Sam Tabar has led a successful and diverse career in New York city. Not only is he known as a prominent attorney in the city, but he is also a capital strategist. After graduating from Oxford University with Honors, Sam attended Columbia Law School. Here, he worked for their publication, the Columbia Business Law Review, as the Associate Editor.
His website shows that Sam’s career began in 2001 as an Associate at Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher & Flom LLP, prior to its flourishment. During his three years at Skadden, he worked with clients on hedge fund structure and formation, side letters, investment management agreements, employment issues, private placement memoranda, and regulatory and compliance issues
Following this position, Sam left the legal field. He moved onto bigger roles in business development as well as capital strategy. Sam worked at an investment adviser firm called PMA Investment Advisers, which is based in Hong Kong. He acted as the Managing Director & Co-Head of Business Development. While at PMA Investment Advisers, he managed a $2 billion hedge fund by working on all of its facets of investor and relations. About.me shows that Sam also worked on a proprietary marketing plan that earned the business over 2000 potential clients. In this plan, he targeted institutional investors, global high net worth clients, and large family offices. Sam also assisted in the firm’s acquisition of $1.2 billion in assets while working with their CEO. Sam was clearly a strong asset to their team.
Sam moved on with his career to join Bank of America Merrill Lynch, working for their Asia-Pacific Region as its Director and Head of Capital Strategy. Tabar was similarly successful here while working on business development and client acquisition. His counsel to clients about their hedge funds and investments helped the company gain and retain over 1200 investors.
After his venture away from a career in law, Tabar later joined Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP as a Senior Associate. Here, he continued to cater to hedge funds, compliance issues, fund formation and structure, and regulatory issues. Sam is also all about helping others, as his GoFundMe efforts have shown. So he’s really become a philanthropist in his own right, in addition to being the new CEO of FullCycle Fund.
