  • Discount Broker

Zerodha is Pioneer in discount broker concept in India. In 2010 Mr. Nithin Kamath started small company with few friends and staff. Nithin him self successful Professional trader for over a decade. He himself faced lot of problem as a trader and investor So he started Zerodha with vision of solve problem faced by investor and trader in India. Zerodha name derived from fusion of two words one from English ( Zero ) and 2nd from Sanskrit ( Rodha – Barrier. ) like Zero + Rodha = Zerodha ( Zero Barrier for trader and investor ).

Few hurdle and problem faced by Indian Investor and trader before Zerodha Started his venture.

  • High Brokerage.
  • Transparency in Brokerage and other cost.
  • Unauthorised trade by Relationship Manager
  • Online Trading Platform – Mobile Trading Platform
  • Simple and understandable contract note and Back office.

As Full service brokerage house charged premium brokerage to their client. And their brokerage depends upon case to case basis. No universal slab for client. provide relationship manager who manage portfolio on behalf of client. Full service provide tips and research report but don’t bother to educate client about trading and investment method.

Zerodha started his Broking business with Discount brokerage module where charges of brokerage are same for all clients whether they are big HNI client or small investor like student or housewife. Zerodha moto is transparency with this moto Zerodha is 1st broker in India. Who provide Brokerage Calculator where you can check brokerage as well as other cost before you can trade. No Brokerage Target to Relationship Manager mapped to you trading account. With this Zerodha address unauthorised trade problem which is biggest problem in Full service brokerage house.

Nithin knows very well that only Discount Brokerage is not only way to help investor and trader. technology innovation required for successful trader and investor.

Zerodha started his business with NSE NOW software. Which technically free for broker as well as client end. But charting and other technical tool not that adequate.

Zerodha launched his own in-house software to answer this query.
