Stockbroking platform Zerodha's net profit surged 37% to Rs 2,909 crore in the fiscal year 2022-23 (FY23) compared to Rs 2,120.3 crore in the last year.

According to the MCA filings, a significant chunk of expenses was related to fees and commission, amounting to Rs 2,223.4 crore in FY23, up from Rs 1,581.1 crore in FY22.

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), he said: "Every time our financials are out, there is a lot of speculation about Zerodha's valuation. It might sound counterintuitive for me to say it, but most assumptions, I think, are way higher than reality. This is how we have been valuing ourselves for all buybacks (founders and team) for a while now. So ~Rs 30,000 crores and not the Rs 1 lakh to Rs 2 lakh crores some folks online were guesstimating."

Established in 2010 by Nithin and Nikhil Kamath, Bengaluru-based Zerodha provides brokerage-free equity investments, retail and institutional broking, and trading in currencies and commodities. The financial services firm operates in nine cities across India.

Additionally, Zerodha is an official member of the National Stock Exchange's consultative committee, contributing to the expansion of business.
