1. HDFC Securities[Price= Rs. 10,200 ]

This is the most trusted stock Broker in the Indian Stock Market carrying the legacy of HDFC from last 18 years. HDFC securities were founded in the year 2000 and are headquartered in Mumbai with branches across major cities and towns in India.

Future of Stock Broking In India

With the advent of Technology, the investment in the stock market is getting easier day by day as compared to 10 years back.  With the super cool trading apps, Algorithm Trading the interaction with broker has become very less which saves broker time, employee expense etc. and increase the profitability. The advent of Discount brokers in the past few years have completely changed the broking industry by leveraging the power of mobile and Internet to reduce the cost drastically for the investor. Today we can trade on fingertips with the mobile phone. With Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning brokers can easily identify the investment goals of the investors and can suggest investment ideas as per need. This will bring more people to the vicinity of Investment. However, as per statistics, only 3-4% of Indians invest in Market as compared to 30-40% in Developed Country. Therefore in the country like India the opportunity for the brokering business is huge, but with opportunity comes a competition, so to remain competitive in this market every broker needs to leverage technology for their advantage and who so ever use it will remain a leader in this segment.

Going by this, HDFC Securities is using “ PRO-terminal” , an Advance Trading Platform and “Digify” , a paperless Mutual Fund Investments to make it easy for users to do investment.

2. Paytm[ Price= Rs. 18000 ]

 Paytm is India’s Largest E-commerce Payment systems and a digital wallet company based out in Noida. The company was founded by Vijay Shekhar Sharma in 2010.

In the FY17-18, the company has incurred a loss of close to 1600 Cr to huge capital expenditure in creating a brand and establishing its business activity. The company is spending a lot to remain competitive in the market. If we go by the Unlisted Price of Rs. 18000 in the market, the Current Mcap of the company is close to 1 Lakh Crore. Recently, the share price surged as Warren Buffett-owned Berkshire Hathaway Inc. has invested an undisclosed amount in the company, in a rare deal for the world’s best-known investor who typically avoids internet firms.  The investment in the company by Great investors itself speaks about the company’s future prospects.

In the past we have seen how Flipkart which was started10 years ago has not generated a profit in a single year but sold to Walmart at Rs. 1 Lakh Crore which is the biggest business acquisition in the history of India. All the shareholders of the company become a millionaire overnight. So Paytm might be that opportunity again for the investors.
