Quality, in-depth educational material relating to the stock markets isn’t easily available, especially for free.
For the first time in India, ZERODHA, India’s leading technology driven online brokerage firm, is breaking this barrier by making its already popular online educational initiative VARSITY available in Gujarati and Hindi for FREE.
In keeping with its commitment to boost financial literacy in India, ZERODHA is trying to create a strong online education infrastructure for people wanting to learn about stock markets. This one year old initiative called, ‘ZERODHA VARSITY’ is already popular within the trading and investing community in India and overseas. Zerodha Varsity has visitors from 177 countries across the globe. Some of the top countries where ZERODHA VARSITY is popular are The United States, United Kingdom, UAE, Singapore, Canada, Germany, Australia and Saudi Arabia.
Speaking more on the important development, Nithin Kamath, Founder & CEO, Zerodha said, “A year ago if you wanted to learn about stock markets, you would have to shell out a heavy price. The prices would not guarantee quality education as most of the programs in the market were offered by service providers and tipsters to lure you into buying their services. However, we have now made this high quality content absolutely free. You need not even have to login to gain access to the contents. There are absolutely no barriers whatsoever. Further we have even made the entire website responsive which means you can easily access the content from your laptops, mobiles, and tablets.”
With the regional language releases of ZERODHA VARSITY, the company is now hoping to reach out to the masses who are not comfortable with the English language and have never attempted trading before. The idea is to nurture the culture of investment in India and let people know that if invested properly, stock market is a serious avenue for long term wealth generation.
Adding further, Karthik Rangappa, VP-Education Services, Zerodha said, “We have about ten major topics for now, we call them ‘Modules’. Each module contains about 15-20 chapters. The idea is that if a person reads through all the chapters within a module then he will be in a position to understand the topic very well. In case of any questions, he can post the query under each chapter and he is guaranteed to get a response within 24 hours”.
ZERODHA VARSITY already has exhaustive Modules on Technical Analysis, Fundamental Analysis, Futures Trading, Options Trading, Markets & Taxation, Trading Strategies etc. The content is presented in an easy to understand language with relevant examples from Indian markets.
ZERODHA VARSITY has already garnered 5 million page views and has 7000 registered users.
