Solo Capital founder Sanjay Shah is a financial broker, entrepreneur, and philathropist. Born in London, he moved to Dubai after falling in love with the country while on a business trip. Sanjay Shah originally studied medicine before he became a accountant, a job that he held for several years before he decided he did not like the 9-5 lifestyle and founded his own brokerage firm, Solo Capital.
Sanjay Shah’s skills as an accountant and the experience he earned as part of several prestigious firms including investment firm Merril Lynch, Morgan Stanley, and ING, and the Dutch bank Rabobank. The skills and experience he gained while working with these firms allowed him to start his own brokerage firm with much success during the financial crisis of 2009.
Fatherhood led him to becoming a celebrated philathropist. Although he had participated in several chartitble endeavors, including sponsoring children in India through Phan International, it was after his third and youngest child was diagnosed with Autism that he was inspired what has become his largest charitable endevour to date. He founded Autism Rocks, a charity that raises funds for Autism reasearch by organizing concerts by celebrated rock stars such as Prince, and Elvis Costello.
Today, Sanjay Shah considers himself semi-retired as a trader and mostly focuses on his work with his charitble foundation, Austism Rocks. He also spends much of time with his family, including his three children and his wife. He is passionate about Autism research, and is very steadfast in his belief that research into Austism is not about finding a cure but about learning how the disease works, and how we can better teach children with Autism and their parents to interact with one another. To this end Autism Rocks funds a research organization, Autism Research Center, which is also known as ARC.
Shah founded Solo Capital in order to get away from the daily grind of office work and as CEO and founder of Solo Capital he has led this small international botique financial services company to great success. Based in London and regulated by the United Kingdom, the firm was founded in 2011 and specializes in consulting, professional sports investments and proprietary trading. It also has secondary offices in Dubai, where Sanjay Shah lives. The firm, under the direction of Sanhay Shah has climbed to a net worth of 14.5 million pounds as of March 2015, and has many satisfied clients.
