How To Invest In Nepal Share Market

First, what is the secondary market? It is the market where investors can trade shares in companies listed on the Nepal Stock Exchange (NEPSE). When you first buy shares in the main market through an IPO, the shares are not listed on NEPSE. Only after the allocation process are the shares listed.

When the share is listed and the first trade takes place, a new price is set for the relevant share.

If you have invested in IPOs, you probably have a Demat account in your name. A demat account is an account to store your shares, just like a bank account is an account to store your money. It is mandatory to have a Demat account to invest in the stock market. To open a Demat account, you can go to one of the companies licensed by SEBON as a Depository Participant (DP). Generally, banks, commercial banks and stock brokers are allowed to open a Demat account for their customers. These companies will charge a certain fee for opening your Demat account. The DP will provide you with your Demat Account Number (also known as BOID) and MeroShare credentials.

A MeroShare account is an account that gives you access to your shares electronically. This account allows you to view the details of your stock holdings and the current value of your portfolio. In addition, it also provides access to your transaction history and purchase sources. Application of IPOs, FPOs, rights shares etc. can also be done through your MeroShare account. Your MeroShare account is usually opened along with your Demat account if you specify it clearly while filling your Demat account form. To access your MeroShare account, go to https://meroshare.cdsc.com.np/ and log in with your DP credentials.

If you are going to buy/sell shares in the secondary market, you need a stock broker account. A stockbroker buys and sells stocks on behalf of clients. Currently there are around 50 traders in Nepal. You can find the right stockbroker and open an account with them. Some traders are also licensed as DP, which means you can open your Demat account, MeroShare account and trader account at the same place.

A trading account gives you access to an online system, known as a Trade Management System (TMS), where you can enter your buy/sell orders yourself. You do not need to call your broker to place the order. You can open your trading account at the brokerage office itself. Your trader will provide you with the process and other details required for the trading account. Brokers usually ask for collateral when you open a trading account with them. Collateral is essentially an amount of collateral (either cash or check) that allows you to buy shares worth four times the amount you gave as collateral to the broker. For example, if you want to buy shares worth Rs. 1, 00, 000 through the trading account, you have to enter an additional amount of Rs. NOK 25,000 to broker.

(It is better to call the stockbroker and ask them about the process of opening a stockbroker and trading accounts. Different brokers have different ways of doing this. Some allow you to open a trading account online while others ask you to visit their office and submit the documents. Usually the required documents are KYC Form, Citizenship Copy, DP Confirmation Letter, TMS Agreement Form and Security Check.The documents will also be available on the broker’s website.)

It is quite obvious that you need money to buy shares. The bank account will be linked to your Demat account, MeroShare account and stock broker account. If you buy an IPO, the amount will be automatically deducted from your bank account which you have linked with your Demat/MeroShare account. However, in the secondary market, you can pay your broker from any of your bank accounts. A bank account is also required when receiving cash dividends. The dividend amount will automatically be credited to your respective bank account.

Once you have chosen your stock, you must also decide how much of the stock you want to buy and at what price. Before you order, you must be aware of the price and quantity. This is for buying and selling. In case of selling, you obviously need the shares in your Demat account before selling it. Otherwise, it will not be a valid order.

There are two different ways you can invest in the secondary market – online and offline. The offline method is where you call your stockbroker to place your orders to execute the transaction.
