The E-brokerage Market recorded market size of USD X.X trillion in 2022 and is poised to grow at about 4.5% between 2021 and 2027. E-brokerage or an online broker is one who deals with clients through the Internet rather than at a physical location. Those active in internet trading will frequently contact these specialists or organizations to help them buy and sell shares.

The COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in major financial market falls and raised financial market dangers all around the world. Central banks and governments have thrown their policy tools into the market and launched never-before-seen assistance programs. As the COVID-19 epidemic progresses, investors boost their trading operations, both at the extensive and intensive margins. The number of investors who open their first account with the broker grows, while veteran investors increase their average trading activity. As the number of COVID-19 instances doubles, investors' weekly trading increases considerably. Investors establish additional stock and index positions, but do not shift to safe-haven (gold) or particularly "risky" assets (CFDs on stocks, cryptocurrencies).

Brokerages are fairly diversified today. Along with fulfilling orders, the players offer other investment strategies and other financial advisory services. A big chunk of their topline comes from filling buy and sell orders from clients. Commission and fee-based revenue come from the principal transactions. Along with it, interest income earned from investments and dividends, investment banking revenue through underwriting, and advisory services. The companies in this industry have varying levels of debt. Large brokers doing significant investment banking business often carry heavy debt burdens. While conservative companies are those who tend to depend on commissions and hold lighter debt balances.

Key Market Trends

Zero commission in United States equity markets change market dynamics

United States Securities Acts Amendments of 1975 ended fixed trade commissions. Since then the equity commissions have been on a downward trend for both institutional and retail clients. This culminated in zero-commission trading for retail investors in United States. For a few years, the mobile app-based brokerage Robinhood Markets Inc. has offered free trades and a USD 0 minimum balance to draw in millennial investors. And big financial-services companies have been cranking out other kinds of free offers. Fidelity Investments Inc. initiated index funds with zero fees, and JPMorgan Chase & Co. rolled out a service that offered clients 100 commission-free stock and ETF trades in their first year.

Brokerages also make money by catering to investment advisers, loaning customers cash to buy stocks on margin, and lending out securities to short sellers hoping to profit on a decline in prices. One of the greatest sources of revenue for brokers is to invest or loan out the money clients don't have in play in the market which is put into banking subsidiaries of brokerage houses. The revenue loss from implementing zero-commission can be covered by the surge in customer base. The revenue breakup of a few major brokerage houses indicates the hidden potential of such other sources of revenue for brokers.

Customer Satisfaction of Online Brokerage Services

The majority of internet brokers are more tool providers than advise providers. They give charts, analysis, and execution tools but do not provide particular investment recommendations. This is distinct from a firm that serves as an investment advisor. Investing became more of a do-it-yourself affair once the brokerage sector went online. One-on-one counsel that gives particular investment suggestions is still available, although usually through higher-commission accounts. Some stock brokerages use a hybrid strategy in which they propose asset allocations based on the goals of their clients. Brokers with in-house analysts, such as MerrillEdge, also make their corporate research studies available to customers.

There is no doubt to say that agents remained as the main distribution channel in the region, but some market sources indicate the distribution share might converge at 50% bancassurance, 30% agents and 20% other channels in the future. Despite the digital wave, hybrid strategies may likely defend this distribution model and help the insurers provide an omni-channel experience to the customers.

Competitive Landscape

This industry's competitive environment is fairly fragmented, with the participation of well-known brands as well as some regional and local businesses. However, with technological advancement and product innovation, mid-size to smaller companies are increasing their market presence by securing new contracts and by tapping new markets.
