ICICIdirect Vs Ventura - NRI Account Advantages and Disadvantages

  ICICIdirect Ventura
Pros
  1. India's leading stockbroker. Part of the prestigious ICICI group, a financial services conglomerate.
  2. ICICI 3-in-1 NRI Account offers the easiest online trading experience.
  3. It offers an online trading facility with automatic fund transfer and PIS reporting.
  4. Invest online in Mutual Fund, NCD, FD, IPO, etc.
  5. GTC (or GTD, VTD) and AMO order types are available for placing orders in non-trading hours.
  6. It has a very stable trading platform.
  • Full-service broker with personalized services.
  • Tie-up with Axis Bank for convenient NRI Banking Services.
  • Presence in Dubai with clients in US/ UK / Australia / East Africa etc
  • Provides in-depth research tips for NRIs.
  • Offers a dedicated NRI customer care desk to resolve queries.
  • NRIs can access their portfolio, transaction statements and investment account 24/7.
  • Invest in Equity, Mutual Funds, Debt Funds, NCDs, Bonds etc.
Cons
  1. While ICICI trading platform gets the job done, it is very old trading software with poor user experience in comparison to the next generation online brokers like Zerodha, upstox, and 5paisa.
  2. The equity delivery brokerage is higher in comparison to discount brokers like Zerodha. With ICICI, a buy order or Rs 1 lakhs will cost Rs 1250 (1.25%) in brokerage. The same order at Zerodha cost Rs 200 in brokerage.
  3. NRIs from the UK (United Kingdom) cannot invest in IPO and Mutual Fund through ICICIDirect.com
  4. ICICI Bank doesn't offer online account opening to NRIs apart from customers from the US. Online account opening is also not available to Minor NRIs from the US.
  • Doesn't offer a 3-in-1 account as Ventura doesn't provide banking services.
  • You cannot place GTC (Good-till-Cancelled), After Market Order(AMO) and Buy Today Sell Tomorrow (BTST) orders with Ventura securities.
  • Higher brokerage charges in comparison to discount brokers.
  • High brokerage on Mutual Funds investments.
Conclusion

ICICI is a highly recommended trading account for NRIs who are looking for investing in the stock market and mutual funds in India. It offers a convenient way to invest with competitive brokerage charges. It offers a range of investment options along with a dedicated RM, NRI support desk, free research, and tips. GTC and AMO order helps NRI customers to place an order in their own convenient timings.

Ventura is a full-service broker that offers personalized services, research, and recommendations. It also provides online trading platform to NRIs. The brokerage charges are on the higher side. Ventura also doesn't offer GTC, AMO and BTST orders which make it difficult for NRIs to place orders in off-market hours.
