Business was not Sanjay Shah’s first love. His dream had long been to become a doctor. After studying medicine, he realized he didn’t like it. He then turned his attention to accounting and financial services and worked with companies like Credit Suisse, Morgan Stanley, and Merrill Lynch. When Shah lost his job in 2009 due to the financial crisis, he decided to start Solo Capital. Shah is also the CEO and founder of Aesa S.a.r.l. The company controls Solo Group Holdings. With a net worth of about $260 million, the married father of two considers himself retired.
However, Shah remains quite busy. He has offices in Dubai and London. He continues to be an Autism Research Trust trustee, has made significant donations to the cause through the Autism Research Centre at Cambridge University, sponsors children in India, and created the website ‘Austism.Rocks’ to help raise awareness of the condition with which his son was diagnosed. Sanjay Shah is an excellent example of a life well lived.
