Any broker with less than 5,000-7,000 active clients will find their business unviable, he said.

“The brokerage industry is facing a number of challenges, including shrinking margins and rising compliance costs. These challenges are making it difficult for discount brokers and small ones to survive. Consolidation is taking place. Already four brokers have merged with us and another 2-3 brokers are in the pipeline,” Eureka Group executive director Rakesh Somani told PTI.

Smaller firms are often unable to generate enough revenue to cover their costs, while large brokers have the resources to comply with regulations and invest in technology, he said.

He was speaking on the sidelines of Financial Conclave 2023 on Friday evening, where Kotak AMC MD and Group  President Nilesh Shah, NSE Chief Business Development Officer Sriram Krishnan, NSDL Executive VP Prasant Vagal, Kedia Securities promoter Vijay Kedi were present.

“Things have been really tough for firms which have failed to invest heavily in technology and are not able to bring in other financial services under a single roof to acquire clients,” a promoter of a broking firm who merged with Eureka said on condition of anonymity.
