Solo Capital is one of the leading international finance companies in the world. It was established in the year 2011 and is a subsidiary of Solo Group Holdings. The company was founded by Sanjay Shah, a well-known and renowned magnate. The company’s headquarters are located in London, England but recently the company expanded into Dubai. Solo Capital focuses on property trading and consulting on top of professional sports investment.
Sanjay Shah was born in Kenya in the year 1970. Shortly afterward, his family relocated to London in the United Kingdom and became residents of Central London. It was here that Sanjay Shah was raised and grew up. After completing high school, Sanjay Shah joined Kings College to study medicine. Four years later he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in medicine. He was expected to start a career in medicine, but this was not to be as deep down inside he knew he wasn’t cut out for the medical field. His focus was on the financial sector. His career in the financial and investment world started when he got a job as a banker. He worked as a banker for a couple of financial institutions such as Credit Suisse, Merrill Lynch and a Dutch Bank known as Rabobank. However, in 2009, a financial crisis hit the financial sector pretty hard, and Sanjay Shah was laid off. Realizing that it would be hard to get another job as a banker in any bank due to the crisis, Sanjay opted to start his own company. He rented out a small office in London and hired a couple of graduates. That is how Solo Capital was birthed. In less than five years, the company was valued at $280 million. It had become a competitor to many of the significant financial and investment companies that existed. With a lot of money in his pocket, Sanjay Shah started other businesses and stepped down as CEO of Solo Capital. He established Solo Group Holding to help him manage all of his companies including Solo Capital.
Sanjay Shah is also a philanthropist. He is the founder of Autism Rocks, a non-profit organization that raises awareness about autism through concerts. The proceeds from the concerts are used in research. Sanjay Shah was compelled to do something after his son, Nikhil, was diagnosed with autism in 2011.
