The DSP Group, headed by Mr. Hemendra Kothari is one of India’s oldest financial services firms having commenced its stock broking business in the 1860’s. Over the last 150 plus years, the DSP Group has flourished in the financial services space in India. One of the founding members of the DSP Group was an instrumental force in setting up the Bombay Stock Exchange.
The DSP Group has evolved over the years – from stock broking in the 1860s, investment banking in the 1970s to wealth and asset management from the 1990s to the present. During our journey we have gained substantial international experience from our partnerships with Dresdner Bank AG, Banque Francaise Du Commerce Exterieur (BFCE), Swiss Bank Corporation (now UBS), Merrill Lynch and BlackRock. Today DSP Investment Managers is an established player in the asset management space and is counted among India's most respected investment management firms.
