Retail brokerage becomes dynamic
The retail brokerage segment has become more dynamic and has experienced significant disruption in recent years due to the growing importance of discount brokers. Competitively priced offerings from discount brokers and no-frills basic accounts and services have led to the realignment of pricing strategy across the industry.
Sainath Chandrasekaran, Assistant Vice President – Financial Industry Ratings, ICRA Ratings, added: “In addition to attracting clients from full-service providers, discount brokerages have helped expand the market by attracting a large number of young beginning investors.
“While the market share of traditional bank and non-bank brokers in terms of active customers moderated in FY21, primarily due to the faster rise of discount brokerages, they delivered a strong performance, as evidenced by healthy operating metrics and strong earnings growth.” he said.
