Solo Capital Markets is a company which offers financial services on an international level. With its headquarters in London, the company was incorporated in 2011. The company is also commonly referred to as Solo Capital UK or Solo Capital Limited. The brain behind the firm is called Sanjy Shah. Sanjay Shah is both the CEO and founder of the Solo Group Holdings. He owns about three dozen companies across London, Dubai, the British Virgin Islands, Malta, Cayman Islands and Luxembourg.
The interesting thing is that Sanjay Shah never set out as an entrepreneur in financial and investment matters. In fact, he had started studying medicine before he started studying to become an accountant. He later became an accountant and began working with investment banks. Some of the banks which he worked for include Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse. In 2009, Sanjay Shah was made redundant.
The financial crisis in 2009 hit so hard that Sanjay was left with no prospects in relation to a new job. In order to get something to do and make his situation better, he decided to start his own company to offer brokerage services. This is how Solo Capital was conceived. A few years later, he founded the Autism Rocks Foundation.
Autism Rocks is an association which brings together people and friends of people with autism to create autism awareness. The association was an idea which Sanjay had when his son was diagnosed with autism. When having a cup of tea with Snoop Dogg on one occasion in 2011, he had an epiphany. He started organising concerts to raise money as well as awareness in relation to the condition. His first concert was organised and took place in 2014. In attendance were celebrities such as Prince. The concerts became more frequent and were attended by more celebrities including Drake, Snoop Dogg, Michael Buble and other reputed DJs.
Sanjay Shah also sponsored children from India every year and went on to create awareness and spend his contributions on charities. He also spent some of the contributions on the domain name for Autism Rocks and set up a website for the organisation. Apart from his charitable works, Sanjay Shah is also a trustee for the Autism Research Trust. The trust usually provides donations to the Cambridge University Autism Research Centre. His has held this position since 2013 and he and his wife make their donations to the same trust too.
To become part of the team and create awareness on autism, join the initiative on Facebook and Twitter and let your voice be heard. You can also check the Solo Capital website and consider their financial and investment services, both for individuals, businesses and start-ups.
