Sam Tabar has made a name for himself in New York City as a prominent attorney and capital strategist. We just reconnected on Facebook and I am really happy that he has utilized all of his big ideas and has gone forward in making an impact. I met Tabar back when his career was just beginning at Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher & Flom LLP as an Associate and later he served as “Managing Director & Co-Head of Business Development at SPARX Group Co./PMA Investment Advisors” and “Director and Head of Capital Strategy for the Asia-Pacific Region” at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. In addition to his experience in this field, he has served as a Senior Associate Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP where he addressed issues in fund formation and structure, regulatory and compliance issues, and hedge funds.
The Foundation of His Success
Tabar is a graduate of Oxford University with honors and later, went to Columbia Law School. Here he served on the Columbia Business Law Review as the Associate Editor. After successful graduation, he joined one of the world’s most prestigious law firms, Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher & Flom LLP. At this firm, he was responsible for counseling clients on investment management agreements, employment issues, private placement memoranda, and side letters.
Sam Tabar managed all aspects of global marketing and investor relations while at PMA Investment Advisers. This $2 billion hedge fund was just one of his accomplishments. He has a Rolodex of over 2000 potentially qualified investors. In addition, he has over 400 additional investor introductions. He has helped his firm raise over $1 billion in assets by working closely with the CEO and other key members.
While at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Tabar helped his hedge fund clients with foundations, endowments, pensions, and funds of funds. With the contacts he gained from Bank of America Merrill Lynch, he was able to invest in properties and American start-ups.
His Success With Commodities
Taber was able to achieve success with commodities also through careful research and investment. He helps clients explore the history of commodities and predict how the commodity will perform based upon the predictions. He knows how to make a safe commodity investment and avoid poorly managed funds.
He helped his clients avoid crisis with US Natural Gas Fund. When the UNG fell more than 75 percent, he advised clients from investing in the fund because of the tremendous losses that others suffered from a high demand. Until a resolution is reached, perhaps creation of more shares, it’s simply not a wise investment.
He also advised his clients against the United States Oil Fund when the prices fell 50 percent lower than the most recent crude oil prices. Commodities, in general, should not be sold or invested in if the pricing is not accurate and up-to-date.
