Sanjay Shah, the company’s CEO owns more than 10 other companies across London and all, including Solo Capital, are managed by Solo Group Holdings. The journey to forming Solo Capital included several decisions and risks that Sanjay Shah had to take.
He began by studying medicine but later changed to accounting when he realized being a doctor did not serve his passion. After the 2008 financial crisis, Sanjay lost his job. Thereafter, he went ahead and started a brokerage company in 2009, which would later grow into an incorporation named Solo Capital. Solo Capital has since grown and built a reputation across the world for being among top boutique investment and proprietary trading firms across the world.
In 2011, Sanjay Shah’s son was diagnosed with neurodevelopmental disorder, which saw him move from one hospital to another to save his 4 years old son. This condition inspired Shah to form Autism Rocks, an organization that shares awareness about autism as well as offering solutions to those who cannot afford expensive treatment procedures.
