Highest Quarterly and Yearly Client Addition

The company registered the highest ever quarterly and yearly gross client addition of approximately 1 m and 2.4 m clients in Q4FY21 and FY21, respectively.

This translated into significant market-share gain in NSE active client base, overall average daily turnover (ADTO) and overall retail equity turnover market share.

In Q4FY21, overall ADTO increased 66% QoQ to Rs 37.5 bn from Rs 22.6 bn in Q3FY21.

The company is one of the largest retail broking houses in India, in terms of active clients on the NSE.

Here's what the company's management had to say about the growth in client base:

  • "In spite of the substantial clients added by the industry over the last few quarters, India still remains a highly underpenetrated market w.r.t financial inclusion as compared to USA or China, especially in the smaller cities and towns.

    Therefore, the ongoing growth shall remain sustainable in the foreseeable future, with Fintech brokers like us garnering a significant share."

Board Approves Setting Up an AMC

Earlier this month, it was reported that the company's board has approved setting up an asset management company (AMC).

The proposal is subject to the necessary statutory approvals required from various regulators including the Indian market regulator.

The company said it expects to capitalise on the growing investible wealth in India. The amount to be invested in the AMC business will be decided and approved by the board.

The mutual fund industry has seen a big jump in investor base and asset growth over the last year. The industry added more than 8.1 m investor accounts in 2020-21, taking the total tally to 97.8 m.

These 3 Stocks are the Dark Horses of the Stock Market

The mainstream media mostly ignores them.

Mutual funds and hedge funds can't buy them in bulk.

Stock brokers rarely cover them.

These stocks are the dark horses of the stock market.

They only come in limelight after they have rallied by hundreds or even thousands of percent.

Our head of smallcap research, Richa Agarwal, has a knack for identifying such stocks before they begin their rally.

Over the years, she has spotted such stocks which have gone on to offer triple and even quadruple digit gains for investors. (* Past performance is no guarantee of future results)

Today, when the markets are near all-time high... and some investors are thinking of booking profits... Richa has spotted 3 such stocks which are set for a massive rally.

She will reveal the details of these 3 stocks on 28th June at her free online summit.

Outlook of Stock Broking Industry

Dinesh Thakkar, CMD of Angel Broking, believes the ongoing momentum in the stock broking industry will last for at least 5-10 years as the market penetration is very low in India.

  • "The boost that the broking industry has got is because of digitisation and people coming from Tier-II and Tier-III cities. CDSL grew by around 35% this year but 75% of the contribution in incremental clients came from digital players like Angel Broking.

    Look at the under penetration of equity market in India. Today our penetration is hardly 4% and China, Korea have around 12-13% while US is around 32%. So I think there is enough headroom to grow for digital players like us."

India Financial Brokerage Market Report 2021

The brokerage market was valued at Rs 135 bn in FY16. In FY20, it reached Rs 210 bn from Rs 195 bn in FY19, expanding at an annual growth rate 7.7%.

The industry gained popularity, owing to a significant increase in trading activities. Financial brokerage firms have generated revenues from stocks, commodities, and currency.

Major players operating in the market include Angel Broking, Geojit Financial Services, ICICI Securities, and Kotak Securities.

In FY20, full-service brokers held the highest market share of the overall broking industry based on NSE active clients.

The pandemic resulted in a significant meltdown in the stock market. Improved financial awareness led to a 130% growth in demat account openings.

Indian stock markets saw an addition of 11 m new demat accounts in the past twelve months. These comprise a fifth of all demat accounts in the country today.
