given opportunity to retail traders to participate in equity..
    Ur hard work and visions now .. paying u.

    I had suffered accident and was bed ridden..Due to only zerodha..I was able to earn some amount to serve my daily needs.

    Again thanks .. For such great vision

  156. DNRAO says:

    Hi
    Impressive, Congratulations! Sure Zerodha may become number 1 soon.
    But for every business, the big question is……….how to stay there?
    Zerodha should have a “Think Tank” only to address this…..
    And even the Think Tank should be ‘refreshed’ every year/even 6Monthly.
    Becoz COMPLACENCY costs a lot
    All the best

  159. rajesh reddy says:

    Congrats sir..
    Please address this issue
    As stoploss and target are valid for only one day… Its difficult to check daily and keep stoploss and target daily.. Kindly keep stoploss and target for CNC orders (increase valiidity) or atleast keep an alert message option so that we can know that pricing is moving…
    Kindly consider my request
    Thank you

  167. Srinivas says:

    Congratulations. Hope Zerodha will be no 1 shortly.

  168. KIRAN BHAVE says:

    Great achievement!

    Dear Nithin! You’ve shown it to the world that Simplicity is most powerful than any Empire.

    The unique model you’ve created in this area is the sustainable growth.
    Other giants in broking are struggling to understand how a company can sustain with almost no brokerage! In fact, the taxes are more than the brokerage with Zerodha! Hats off to you! These giants thought that the discount brokerage firms will collapse on their own and cannot sustain.

    But you’ve marvelled the path for yourself with phenominal use of technology and creative business model to bring in win-win situation for your clients – investors/traders and the business itself.

    Though I’m just having association of 3 months, I really see the personal painstaking efforts in each of the client interface you have developed/created.

    I haven’t seen such robust systems even with these giant brokerage hungry companies.

    You have crossed Sharekhan and that actually makes you No.1 because HDFC and ICICI has a very wide PAN India exposure and access to largest customer base through variety of financial businesses – mainly through banking.

    Best wishes to you and Zerodha team.
    Celebrating success along with you

    Congrats to Mr. Nitin & entire Zerodha team. Always liked homegrown Indian technology. Proud to be an user of Zerodha. This is my 1st trding a/c. I am happy with software, app & support. Hope, continous technical upgradation will be adopted. Love to see Zerodha as No. 1.

  174. Prathap says:

    Congratulations Team Zerodha. Waiting to see in top.

  175. Bharat says:

    Super Congrats – Team Zerodha

    Yes, I agree, You are No 1 “Trading Only” Broker in the country (ICICI and HDFC are banks, and ICICI just listed ICICI Securities).

    How soon can we see a “Financial Advisory” services from you (with the same zest and simplicity). You have already launched Coin. How about something in Insurance, Trust and Wills etc… and help us be the one stop shop for “Financial Management”

    BTW, A few years back, I was thinking you would be bought out by a bank. It seems that you, now, can buy a bank should you want to 🙂

    • Matti says:

      We’ve consciously stayed away from the advisory space as there is no way for anyone to accurately predict the markets. If someone did know, they’d trade the markets rather than tell people what trades to take. Other services with time. 🙂

    • Bhuvanesh says:

      Hey Bharat. Thank you. Advisory is something we have consciously stayed away because that isn’t our forte. We have always believed in empowering users by educating them. As the saying goes “It is about teaching a man how to fish, rather than giving him one.”

  176. Elangovan says:

    All the best

  177. SL says:

    Good work guys. The platform has really evolved beautifully in the 4 years I’ve been on it.

    Would be even better if your customer service team became more effective in responding to customer tickets. I know one can’t have everything, but its okay to hope .. 😀

  178. GOKUL PRASAD THANGAVEL says:

    Congrats to Nithin and entire team of Zerodha, who had contributed for this success. I am happy to be the customer of Zerodha and I am satisfied with what I was expecting in late 2008. Thanks for all your service to the investor circle.

  183. GOKUL PRASAD THANGAVEL says:

    I want to add a comment as a recommendation to Zerodha. Please increase the intraday margin for other stocks as well in NSE and this will be helpful for the investors similar like MNCL.

  184. Uttam says:

    Thanks zerodha for services.

