Sunil Shah was born in Kenya and attended the London School of Economics for University. He trained as a Chartered Accountant with KPMG before joining Schroder Asset Management in London. He was initially an analyst on the US Desk, later promoted to fund manager on the Emerging Markets Desk to optimise on his multi-cultural background (fluent speaker of Gujarati French and Swahili).
He moved to Cape Town and joined Coronation Fund Managers in 1998.
He left Coronation in 2005 when he was their Strategist, to pursue his passsion in writing. This is his first novel.
“White Man’s Numbers’ started almost seven years ago. It was 2004 and his aversion to the way capitalism was practised, both in South Africa and globally, made the position untenable.

The timing of this novel (self-published November 2012) could not be more opportune, as the world reappraises whether this particular strain of capitalism, replete with cronyism and a corporate casino mentality, does indeed have a future.
Sunil has self-published his novel in South Africa and would be delighted to hear from any international literary agents or publishers.
