Doha Brokerage & Financial Services Ltd, the flagship company of the DBFS group had its origin in 1992 as one the first corporate brokerages in India and one of the leading financial service companies in the country.

With this vision in mind, the company took over a firm with national presence in 2003. Under the astute leadership and vision of the directors, Select group under its new brand name Investnet, had over 100 branches in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Maharashtra in short period of time. Subsequent to the tie-up with Doha Bank of Qatar, the Select group of companies was rechristened as Doha Brokerage and Financial Services Ltd (DBFS).