  185. Manish Kumar singh says:

    Congratulations for being 3rd largest stock broker in india…
    But the services u provide for mobile no changeover at kite application..why u charge for this.

  186. Prince shukla says:

    Option chain not present in kite app. Please provide it

  187. Ajay singh says:

    I personally love zerodah in trading, it is convenient and smooth in software, I thank the team for making zerodah best place for trading.

  188. Harish Nair says:

    Oh great!! Congratulations!! But your platform still does not take gtc orders. You have incorporated smallcase and other services.. but you need to place a stop loss or a take profit every day.. it’s an amazing platform if you do intraday but for positional trading I find it annoying and specially since I manage few accounts apart from mine.. and I brought them on to zerodha. And please zerodha team don’t give me an answer saying this is not provided by the exchange.. I bet the indicators you provide us is not provided by the exchange and you developed a solution. Be the solution provider we need. Concentrate on it.. that’s what made you 3rd largest.. now you bring all these other services so you can make money while the platform has just been the same.. putting makeup on an ugly woman will not get her the ms world title.. you should be really wondering why ain’t you sitting at number one instead of being happy about being the 3rd..

    • Bhuvanesh says:

      Hey Harish, I’d to think that Zerodha is a pretty woman. GTC/GTD orders are complex because of we essentially have to maintain a layer to store these orders. Having said that we are working on them.

  189. Santhosh Kumar says:

  191. Aarav says:

    Hi Nitin, Karthik, Hannan.

    I still remember when I opened my account last year & when I spoke to Hannan Delvi in 2013 to come on board and join your mission, still nascent and getting bootstrapped.

    This is testament how good product platform speaks for itself and how the power of varsity is coming into play for clients. And Zerodha hasn’t spent a single penny on marketing. Power of WoM. Go figure.
    And to challenge behemoths like HDFC, ICICI. More power to you guys. Hats off.
    I’m sure a lot of disruption is due in thr next decade once blockchain technologies enter the industry but you guys are nothing short of a wonder story. Cheers.
    Wish you all the best.

  192. Anshul says:

    Everything is going great except some of the things that are still not there to the mark like sudden technical glitches which happens every now and then. Apart from that notification for order placement or completion should be added which is still missing and price alert long ago. Please work on these things.

    Apart from these things everything is great.

  225. Ravindran says:

    Hi ,
    Greetings for the day,
    Congrats and Thanks to Zerodha Management and Team,
    I would like to share you my opinion about reaching the new customer. When the public interested ( even not interested )about the market, banking securities easily catching the client and pushing into the market, not explaining the charges and services. Why zerodha is not approaching directly. You are giving best service, before knowing your service we struggled with 2 to 3 brokers and get the bad experience and quit the trading & Investment. It’s eating the time and losing the hope about the market. Also once we found you and taste your service, not able refer others orally. Please make the advertisement video from your side and upload in youtube. It will easy to found you the beginners and refer to others. Because I belong from rural I had struggled 2 years before found you.

    I expect what you feel about that.

    Regards,
    Ravindran.S

  226. Pravlika says:

    Great going team. I am confident that next year Zerodha will be on first position.

    I hold A/C with Zerodha since 2013. The Kite platform is fabulous, simple & very easy to use. Because of this i have continued to remain as an active user. Please don’t add any extra feature as suggested by few clients as it will make it complex; instead I will suggest to have an another app for all other services provided by Zerodha. There are few Pros & Cons with Zerodha too but this is not the post to highlight them.
    Finally I will say Congrats to all of us (clients) as we only make this come a reality. Congrats to Team Zerodha.💐💐💐.👏👏👏.

  267. Atul rathod says:

    Congrats esp to Nitin who conceptualized the idea of the business model & the whole team without which it would not have reached such a height in such a short period.Having 4-5 a/cs since 3 years now,we experience development of laxity in solving our non-routine querries.Since last more than one year,we have been requesting to provide contract notes with scripwise/trade wise levies,but not complied with.Actually you are supposed to do it if client requests for it & such mention is made by all the brokers in their contract notes mandatorily.We have experience of HDFC SECURITIES immediately complying to the client’s such request even accepting such a request as a standing instruction.But Zerodha has failed to do so despite our repeated approach & has failed to give a satisfactory reply.SO USING THIS PLATFORM TO GET A SATISFACTORY RESOLUTION.

