ICICIdirect Vs Tradeplus - NRI Account Advantages and Disadvantages

  ICICIdirect Tradeplus
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.
  • Experience of 15+ years in providing NRI financial services.
  • Offers a 4-in-1 trading account.
  • ESOP Trading is allowed for NRIs.
  • Margin trading and BTST (Buy Today and Sell Tomorrow) are offered for NRO Account.
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.
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.

Tradeplus is an excellent choice for NRI traders who want to trade using their NRO accounts. For such investors, the broker provides special facilities like margin trading and BTST (Buy Today and Sell Tomorrow) under NRO accounts which is not available with any other stock broker. The discount broker offers a 4-in-1 account in collaboration with Yes, HDFC and Axis bank which makes trading more convenient. However, the charges for call & trade services are on a higher side.
