Once an archetypal boy, Jignesh Shah, built an empire within a decade, so vast that India could never dream of. He is a first generation entrepreneur who currently worth 610 million dollars. Not too long ago, he belonged from a bourgeois family and was working at an online electronic trading platform known as the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). After learning various strategies of the stock market, he left the job. Like every visionary, he too had a dream and he knew that the only way he could achieve that dream was by being an entrepreneur. He wanted to adopt a model that while enriching himself as a by-product, should enable thousands of people and the society itself, to create enormous wealth. Soon after leaving his job at the Bombay Stock Exchange, Jignesh Shah landed with his flagship product, Financial Technologies India Limited (FTIL), currently known as 63 Moons Technologies Limited.
Jignesh Shah had a dream, and that was to create new-generation markets and segments that are people-centric and have a comprehensive market structure. He wanted to open up the routes of India in the international trade and took his first step with organizing a rendezvous with the top capital market honchos. The audacious entrepreneur demonstrated his strategies and ideas to his invitees for three days and lit the first spark under the capital market. The following years witnessed a revolution that completely changed the Indian financial market.
The Founder and Chairman Emeritus of 63 moons Group, Jignesh Shah, created Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model to build world-class financial institutions and modern IP-centric financial markets which were the instruments to change the contours of exchange trading in India and other emerging economies from Africa to Asia. When FTIL had already reached the pinnacle, seeing the window of opportunity, Jignesh Shah came up with more initiatives like ODIN, Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX), National Spot Exchange Limited (NSEL), etc. that not only developed the Indian financial market but also created millions of jobs across the country. The overall impact of Jignesh Shah’s contributions increased the country’s total GDP.
