When it comes to the world of high finance, it takes a special kind of person to stand out from the competition. While countless people in financial management firms have high degrees of education along with experience in various money matters, it is those people who have a sense of what will work and what won’t who stand head and shoulders above all others. It is a skill that cannot be taught in a classroom, nor learned on a job. Rather, it is a skill one seems to be born with and is cultivated throughout the years. One of these people is Sam Tabar, who has combined his skills as an attorney and financial manager to become one of the best investment professionals in the world.

 Specializing in investor relations and strategic marketing plans for hedge funds, Sam Tabar took the skills learned at Oxford University and Columbia Law School and put them to good use immediately. After graduating from Columbia in 2001, Sam became an Associate at the law firm of Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher and Flom LLP and put his talents to work counseling clients on hedge funds, employment issues and regulatory and compliance information. Although 2o04 is the year that Tabar’s career really took off. Leaving Skadden to join Sparx Group/PMA Investment Advisors in 2004, he once again established himself as the man with all the answers. Initially hired as counsel for the investment firm, he found himself promoted to Managing Director and Co-Head of Business Development.

Given the task of managing all aspects of a $2 billion hedge fund, Sam didn’t back down from the challenge. Tabar used his legal and financial knowledge to design a global strategic marketing plan targeting high net worth clients. As a result of his work, he was able to develop over 400 investor introductions to go along with his personal rolodex of more than 2000 potential investors, once again showcasing his ability to take on a challenge that others shy away from and instead use his uncanny ability to take it to the next level.

 Sam has spent years working with investors all around the world, giving him a unique global perspective that few others can match. Be sure to stop by his website, to get more on Sam. Some interesting facts that I found is that Sam is fluent in English, French, and even Japanese, a skill he learned during his visit to the Asia-Pacific region as a representative of Merrill Lynch. While at Merrill Lynch from 2011-2014, he added an additional 1,250 investors to his rolodex, once again showing a talent for attracting those with money to invest in promising companies and ideas.

 With interests including traveling the world and hosting events, it’s hard to imagine the next challenge Sam Tabar will accept. However, the one thing that is known about Sam is that whatever challenge he undertakes, he will once again use his talents to leave it more successful than it was before his arrival. While his track record speaks for itself, it’s clear Sam Tabar truly is a man for the ages.
