Conclusion

Geojit is a highly recommended broker for NRIs residing in Middle East countries. It has 480+ offices and a dedicated Call Centre to offer quality services to NRIs. The company also offers strong research services to help NRIs make informed trading decisions. Other investment options including Mutual Funds, PMS and IPO make them preferred broker for many NRIs in the Gulf.

Zerodha comes across as a decent choice for NRIs looking to invest in stock markets in India and want to save on brokerage. The company offers best-in-the-industry trading platforms and tools. However, NRIs have to open bank accounts with HDFC Bank, Axis Bank, and Yes Bank to open a Zerodha NRI account. It also doesn't offer mutual fund investment services to NRIs. It charges a low flat-fee brokerage which makes it an attractive choice for NRIs.
