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.
  1. Doesn't offer 3-in-1 accounts. Only offer 2-in-1 account combining trading and demat accounts. So, NRIs to first transfer funds from their PIS account to Angel Broking trading account before trading.
  2. Doesn't offer Mutual Funds to NRI customers.
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.

Angel Broking comes across as a decent choice for NRIs looking to trade in Indian stock markets. The company offers best-in-the-industry research services and trading recommendations to NRIs. It doesn't offer mutual fund investment services to NRIs. However, it charges a low flat-fee brokerage which makes it an attractive stock broker for NRIs.
