ICICI Direct Vs Prostocks - NRI Account Advantages and Disadvantages

  ICICI Direct Prostocks
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.
  • Prostocks charges a flat fee of Rs 100 per executed order which is the cheapest fee charged by any broker in India.
  • Traders can choose from in-house trading platforms or NSE NOW software to trade as per their convenience.
  • Demat and Trading accounts at Prostocks are lifetime AMC free.
  • NRI customer doesn't require separate Custodial Account to trade in Equity F&O. Prostocks is a registered clearing member who can get the CP code for NRI and clear the trades. This offers a huge saving for NRI customers.
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. An NRI has to open an NRI Bank Account before opening a trading and demat account.
  • GTC (Good Till Cancel) and AMO (After Market Order) not available.
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.

Prostocks offer online trading service at the cheapest brokerage rate to the NRIs. It has partnerships with 5 popular banks in India to offer NRI trading. The free account opening and AMC free demat & trading account is an added advantage for the NRI customers. Prostocks doesn't provide research and advisory service. It suits well for frequent traders who execute 100's of trades daily.
