Sharekhan’s education arm, Online Trading Academy (OTA), is now expanding and has opened a new centre in Jayanagar, Bengaluru after successfully conducting courses in Mumbai for over seven years. This expansion plan is designed to cater to the growth in demand for professional training in trading and investing. Sharekhan’s existing full service branch will be co-located in the new premises alongside OTA in Jayanagar.

On the occasion of the opening of the OTA branch, Jaideep Arora, CEO, Sharekhan said, “Bengaluru is the ­­third-largest market for Sharekhan in terms of customer base. With growing numbers of customers, it is important that we augment our services to meet their requirements. Given the demographics it was an obvious choice for OTA to open its first centre outside Mumbai. We will continue to invest here with the aim of educating customers so that they can make informed decisions.”

The OTA in Bangalore will offer courses to its customers on how to manage their own portfolios, short-term trading and long-term active investing across multiple asset classes. OTA also offers lifetime learning support to its students and a live market learning where students are taught how to trade during market hours. OTA’s patented strategy of demand and supply in trading distinguishes its courses from others.

On the opening of its second branch in India, Rajesh Vora, Head of Education and Head of Online Trading Academy, Sharekhan, said, “We are thrilled to bring a state-of-the-art financial education center to Bengaluru. The demand for our courses in the Mumbai market has been growing tremendously and we’re excited to be able to bring the course offering to our students in Bengaluru. Students will have access to a vast array of courses and the resources of OTA to help them develop successful trading and investing skills.”

Channaraj KJ, Vice President – Karnataka and Kerala, said “We are pleased to relocate our branch in Jayanagar to new premises within the same locality which will provide an enhanced experience to our customers. The new branch Bangalore is a growing market of traders and investors. With the volatility in the market on account of global and domestic factors, we are helping our clients take advantage of this opportunity by providing the right advice to help them grow their wealth.”
