Angel Broking has further reached a record Average Daily Turnover (ADTO) of approximately Rs. 4.8 trillion, which is nearly 19 times as compared to Rs. 253 billion in Q1 2020.

Speaking on the milestone, Mr. Prabhakar Tiwari, Chief Growth Officer, Angel Broking said, "In the past couple of years, Angel Broking has industriously traveled through the path of digital transformation. It is great to see that our concerted efforts are generating the desired results. However, we believe that the journey has only begun. The retail participation in India is still slightly above 4%. So, the kind of response that we are receiving is merely the tip of the iceberg. The industry has to prepare for an impending storm of investors in the coming few years. This generation will settle for nothing less than perfect."
Since commencing its digital transformation in 2016, Angel Broking has developed several state-of-the-art digital properties that strike the perfect chord with aspirational millennial and Gen Z investors.