    • Bhuvanesh says:

      Hey Atul, we are moving our backoffice to a new in-house platform. We should have tradewise contract notes available in the next couple of months.

  268. CHENNA KONDAIAH says:

    Congratulations to Zerodha Team.Best of luck.

  269. Manish Chakraborty says:

    Awesome !! I was wondering when this would happen. Afterall with all the unique, productive and reliable platforms that Zerodha has made available to the retailers in the last few years its no Surprise that Zerodha is #3 broker in India. Soon to be #1 i presume. Who knows. With the amazing progress that Zerodha has made in such a little time attaining #1 Broker in India shouldn’t be a big deal from here. Anyways its really nice to see this. Congratulations to the whole Zerodha team. May you continue to do the good work.

  270. JAYANTINAG says:

    Congrats to all members of Zerodha… I am very happy to join in Zerodha. I always think as a member of Zerodha family. I am always try to give advice to my friends and family members to D-mat account open in Zerodha. But I have compiled to you..please available more contact numbers which will close our relationship to you. And another one is when I am giving a reference to you, please try to call immediately and try to help them to open account. Otherwise they thought you could not give best service as other companies always try to communicate with them. Ok congratulations again for you no no..our success.

  276. Shaikh says:

    But I think Zerodha need to streamline operation issues and to train the staff. In my case at the of account opening, I got mail that I need to submit KYC form to update my address. I called my executive Mr. Arjun Majunath and I asked him whether the photo is needed on KYC form or not as they just need to my address. He replied that photo is not needed on KYC form and even I had sent soft copy of KYC before the couriering it. They have not raised any objection to a soft copy too. Now they are saying My form is kept on hold as a photo is not pasted on KYC form.

    I wish to congratulate and at the same time request you to improve support activity.
    I have changed my account from HDFCSEC to Zerodha, two years ago and am happy about the kite platform.
    However, response from the support team, some times, I find irrelevant and confusing.
    I am yet to receive correction and clarification regarding excess debit done in the ledger ( more than a week ago).
    Twice payout was done in the ledger whereas credit to my account was done only once on 3rd april 2018.
    I am unable to understand why such issues are not taken up on priority and sorted out as the balance is the major issue for an account holder.

  282. Manmohan says:

    can you please give us the same day trading facility like future plus and option plus of icicidirect where we can short sell options with very little margin which is very useful on expiry days, thank you.

  283. Jagan says:

    No..1 follows soon..when zerodha complies with integrity of itself and its customers. Cheapest(sorry.. economical) but with quality brokerage firm. Success is guarantied.. if not… case study why even this kind of firms fails…
    Free CNC trade, even customer hesitate to demand from free service provider… but ZERODHA has not hesitated to give service…When you be free, please don’t compromise…

    Gr8 going 🙂 Congrats ………..

    Credit goes to all Zerodha team. Gr8 apps in market terms.

    Thanks for providing best tools. Keep it up.

  285. NK JAIN says:

    Dear Mr. Kamath,
    1. It is a grrr8 achievement indeed but not surprising.
    I trust Zerodha will be number 2 in 2018 and Numero Uno by 2020.
    Wish Zerodha Team all the very best.
    2. ICICIDIRECT is biggest looter that, of late, investors have realized and they are running away from the clutches of ICICIDIRECT. It is therefore surprising that how there can be such a steep growth in number of customers of ICICIDIRECT as shown for latest year in the table that hardly can be believed. ..Something is wrong in the data.

  286. Karan Nair says:

    Good to see the achievement by Zerodha team. One can go with Zerodha for investment but when it comes to trading still lot of improvements required….

    Happy to see the achievements of Zerodha!
    My hearty congratulations to Team Zerodha!

    Dear Sir,

    I want to invest ETF fund. But I do not know how to trade on various ETF, which are available on NSE. I have notice that some ETF scripts are available on Zerodha plate form such as (1) ICICInifty i.e. icici prudential Nifty ETF (2) SETFNIF50 i.e. SBI ETF nifty (3) BHARATIWIN i.e. BHARAT22 ETF. Kindly inform me the following query-

    (i) Can I trade on these scripts just like a equity cash.
    (ii) What is the Brokerage charges
    (iii) Is there any expire date on these scripts, like option trading
    (iii) Is there any lot size for buying & Selling.
    Thank you

      1) Yes, you can
      2) The same brokerage as equity.
      3) ETF is just like a mutual fund listed on an exchange.
      4) No lot sizes.

