About Shah Capital

Founded in 2005 out of an evolution and passion of investing which stems from thinking ahead of the curve and being pro-active. Shah Capital takes a two-fold approach to investing in companies. First, the stock market provides opportunities on both ends of the spectrum in terms of buying and selling, the underlying value of a business does not change as often as stock prices do. The other half of this equation is the qualitative side of a business which it believes is the key to long-term success of a company. Shah Capital is sector agnostic as it sees opportunities across a range of companies when analyzing the strategy of the business, competitive landscape, management capabilities and also the innovation of the company. For Shah Capital, this two fold approach allows it to find the right balance and unique investment opportunities.
