Managing Partner

Mr. Shah is the founder and managing partner at Prime Oak Capital. In 2019, Mr. Shah launched Prime Oak Capital MHC Fund I, a real estate investment fund whose focus was to acquire manufactured housing communities. Through 2021, the Fund acquired assets of nearly $25M and 300 units, and while many real estate sectors initially suffered during the COVID-19 pandemic, Fund I thrived as tenants remained in place paying rents as agreed. Building upon Fund I’s success, Mr. Shah launched Prime Oak Capital MHC Fund II in late 2022. Together, Funds I and II hold more than $35M in assets under management and $70M in capitalization, with 11 properties and 755 units across four states.

Mr. Shah began his career at Prijems Inc., one of the world’s premier diamond manufacturers. Mr. Shah was appointed Chief Executive Officer in 2009, and under his leadership, grew sales 10x at an annual CAGR of over 20%. Prijems currently employs a team of 50+ individuals worldwide.
