How you can buy and sell shares digitally:

#1 Open Demat & Trading account

For online trading and investing, you need to first open a demat account. PL offers a seamless process, allowing you to open a demat account within minutes. This process involves completing your Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements and furnishing the necessary documentation. These include:

  • Pan Card
  • Identity Proof
  • Residence Proof
  • Bank Account Proof
  • Proof of Income
  • Photograph

After opening the demat account, you can start trading and investing online. Shares you buy and sell are credited and debited, respectively, into your Demat account. Note that all investments made by you – including shares, government securities, mutual funds and exchange traded funds – are held in the Demat account.

#2 Rely on Research

Before trading or investing in any asset class, research thoroughly. This will help you in identifying the right opportunities and help you generate better returns.

When you open an account with PL, you gain access to cutting-edge research reports and insights.

Further, remember to assess your risk tolerance, financial goals, and investment horizon meticulously. Whether you are considering long-term investments or short-term trading, informed decision-making is the key to your financial success.

#3 Diversify

Your portfolio should ideally be well-diversified across sectors and asset classes – including equity, debt, and gold. Understand each asset class closely, and then decide your allocation to each accordingly. This helps in protecting the overall portfolio from the downside risk emerging in a single sector or asset class.
