ICICIdirect Vs Finvasia - NRI Account Advantages and Disadvantages

  ICICIdirect Finvasia
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.
  • Charges zero brokerage to NRIs on Equity, Derivatives and Mutual Fund.
  • Finvasia is a trading and clearing member. NRIs can save custodial charges given to 3rd party.
  • NRIs get access to many advanced trading platforms. Some are free while others have a subscription fee.
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.
  • Finvasia charges technology costs to provide access to some of the trading platforms.
  • It doesn't offer 3-in-1 account to NRIs. The NRIs have to open the NRI Bank Account with Yes Bank or Axis Bank.
  • Despite 3+ years in business, many products are yet to be launched i.e. Margin Funding.
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.

Finvasia is an excellent choice for frequent NRI traders as it doesn't change any brokerage fee. The online trading platform it offers is the industry standard. Advance trading tools are also available. It also offers Algo trading platform to NRIs. Finvaisa also provides demat account and clearing services at a very low price. Finvasia has offices in the UK and Canada.
