Solo Capital Holdings is the company Sanjay Shah started out of the ashes of his career on Wall Street. His company now owns the trading brands Solo Capital Limited and Solo Capital UK, which operate in the markets of London. Since starting the holding company, he has bought and founded other companies in such diverse locations as Malta, Dubai, London, Luxembourg, the Virgin Islands, and the Cayman Islands.
It has only taken 8 years for Shah to amass a fortune estimated to be worth approx. $280 million. He even got back into investment banking with his purchase of Old Park Lane Capital. Shah now lives the life of a philanthropic retiree with his family in Dubai. Shah worked his way to the top, intensely producing for the major finance house Merrill Lynch, and Credit Suisse, and Morgan Stanley. Then, in 2007 when the corruption scandals broke and Wall Street spiraled into The Street, Sanjay Shah was downsized with thousands of others.
He did not stop his ambitions, but he did get into action. He founded Solo Capital Holdings in 2007 out of his original company: Aesa S.a.r.l. It was a risky move, but one that obviously has paid off quite fully. Shah started a new philanthropic venture a while back. While he was entertaining Snoop Dogg with his family in their home in Dubai, he mentioned that his youngest son is autistic.
Shah took the idea to heart and launched the charity: Autism Rocks. So far the charity has raised over $15 million that has gone to the Autism Research Trust, a Cambridge University study program. Some of the superstars, besides Snoop Dogg, that have performed at these very private benefit shows include Drake, Lenny Kravitz, Michael Bublè, and the late Prince.
