The work of Sanjay Shah is well known to people in many different areas of the financial and philanthropic sectors, but is primarily now known for the prominent role he has with his own charity, Autism Rocks. Sanjay Shah had already become a well respected figure on the London financial markets through his work with a number of the world’s best known investment companies, including Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley when he looked for a lifestyle change in Dubai; Shah set out to form his own investment company in the form of the boutique company Solo Capital following the collapse of the global economy in 2008.
Sanjay Shah headquartered Solo Capital in London, but also opened an office in Dubai as he looked to embark on a new life spending more time with his family. The opening of Solo Capital in 2011 has seen a period of sustained success occur for the company with its expansion across a range of different countries throughout the world. The success of Solo Capital is seen in the high level of cash flow that is seen by the investment firm, which has reached around $30 million per year as its experienced and expertly trained members of staff attract new clients to the group.
Although much of the focus of Sanjay Shah’s life has been on the business world he is a major part of, Shah has also looked to enter retirement to avoid missing out on the childhood of his children. The life of the Shah family changed with the diagnosis of autism received by the youngest son of Sanjay, which prompted an interest in philanthropy to fund greater research into the causes of the neurological condition and the support needed for family members. Establishing the Autism Rocks series of concerts came after Sanjay Shah enjoyed a chance meeting with the rapper Snoop Dogg and had his love of music rekindled by the encounter. Initially, Sanjay Shah focused on raising funds through intimate invitation only performances by some of the most famous musicians in the world, but will soon see the first Autism Rocks music festival take place in Dubai in Summer 2016.
