Sanjay Shaw Gives Back To the Autism Community

This past April In Dubai, of all places, groups of concerned people and their close friends celebrated Autism Awareness Month. The celebrating was done around a music festival aptly named the Autism Rocks Festival. The Festival featured American Rap Artists Flo Rida and Tyga performing a live concert that had two goals; one was to help raise awareness of this devastating condition and the second was to help raise money for autism research that would be used exclusively for finding the causes of autism and to hopefully help develop a cure for the condition.

The Autism Rocks Festival in Dubai was the brainchild of the Dubai-based couple Usha and Sanjay Shah Denmark. They are the parents of an autistic child whose name is Nikhil. Prior to their child being born with this condition neither Usha nor Sanjay had any idea what autism was and the effects that it had on a family. Of course, all of that has changed dramatically since their son’s birth.

Sanjay founded Autism Rocks as an organization to help raise awareness for the condition and to help raise money for more research. He got the idea for using big musical stars and concerts as a vehicle to raise money for autism research while having a luncheon with the Rapper Snoop Dog. He and Snoop were having a meeting to lay out plans to raise money for Snoop’s shows when the idea hit Sanjay. The First Autism Rocks show was an invitation-only affair held in 2014 and featured the musical legend Prince.

Sanjay Shaw, the businessman has a controlling interest in the company is Solo Group Holdings which also controls Solo Capital Markets an international boutique financial services company. They are headquartered in London, England and regulated in the United Kingdom. Solo Capital Markets is also referred to as Solo Capital Limited and Solo Capital UK. Their investment specialties are in proprietary trading, specialty consulting services, and professional sports investments. In 2015 Solo Capital Partners had a net worth of £15.45 million. They had assets estimated at £67.45 and a positive cash flow of £30.26 million.

Sanjay, however, did not start in business in the investment industry. He initially studied medicine but changed his mind about making it his full-time career and switched his focus to the field of accounting. He worked as an accountant for a number of investment banks including Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse, and Morgan Stanley before starting his own brokerage firm Solo Capital.

The Founding of Autism Rocks

Solo Capital is an investment firm that is currently based in London, a perfect place for international investment pursuers. Solo Capital was founded in 2011 by Sanjay Shah Denmark, an investment expert and a family man. The foundation of this investment firm is a result of the 2008 financial crisis when Mr. Shah lost his job from an investment firm. Though he and his family were devastated, this event taught him the true meaning of success. Though he has lost his job, Sanjay Shah was able to pull himself up and start a new investment firm which specializes in helping small to medium-sized businesses.

The business choice to specialize in helping smaller businesses was for the purpose of forming a relationship with the clients of the firm. This business model has gained Solo Capital countless loyal clients who have trusted Sanjay Shah and his team with financial advice for the future. As a professional consultant, Sanjay Shah emphasizes investments that provide a high rate of return with a small risk factor. As a businessman, Sanjay Shah continues to speculate about future investments and has found that some of the largest rate of return investments come from technological investments and investments in renewable energy. At Solo Capital, Mr. Shah and his team offer unique solutions that are tailored to each and every customer around the world.

Though he is a businessman and a business owner, Sanjay Shah has always put his family above all else. In 2011, as his business was taking off, his young son was diagnosed with autism. Autism is a development disorder that is diagnosed to one in 68 children around the world on an annual basis. Though this disorder is not rare, not much is known of autism. With this in mind, Sanjay Shah created Autism Rocks, a foundation that is dedicated to furthering the research of autism.

As autism is most commonly diagnosed among boys and can lead to expensive medical bills, Sanjay Shah uses this foundation as a way to fund research to learn more about autism. The finding from this research will not only help Mr. Shah and his family, but will also benefit other families with autistic children.
