  • HDFC Securities Industry Overview

Industry Statistics

  • Indian brokerage industry has been undergoing structural shift from percentage led business model to flat brokerage & subscription based model.
  • Broking industry has seen lot of changes and evolvement in past decade, led by disruptions from discount brokers, buoyancy in equity markets, digitalization and increased interest among various investor groups.
  • India’s stock market penetration, in terms of investors, is substantially lower at ~1-2% of the population as compared to ~20% in developed market, leaving lot of room for growth.

These new entrants were from Tier II and Tier III cities as well. This speaks about the change in mindset of investors and their willingness to invest in equities, as opposed to their traditional go-to investment instruments such as gold, real estate etc. 
  • The brokerage market was valued at INR 135.0 Bn in FY 2016. In FY 2020, it reached INR 210 Bn from INR 195 Bn in FY 2019, expanding at an annual growth rate ~7.69%.

Future Prospects

  • India is expected to be the fourth largest private wealth market globally by 2028.

Government Initiatives

  • In FY21 more than USD 5 lakh Cr. of stimulus coming from the US Government, Federal Reserve etc. This could keep global liquidity on the higher side.

HDFC Securities Shortcomings

  • Company’s borrowings have increased by 126%, in comparison to FY21, primarily due to its expansion plans.
  • HDFC Securities brokerage is very high and not negotiable. It makes investors switch to other platforms.
  • HDFC does not have a strong presence in rural areas, while with digitalization and development, they will need to cover that market as well. 

HDFC Securities Opportunities

  • Many people from tier 1 and tier 2 cities are looking to invest in the stock market and the company can target these new customers and increase its penetration in the market.
  • Company can use digital solutions for business/collections this will improve efficiency and reduce cost of operations.
  • India’s stock market penetration, in terms of investors, is substantially lower at 1-2% of the population as compared to 20% in developed market, leaving lot of room for growth.
  • With recent trends clearly suggesting consumer preference shifting towards service oriented product offering i.e discount brokerage plans, traditional brokers have now started launching their own discount plans in order to attract clients, HDFC can also look for growth in these segments.
  • Indian broking industry though has a transaction fee model but its structurally moving for a clear distinction between charges for transaction and fee based model for services like wealth management and investment advisory. This leaves space for the company to work on.
  • Industry has taken an evolutionary leap today by offering relevant products to customers through comprehensive and intuitive digital platforms. the company should work in this domain to grow further.

HDFC Securities Threats

  • There is an increase in competition from other new-age companies like Zerodha and Upstox.
  • The competitive environment has changed dramatically for full-service brokerage firms. Until the mid-1980's, these firms dominated the landscape. Securities regulations mandated a level playing field that gave firms little beyond their image and reputation to differentiate themselves. Also price deregulation and technological advances dramatically changed that paradigm. A new breed of specialized firms and discount brokers appeared on the scene, offering services at vastly lower costs.
  • Due to the ease with which firms can enter and exit an industry, the number of substitutes in the same product line at different prices poses a risk of losing the investor base.
  • The number of cybercrime incidents has increased with the advancement of the digital era. Because the firm's operations are entirely online, there is a higher risk of fraud and the loss of investors' personal information.
  • Government policies in various countries change on a regular basis. Furthermore, political unrest in the country may distort trading cycles and have a negative impact on stock markets.
