Sanjay Shah and his philanthropic works
In a recent interview, Sanjay Shah highlighted that he did not start out in financial investment and industry. He had enrolled for medicine before coming to a decision that being a doctor was not where his heart was. He shifted field and became an accountant. He worked for a number of investment banks such as Credit Suisse, Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley. Shah became jobless during the 2009 financial crisis, and with no prospect of landing new employment, he came up with a decision of starting his own brokerage firm. It was at this point that Solo Capital began.
Sanjay Shah was born in September 1970 in a family of Kenyan immigrants. He grew up in Marylebone and later joined King’s College where he studied medicine. He is currently a reputable British businessman who actively participates in philanthropic activities. He is the founder and CEO of Solo Capital partners. On 7th of December 2015, Shah resigned voluntarily from Varengold Bank’s Supervisory Board. This move was motivated by his desires to go for an early retirement and lay more focus on his philanthropic works and new business ventures.
Shah is a loving father of three kids. Unfortunately, one of his kids is autistic. This motivated him to fund the Autism Rock, which aimed at helping children suffering from autism. Shah acts as the CEO of Autism Rocks organization, and he has arranged various events that have been graced by popular international musicians.
From his medical background, Shah became more interested in discovering the cause of autism in addition to helping the affected families. The efforts being put in research of autism is very low according to Shah, and he is contemplating of starting a funding project to enable more research on this condition.
