TradeSmart is an online brand of VNS Finance & Capital Services Ltd. It is an online brokerage company offering trading services in equity, commodity, currency and derivatives across NSE, BSE, and MCX etc.

TradeSmart is a depository participant of CDSL. This allows the company to offer Demat account opening services to its customers. You can open a trading account and a Demat account at once with the company.

You can open a Demat account even if you already have one with another broker. SEBI regulations mandate that shares or other instruments can only be sold from the Demat account where it is credited. So, if you have bought shares and it is credited in a Demat account with another broker then you cannot sell it using the TradeSmart trading account as the company currently doesn't offer services for delivery selling from stocks held with another DP. You need to transfer the securities to be able to do so. Therefore it is advisable to open both, a trading and a Demat account.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. 1. What is a Trade Smart Online Demat account?

    A demat account is an online depository wherein securities like shares, mutual funds etc., are held in the electronic form. It works like a bank account wherein a unique number is assigned to you. Every time you buy shares or mutual funds, the securities are credited to your account and it gets debited on selling.

    The Demat accounts are managed by national depositories- NSDL and CDSL- and the brokerage companies only act as an intermediary between the depositories and the customers.



  2. 2. What is PoA for a Trade Smart Online Demat account? Why is it required?

    A power of attorney or POA is a written permission from you that gives specific rights to your broker in relation to your demat account. The right includes the debit/credit/block/create lien/pledge of your depository accounts and transfer or pledging of securities etc., held in the account. The PoA ensures that some demat activities like transfer and pledging of securities can smoothly happen online without the human intervention.



  3. 3. Do I need to open both a trading account and a Demat account to use the services of Trade Smart Online?

    Opening a trading account only with Trade Smart Online is enough to use its trading services. However, without a Demat Account from Trade Smart Online, you won't be able to sell shares held in the Demat account of your other broker using the Trade Smart's trading account.



  4. 4. What is an Inter DP transfer with Trade Smart Online?

    NSDL and CDSL are two national depositories of the country. A transfer of Demat accounts between the two depositories is called an inter-depository transfer.
