If you have not heard about Solo Capital or its founder, Sanjay Shah, you have not been keeping up with financial news and blogs. One of the most respected financial institutions in this day and age is Solo Capital Markets. It is a reputed company which is known for the services which they offer clients from all over the world. With its headquarters in the United Kingdom, the company also has branches in other areas, including Malta, Dubai and Luxembourg.
The story behind Solo Capital is very interesting. It starts with the story of Sanjay Shah. He started out as a student studying medicine to become a physician. Along the way, Sanjay’s passion changed to business. He decided to study accounting and even worked as an accountant for several banks. During the 2009 global financial crisis, Sanjay was one of the people who were rendered redundant and he lost his job.
In order to survive and fend for himself, he decided to start a brokerage company called Solo Capital. This was the only way in which he could stay in the industry and not go hungry. In 2011, he officially launched the company and has proceeded to achieve even greater strides in the years that followed.
Sanjay Shah has always had a passion for business and finance, but he has also gained his inspiration from his family. When his child was born, for instance, he had autism. Sanjay could afford to help his son get the help of therapists. However, he started thinking of those children who could not get the help they needed because of financial constraints. That is how he started the Autism Rocks Foundation to help such children.
Autism Rocks is run so as to help get funds that go into the study and research of autism. They organise events where by many celebrated music artists and DJs attend concerts and the money contributed is directed to the research and awareness.
