Before Vested, investing internationally was quite a hassle. Their interface is very user-friendly and transfer of funds from India has been made easy. Most importantly, reports to file income taxes are also available at a click. The Management team is open to feedback and works on improving the platform continuously. I would recommend them to everyone who wants to make an international portfolio

Vested has been one the earliest and definitely one of the most user-friendly service helping investors like me to diversify their portfolio. I have never faced a single issue with either fund transfer, buying or selling stocks or even withdrawals back to my Indian account. I am a big fan of vested direct and also their tax harvesting feature which they introduced recently. ?Kudos to the team! Keep it up!!

I’ve been with Vested since 2019, one of the early ones. I was so grateful to have a commission free broker who enabled me to buy and sell US stocks while residing in India. I continue to enjoy the ease with which I can conduct serious business from my cellphone. Since I have a long term commitment to stay invested in my stocks, I am depending on Vested being my facilitator for the long term as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can NRIs invest in US Stocks?

Yes, NRIs can invest in US Stocks from Vested. In order to onboard you, we will require your PAN card (or passport), address proof (Aadhaar or passport), and tax ID from the country in which you are currently a tax resident.

What are the fund transfer options available for NRIs investing in US Stocks?

Currently, there are two ways in which you can add funds:

  • Transfer from your bank account in India
  • Wire transfer funds from your non-Indian bank account

The beneficiary details are available under the Fund Transfer section on the platform.

Do the investments made by NRIs fall under LRS?

If you are adding funds from your bank account outside India or from an NRE or FCNR account within India, the LRS limits do not apply. You are permitted to transfer up to USD 10,000 from an NRO account.

How will taxes work?

You will be taxed as per the laws in the country in which you are a tax resident. For example, if you are a tax resident of the UAE, you will pay taxes as per UAE tax laws.

How can I verify ownership of the shares?

Share ownership verification works slightly differently in the US than in India. Shares are held by a third-party custodian in the ‘street name‘ of the broker rather than the underlying investor. This is why you do not receive direct emails from the custodian regarding your holdings. As per SEC guidelines, if you want to confirm the share ownership for your Vested account, you can contact DriveWealth, our broker partner, directly at support@drivewealth.com.

How does fractional investing work?

On the Vested platform, you can invest in either full or fractional shares. When your investment is in full shares, our broker partner (DriveWealth) will route the orders to market centers on an Agency basis. When the investment is fractional shares, our broker partner will satisfy the order from its own account on a Principal basis at the National Best Bid or Offer (NBBO). NBBO means that DriveWealth cannot add margin to the price. So, if the market price of 1 share of Amazon is $1000, and you purchase 0.1 share of Amazon, you will pay $100 for the 0.1 share. Any orders for both full or fractional shares will be executed via both methods, part as Agent and part as Principal.
