Sanjay Shah was on his way to becoming a medical doctor when he had a change of heart, ultimately choosing to take his career in a totally different direction. Being interested in financial matters, he looked toward the banking industry for a career that he could feel comfortable with. Eventually he decided to become an accountant and, through the years, managed to work for several investment banks, including Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse. He felt that he was doing the work that he was meant to do.
The financial crisis in 2009 resulted in Sanjay and many others becoming redundant. There were few new jobs during that time, which prompted him to create a brokerage firm of his own, Solo Capital Markets, in 2011. It is an international boutique financial services company that has its headquarters in London, England and is regulated in the United Kingdom. As the founder and CEO of the company, Sanjay Shah leads an experienced group of employees who provide clients with excellent guidance and service. The major business divisions included in Solo Capital Markets are Performance and Human Capital, Talent Acquisition, Proprietary Trading, Commodities, Consulting, Derivatives and Professional Sports Investments.
Mr. Shah had been a sponsor of underprivileged children in India for around ten years when his world was shaken by the diagnosis of his four year old son with autism. Looking for a way to help raise awareness, generate support and money for research, he came up with the idea of coordinating concerts while enjoying a cup of tea with Snoop Dogg. Many famous musical artists have joined in performing for the organization founded by Sanjay Shah. Known as Autism Rocks, the group has been able to make a huge difference in the funding of autism research. Additionally, Mr. Shah and his wife financially support Autism Research Trust, which he became trust director of in January 2013. It regularly donates to Cambridge University’s Autism Research Center.
