Important information:

While we do not levy any transfer or withdrawal charges, following charges are common across all platforms

  • Bank charges on each transfer ranging from INR 400 to 2000 and Foreign exchange markup

  • One time US broker charge of $5 at the time of first transfer

  • Withdrawal charges of $10 at the time of each withdrawal

These are partner related charges applicable on all platforms. We are working on solutions to minimise these transaction costs to make the overall experience more seamless

Have more questions?

Is there a minimum amount that I need to invest?

No. Unlike most traditional investing platforms, we place no restrictions on user accounts. There is no account minimum for investment through us. That said, in order to see benefits of investing accrue to you, we recommend that you invest at least INR 7,000 or $100 to start off.

How does it work?

Tailwind enables you to access international markets and diversify your portfolio globally. When you create an account, your brokerage account is, in turn, automatically created with DriveWealth – the US partner for clearing and brokerage services. It will take 2 business days for your account to get approved. Once approved, you will have to fund the account by transferring money into the brokerage account from your bank account.
Once the funds become available in your brokerage account, you will be able to make investments on the portal. Feel free to use the extensive research and support available on the platform.
After selling any of your investments, you can click on “Withdraw” to transfer funds back into your account to get your money back. When you begin the withdrawal process, all your available cash will be sent over to your domestic bank account

How do I withdraw my funds?

All you need to do is select the “Funds” button on your homepage page and then click on “Withdraw Funds”.
You will be shown how much money is available for you to withdraw. This is the “cash” in your account – either un-invested money or generated from sales of securities you, previously, owned. You can place a withdrawal request and the money will be wired to your domestic bank account. It takes 4-5 business days for the money to hit your account. You can only Withdraw funds to your default bank account which was added during fund transfer.
There is a $10 fee associated with withdrawals, charged by the US bank, and thus, the cash balance in your account should be at least $10 at the time of placing the withdrawal request. Any request above $20,000 requires an additional email approval.

How much can I invest in US stocks from India?

Currently, you can invest up to USD 250,000 every year in foreign stocks from India. This amount can change, subject to RBI guidelines. So your investments in US securities are also governed by the same limit.
Foreign investments fall under clearly defined RBI guidelines. The remittance of money for foreign investments comes under the Liberalized Remittance Scheme (LRS). Under LRS an Individual can remit up to USD 250,000 per financial year to invest in foreign equities done through an authorized dealer (commonly, your bank). As per the RBI policy, having a PAN card is required to purchase shares in foreign countries. You can find more information on the LRS scheme on the RBI website here.

What are Stacks?

Stacks are pre-configured baskets of stocks & ETFs that you can invest in with a single click. We aim to solve the challenge of “what to invest” with curated ready-made portfolios that are centered around an idea or a theme. Each stack is developed by leading financial experts to match different investment strategies, risk-tolerance, and investing goals.

What is Fees & Pricing for Stacks?

Each Stack has an “AUM Fee” which is computed as a percentage of the investment amount. The AUM fee can range from 1% to 2% of the investment amount – and is charged on a periodic basis (monthly, quarterly, or annually).

What Tax-support is provided?

Support and functionality to manage your local tax filing requirements.
