Born in London, he has lived with his family in Dubai since 2009. His youngest son was diagnosed with autism in 2011, at the age of two years. This motivated Mr. Shah to support the autism community and learn more about his son’s condition. Mr. Shah spent several years on trading desks at a number of banks in London until he decided to establish his own firm. As well as this venture, he manages a real estate portfolio and has several investments across the globe including banks, publishing and hospitality.
