What is SBI Demat Account & Trading Account?
Till 2011, SBI itself provides Demat & Trading services to its clientele. Post-2011, SBI has handed over this segment to SBICAP Securities, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of SBI Capital Markets Ltd. Thus, all the accounts opened thereof were in the books of SBICAP securities.
Having a Demat account not only helps you in buying shares but also helps in storing them safely in Demat form. In a Demat account, you can hold a variety of investments such as equity shares, mutual funds, bonds, ETFs, and government securities.
But to buy or sell those baskets of securities, you need to have a trading account. Without this account, you cannot trade in the stock market. Many of us are not sure about holding two-two accounts to conduct trade in the share market.
Let’s understand the difference between both accounts with a small example. You have Rs.1000 in your wallet and you went to a Mall. In one store, you liked one T-shirt, you check the price and finalize the transaction by paying Rs.800 in exchange for a T-Shirt. Therefore, your wallet act as a Demat account, and you acted as a Trading account.
