What is Demat account and How to Open It at Asthatrade?

Demat Account is very much similar to a bank account which hold securities (shares) instead of money. However, unlike a bank account, your Demat Account need not have a ‘minimum balance’ of any sort.

Demat Account is used to hold shares and securities in dematerialised or electronic format. Dematerialisation simply means converting hard paper in digital format. Hence when you buy shares or any other securities, instead of giving you the papers or certificates in physical form it is converted to electronic form so as to increase their accessibility. Demat Account is used for the process of holding investments like shares, bonds, government securities, Mutual Funds, Insurance and(Exchange Traded Fund) ETFs.

Asthatrade demat account is registered with the well-known depository NSDL(National Securities Depository Limited). So, directly you will be part of NSDL depository once you open an account with us. Any stockbroker or DP has to become a member of the above depositories to be able to allow their clients to open demat accounts.
