Have a question about investments? The first piece of advice that Sam Taber (prominent attorney and capital strategist) may give is when it comes to commodity investment choose one that is well managed. A well-managed investment can very easily be a good investment, whereas one that is neglected can cause you to lose a lot of money. He may use the US Natural Gas Fund as a prime example. Their demand was so high that they could not meet it. So those that invested early lose quite a bit of money. Poor management is something that can be noticed if you do your research. Regardless of the type of commodity investment or what country it is in, always look for mismanagement.
Sam Tabar not only enjoys giving investment advice, but he also enjoy helping the less fortunate. If the organization seems worthwhile, he will consider adding it to his investment portfolio. He was so enthralled by the purpose and effort of THINX that he did just that and opened his own charitable effort as well.
THINX is a startup company that helps less fortunate women obtain reusable sanitary pads. In many places throughout the African continent women will stay home from school and work when they are menstruating. This is a normal practice, part of their tradition. THINX makes five fashionable designs of underwear. Whenever a purchase is made, for example a woman in Uganda will receive seven reusable pads.
Mr. Tabar graduated from Columbia Law School then went on to become an associate at Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher & Flom LLP. At that time also Mr. Tabar became the Managing Director & Co-Head of Business Development at SPARX Group Co./PMA Investment Advisors. Later in 2014 Mr. Tabar became Senior Associate at Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP. He works with regulatory and compliance issues, hedge funds and many other investments matters. Right now in 2015, he’s the CEO of FullCycle Fund.
