From brokerage success to charity sponsor

Autism Rocks is a charity that was established by millionaire British trader Sanjay Shah. Shah founded the charity when his own son Nikhil developed autism. The first signs of concern were when Nikhil couldn’t keep down his food at a very young age as this is usually linked with autism or some form of attention disorder. When he was in Dubai for the tests, Shah began to donate money to the Autism center there. His investments into autism research grew as he began to hold concerts to raise money. Soon, he developed his own charity, Autism Rocks to help focus his efforts to raise money.
