Do you have an idea what is Zerodha Varsity? I researched a bit on it, so sharing my thoughts.
Even with such a large population in India, only 2-5% of us invest in the market. Have you ever given a thought as to why? It may be due to lack of expertise or knowledge in those areas, or the fear of the unknown features of the market.
From our childhood, we learn our alphabets and slowly we start framing sentences, and over the period we start writing and communicating more efficiently. Similarly, we also need to learn about the markets to get a beneficial edge over the same.
So, how do we learn about the capital markets, the modes and method of investments? Nowadays in the market, there are so many user-friendly products. But even with all these products many of us find it difficult to understand complex concepts, and how to start investing in the same. This is when good education portals like "Zerodha Varsity" come to your rescue.
Let’s first know about the company which we are discussing today.
Zerodha is a Bangalore based company which started on 15th August 2010 is a trading company. It is said to be India’s largest and the best-rated trading platform. The company offers many products like:
1. Zerodha Streak: An online algorithm trading platform that requires no coding skills.
2. Zerodha Coin: A direct mutual fund platform that lets individual buy mutual funds online directly from the market.
3. Zerodha KITE: A trading platform that is developed by in-house Zerodha engineers which enables its user to trade directly at BSE, NSE, and MCX.
4. Zerodha Varsity: This can also be called as one of the products of Zerodha. Today I'll be discussing the same in details in this article.
