How safe is it to trade with Zerodha?

Since its inception in 2010, Zerodha has become one of the most profitable stock brokerages in India. We offer equity investing for free and charge Rs 20/trade or 0.03% (whichever is lower) for intraday and F&O trades. As of April 2020, we have acquired 2.3+ million clients by word of mouth alone. We have never advertised anywhere, even online, though that is the industry norm. The stability of our revenue model is a product of how we manage risk and leverage technology.

We have a single risk management policy for all our clients. No special deals for anyone. Thus, the risk management system is lean and the probability of something going wrong is extremely low compared to the industry standard practice where certain high net worth clients get special risk rules.

The scale of our systems is not comparable to that of any other broker in India. During peak market activity, we broadcast over 16 million price ticks every second to clients who are logged in. In the last financial year, we processed close to one billion retail trades.
