Zerodha is one of the leading and most popular stock brokers in India, with a massive client base created over years. Beginners often prefer trading with the cheapest brokers, and Zerodha, with a flat fee model at Rs 20, fits perfectly in this parameter. Additionally, Zerodha also provides online education apps, support portal, and discussion forums which prove to be of great assistance to beginner level investors. However, Zerodha being a discount broker does not assist with research, advisory or recommendations. This makes it a challenge for new investors who often find it difficult to make these decisions.
Overall, considering the many helpful services it offers, Zerodha can be considered as a good option for beginner level investors.
