Zerodha Coin, What is it ? Simplified

Zerodha Coin Information

The new COIN platform from Zerodha makes a revolutionary change on how the traditional SIP worked in India.

The Zerodha Coin platform helps you invest directly in the portfolios of SIP Asset Management Companies in India.

As a consumer, you can now buy directly from the manufacturer instead of approaching the wholesaler or the retail suppliers.

You as an SIP investor , buys directly from your SIP Asset Management Company (AMC).

With no middlemen involved, you can now invest in many of the direct mutual funds available on the platform. NO middlemen like the regular plans = You save on commission.

Traditionally with regular plans, the commission structure gets indirectly discounted in your total investment amount.

Now by using the direct plans on the Zerodha COIN platform you save on excess expense ratio.

No upfront or trailing commissions are charged for using the Coin platform for your direct SIP investment plans.

They allow you to use the COIN platform free of charge. Thanks to Zerodha for this great offering.
