Before the incorporation of Solo Capital, in September 2011, Shah started out as an astute businessman. He remarkably earned £19 million in March 31, 2011 and took over Old Park Lane Capital 3 years later. Old Park Lane Capital is an invitation only stockbroker focused on natural resources. In January 2016, the company had a networth of $280 million. Shah’s record breaking earnings in 2011 came as a surprise to many because many companies at the time were pushing for salary freeze and giving profit warnings.
Shah started his career by studying medical student before changing his mind to pursue finance and investment. Over the years, Shah has served as an accountant in various leading banks, including Credit Suisse, Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley. During the global financial crisis of 2009, Shah lost his job and made a life changing decision to start his own brokerage firm, Solo Capital. Outside his corporate engagements, Sanjay Shah supports various societal causes. One of the organizations close to his heart is Autism Rocks, which he founded in 2014. According to the online magazine Global Citizen, Shah established Autism Rocks after his 2 year old son Nikhil was diagnosed with the disease. The organization stages musical gigs around the world to raise funds to support people with autism through research.