      Also check this post.

      • Dipak Das says:

        Sir,
        Sorry sir, I have another query . Can you inform me what are the advantages of buying ETF on Zerodha platform than directly buying ETF from its issuing company’s website as for example buying ICICInifty from ICICI website.

        Thank you

          Hey Dipak, unlike buying a mutual fund directly from the AMC site, you need a demat account to buy an ETF. So you cannot buy it directly from the AMC and site and you will have to do it through a broker. What’s more at Zerodha we charge 0 brokerage on delivery. 🙂

  289. Shahbaz ahmed says:

    A big congratulation to All the Zerodha’s Employees and the CEO for there effort to take the company to that place.
    I’m trading with you people from last 2 years,, as per the brokerage i’m satisfied and but when its come to the issue’s which we face during the market hours its really hurts more than anything else.
    The latest on 12th April 2018 the technical issue which occurred its just shrink the mind.
    I takes lots of time to build the trust and to make a good trusted company but i doesn’t take a seconds to take away all this from the hands.
    I hope this message is clear.
    I have seen lots of times technical issue arise, all i want to request you please have a look onto this technical issue or else i’m totally satisfied with your product and your hardwork.
    Once again Congratulation for the achievement

    Congrats Zerodha, Nithin & Karthik!

  291. sunil singh says:

    Congrats Team Zerodha, I am associated with you from 2010 (DS0518) and very happy with your service which is day by day is increasing.
    I am having some suggestions for you if it is implemented then it will be better for customers:
    1) please provide IPO purchasing power..
    2) During Instant money transfer from bank to zerodha should be free at present it is chargeable..
    3) Mutual fund investment with the fee Rs 50/ per month is not justified..it should be only one time fee like 100 or 200 only…

    God bless to all team ZERODHA….

  292. Nitin Jain says:

    Hi,

    Congrats guys, But just curious as being climbing miles I see you that leaving your old values behind. Most of your blogs / tutorials are outdated…. no site upgrades? no blog upgrades?

    Love to see you world class broker with world class technologies, charts, studies, software, sites and services and far ahead then no 1 position in India. Soon.

    Regards
    Nitin Jain

    • KIRAN BHAVE says:

      Can you be specific? I find the software/charts also much superior than BIG brokers.

      • Nitin Jain says:

        I am not denying that Zerodha software doesn’t have good features, My point is that to be world class still Indian brokers needs to have updated features like Interactive Broker has. Zerodha needs to improve on its desktop software to be ahead in competition what we have on kite is not there on PI and it needs to be improvise for intraday trading or scalping.

        Zerodha got larger client base because first of all it is discount broker and less brokerage and few advanced features but to be no 1 it needs to improvise a lot on software features to be world class and customer care.
        (I am basically practicing intraday trading and hence have comparison on that basis.) Now a days many sites/brokers are coming with similar features and Zerodha needs be much ahead from them to be top in competition. also it should consider its services and compare themselves from world rather only in India. Though I congratulate them to gaining their position.

        few points if you like to consider .
        1, Customer care not support when we need it most. Like I lost my most of the capital on a trade where in BO order only Buy order executed and sell and SL orders cancelled because Zerodha’s lease line connection was dropped with exchange(what has been told to me by Zerodha support). After placing order it all freezes and when I saw issue, I tried 2 hrs to connect to Zerodha customer care with no success and then finally was not able to square off my position by myself but was done by Zerodha risk management team.

        2. As I said Pi Software is lacking features in terms of kite. I know people moving on cloud but practically we need to have fast analysis of our position, stock scanning, fast entering of orders (with shortcut keys of course). Latest indicators etc.

        3. Kite has advanced features but not that easy and fast to trade and to see charts.

        4. combining everything on a portal rather different sites would be a much easier for user point of view.

        5. Zerodha mention that they want to educate traders so expecting updates related to education on different plateform like intraday, scalping, technical analysis for short term trading etc more frequently then what they have right now.

