Most people would agree that Autism is a terrible turn of fate for anyone as they often cannot speak for their entire life, even if they understand many things that go on about them. They are reserved in speech and cannot find a way out of a self imposed prison of silence. Sanjay Shah has first hand experience with Autism as do one out of 68 children, his son, Nikhil, was diagnosed with the neurological disorder. Much has yet to be learned about the cause and cure for such a problem in children. Many children have been helped by engaging in Therapeutic Horseback riding, which stimulates the sensory functions of the child and gives them a feeling of empowerment as well as a special bond with the horse. This compels them to express their joy and sensations while riding on top of a 1200 pound animal such as a horse.
Sanjay has his own website dedicated to raising awareness toward autism and how it effects children such as his own son. He also hosts and raises funds with Autism benefit concerts where guests such as Prince, Lenny Kravitz, Drake and Michael Buble performed to invitation only guests.
Sanjay Shah is also known as a man who once thought he should become a medical doctor but part way through realized he was not cut from that type of mold. Instead, he took up bean counting, which was his forte to be sure. He is worth more than $280 million after he spent the years 2011 through today in his Solo Capital fund management group which is registered in London, England and has some cash flow of 30.26 million Pounds. He considers himself retired at this time, however he is well endowed with the gifts to raise funds for good causes such as his Autism Rocks fund which he founded in April of 2014.
His entrepreneurial educational endeavors are also an area where Sanjay Shah invests his time and energy. He sets up small business ownership seminars and instruction groups. Being a self made successful accountant and entrepreneur himself, who has amassed great success in the capital management industry, he has a gift for wealth creation that is rare among men. He belongs to that elite group that always finds a way to raise money, no matter what the circumstances may be in the global economy. In fact, Shah was able to make a great deal of headway in the capital investment markets during the great recession of 2008 and 2009 as his first accounting positions involved him with investment banks, Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse, and Morgan Stanley. He is very amenable to his Autism Research Fund from which he routes donations to the Cambridge University Autism Research Centre.
