I’m opening broker account with discount broker… can i invest in ipos using discount broker account?
No. Generally, the discount brokers do not provide add-on services like IPO trading.
However, there are also other ways to invest in IPO once you have a DP ID like investing through your bank account using ASBA (Account Supported By Blocked Amount). Anyways, full-service brokers provide a simpler platform to invest directly in IPOs. I hope it helps.
I see that you are willing to buy IPO from discount brokers and I would like to inform you that generally discount brokers do not offer IPO trading services. You do not need a broker to buy an IPO. You can take help from the bank by downloading the IPOs Blank ASPA form from the BSE/NSE website and submitting the details to the nearest branch. I hope this helps.
Yes you can buy an IPO with a discount broker. I am with one (finvasia) and they allow that