        But I should mention that Zerodha has one of best reporting for P&L, TAX, positions and light weight software. I don’t know if I am contradicting myself and how Zerodha will make its software light but powerful.

        No1 position holder is charging much higher brokerage but actually what I personally feel that people trust on its services so far…..

        I know I am not explaining in better way but I hope all experienced trader and even Zerodha should be able to get the point I am trying to make.

        Not a complaint but advise…… 🙂

        Regards
        Nitin

    Congrats Nithin and Zerodha team. Keep it up. Hoping to see u at first soon.

  295. Shanta Munot says:

    Many congratulations to the Zerodha team. Unfortunately though the 3rd largest stock broker still does not provide ‘Good Till Cancelled’ (GTC) order feature. What a bummer!

    Another area where Zerodha’s low cost model can make a huge impact would be to launch Index Funds & ETFs similar to what Vanguard did in US. This will surely elevate Mr. Nithin Kamath’s stature to that of Jeff Bogle who even Warren Buffett claims have done more for American investor than anyone else!

  296. Ravindra K says:

    congrats 4 ur achievement
    hope to see u grow further
    just improve network stability, customer care
    there shouldn’t bi order execution problem
    make sure u have more server to handle pressure situation
    hope u understand what I m saying
    like to see positive words about u from ur active trader in future on social site

  297. Puneet says:

    Team Zerodha, Your work reflects excellence and you think simply like a trader…… that is the reason your customisation has so many followers…. Keep the great work.

    Leave the leader miles behind, you all have in you the competence

  298. Tanmay says:

    I must say I recognized this much before this day. I joined in 2011. I have tried other platform they sucked and charged high, I researched for some good platform, I am proud of my research. I recognize this company in the streaks of (Jio, Xiaomi, Tesla, AAP) i.e. breaking a corporate nexus, a long running trend, where nobody would choose to stride due to fear of failure. I must say ICICI and HDFC securities are nothing in front of you. Actually you are already ahead of them, since majority of their client base is converted from existing bank accounts user base.

    Some key points I would like to bring where zerodha has been awesome.
    1. Innovation. Hats off guys, the amount of innovation I see coming from you guys is mindblowing. (Varsity, coin, pi, streak, kite etc.)
    2. Upgradation, upgradation. You never limited yourself to legacy systems, trying to uselessly scale them. Usually tech companies fail here. You changed your backoffice, desktop, mobile, web platform and kept on improving them)
    3. No marketing, no useless calls, research reports etc., a Relationship manager sitting on my head telling me how and what to do.
    4. Minimal fees.

    Some things you definitely need to improve or can provide to become Indias unbeatable.
    1. IPOs, IPOs pls (ICICI, HDFC 🙁 )
    2. Option strategies, leg orders. (Currently none in India)
    3. Advanced algorthmic execution orders. (Scaled, TWAP, VWAP, GTC, one click, depth scalper, etc.)(Currently none in India)
    4. Glitches, margin reduction etc. during high volumes, volatility.
    5. Cryptos (Not sure with current Indian/RBI stance, but if you have had it when iron was hot, boom, believe me man, you would have been one of the richest individuals of India, there would have been such a huge volume from India, and it is so easy to implement, what stops you.) (None of these HDFC, ICICI honchos and time and thinking of young generation.)

  300. M. Vasudev Rao says:

    A lot of money must have been paid by me all these 12 years towards brokerage charges and i checked my trade charges in zerodha twice. I was unbelievable to see the paltry amount i had paid in zerodha. Besides, transfer of amount to your a/c is easy. However, i would suggest you to start a small case for contrarian investors who are many. The varsity is really wonderful.

  309. Rahul says:

    I have suffered huge losses on this platform. This is because of malfunctioning of zerodha’s candles and charts. Lot of indicators on zerodha are incorrect and cause huge losses in intraday. Example – supertrend indicators go blank even after a confirmation of 2nd candle is given. this is exactly why historical data on zerodha charts looks great but actual data on charts is hugely flawed. it is probably one of the most incorrect charting tools on this platform and I am surprised how such flawed carts are allowed to publish for users. I have been trading since 10 years and since the time I have started using zerodha for intrady most trades have given false indicators.
