Sanjay Shah & Autism Rocks

Sanjay Shah is a british mogul and philanthropist that founded Solo Capital Markets and is most known for the creation of Autism Rocks. Shah is also the founder of Aesa S.a.r.l which controls Solo Group Holdings as well as Solo Capital Markets. Solo Capital Markets is an international boutique financial service that is located in London, England. Suprisingly, Sanjay studied medicine before realizing that being a doctor was not for him and jumped into the financial and investment industry. He began working as an accountant for numerous financial institutions such as Morgan Stanley and Merill Lynch. In 2009 during the financial recession, Shah decided to start his own brokerage firm, hence, the beginning of Solo Capital.

Within 4 years of business, Solo Capital Markets had a net worth of 15.45 million and assets valued over 67 million in UK currency. Sanjay Shah owns dozens of businesses throughout the UK to the Cayman Islands. Now considering himself retired in London and Dubai, he currently holds a net worth of $280 million US dollars! Solo Capital is now in the process of a wind down that in essence allows Sanjay more time to his family and reaching out on how he can contribute to the world.

In 2011, His son was diagnosed with a complex neuro-behavioral disorder that inspired him to create Autism Rocks, a charity organization dedicated to funding autism research and raising awareness about the disorder. With the creation of Autism Rocks, Shah has been able to intertwine his passion for music and the love of his family with his business and financial sense. Funding research is a critical step in developing a better understanding and standard care for the disability. During a visit by the music mogul and Grammy award winning Snoop Dogg to his family home in Dubai, Sanjay was inspired to stage concerts from such artists to raise funds for autism research.

In April 2016, Autism Rocks hosted Autism Rocks fest 2016 that was filled with family festivities and major performances by platinum selling artists such as Flo Rida and Tyga. All funds and donations from the organization goes to the Autism Research Trust that supports research at Cambridge University by the Autism Research Centre. Autism Rocks was founded in 2014 and has since featured many superstars like Prince, Lenny Kravitz, and Drake. It has been an incredible journey for Sanjay and he has raised over 15 million for autism research with Autism Rocks.
