They are located in different countries, including the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, the Cayman Islands, the United States Virgin Islands, Malta, and Luxembourg. Several years ago, he took home a salary of 19 million pounds from the company he founded, Solo Capital. After acquiring another firm in 2014, his net worth increased to 280 million dollars.
Now retired, Sanjay Shah is pursuing business outside of the investment world. Shah has always been passionate about the music industry so he has started 2 projects in that area. The first project is a charity, Autism Rocks.
When Shah’s son was 4, they had to take him to the hospital because he was not able to keep down food. The doctor suggested that they take him to a child psychologist, who then diagnosed him with autism. Shah put him the best program for children with autism and he hired full time staff to help him develop further. Not knowing what else to do, Shah decided that the best way to help his son was to further research on autism. Shah started Autism Rocks in order to raise money for autism research.
The other project that Shah is working on is a partnership with a Dubai based promotional firm, Done Events. They have started an annual jazz festival in Dubai and have seen significant success with it.
One of the things that propelled Shah forward in other areas was his success with Solo Capital. He founded Solo Capital in 2011 with a few graduates and traders and was able to expand it to an enormous firm with over 100 employees, 35 of which are traders. After just 5 years, the firm had a net worth of 15 million pounds, assets worth 67 million pounds and a cash flow of 30 million pounds.
