  • Email
  • Phone 
  • Web form 
  • Chat

The number of communication channels are wide and provide 24* 7 customer service but customer service quality is pretty ordinary. If RK Global is looking any sort of value to its clients through customer service, it needs to look at the following aspects very closely:

  • Train its customer executives team and make them skillful enough to deal with clients coming with different types of quaries.

A lot of users have complained about the professionalism of the executives and the customer care service quality is reviewed as "below average".

RK Global Closing Thoughts

Like all brokers, there is room for improvement for R K Global too. Despite R K Global's shortcomings with charging for trading tools and lacking in training and education, the broker is offering some of the unique facilities to its clients which is lacking in other discount Brokers.

They have 3-in-1 account offering which is unique and easy to transfer funds. With low brokerage, decent trading platform, provision of tips and recommendations- it certainly offers more than value for money service to its clients.
