Unique Stockbroking franchise opportunity in India


Dear Patrons, Times are changing! The traditional way of doing business by old-school stockbrokers has been proven unsuccessful in the last few years as a result of industry consolidation among the top players, rising compliance costs and falling brokerage rates. The rise of online stockbroking (a.k.a discount broking) has disrupted the old-school stockbroking franchise model (sub-broker based expansion model) adopted by traditional brokerages which relied heavily upon physical expansion of branches across geographies to increase their business. They have been shutting shops on a wide scale. To understand the real impact, take a look at the figures below.

Time Period Sub-brokers Decine (YoY)
FY-2012 77,141
FY-2013 70,242 9%
FY-2014 51,885 26%
FY-2015 42,351 18%
FY-2016 >36,848 13%

Taking up a sub-broking license or a similar traditional model (Running an office, customer support, KYC, compliance etc.) has ongoing costs and is capex heavy for new entrepreneurs looking for meaningful money making opportunities. We understand the complexities involved in this model and have something completely different in store for you.

    i heard that u have some subbrokers, with one of them i have contact in whatsapp.
    i want remiser model of subbroker as i have not much resource. and mainly due to really amazing trading platform. i used many online and offline platforms to recomend fyers already.
    but one recent step dishearten me as u restructure ur brokaragae. as per ur previous brokarage as .01/.1 or rs 100/ which is lower with free call and trade was awesome and suit many traders and invester mainly. hope u keep that previous brokarage structure
    with preferably free call and trade. mainly i and many of my friend like percentage brokarage. u can charge slight higher as .02/.2 as another brokarage structure for some catagory of trader and invester along with ur present brokarage with rs 20/ call and trade. i just give my view
