Coinswitch plans to launch platform for trading of Indian Stocks
Bengaluru-based cryptocurrency trading platform Coinswitch, which is funded by the likes of Tiger Global and Andreessen Horowitz, is planning to foray into Indian stock trading. This will see it go toe-to-toe with new-age investment players like Zerodha, Groww, Upstox, and Paytm Money.

The company had earlier announced its plans to offer conventional investment products like mutual funds, US stocks, etc., widening its scope beyond cryptocurrencies, which have taken a battering over the last few years. Even though the price of bitcoin has recovered in the last six months, it is still half the highs it hit in November 2021.
 
“The company is planning to apply for a stockbroker’s licence with SEBI (Securities and Exchange Board of India). There are also conversations going on with non-banking financial companies (NBFCs) and banks for offering fixed deposits,” a person aware of the matter said.

For Coinswitch, the focus turned to Indian stocks after its plans to enable retail investment in US stocks were put on the backburner following the hike in tax collected at source (TCS) on foreign remittances under the Liberalised Remittance Scheme (LRS).
