Sam Tabar is an attorney and financial investment dynamo. He has worked for many years as a financial capital strategist and in doing so he has made tons of money for himself and his clients. He was trained as a lawyer at Columbia University and while there he formed key relationships that allowed him to land a job at the infamous law firm Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher & Flom LLP. Sam’s responsibilities while here included advising hedge funds and other big investors on the best way to handle their millions of dollars of assets in the market. He handled the issuing of side letters, regulatory and compliance issues, investment management agreements, and fund structuring. This inspired Sam to get directly involved with Investment Advisement and so he branched out and joined Sparx Group in 2004.
Sam Tabar was a rockstar at Sparx Group and so he became the Managing Director and head of Business Development within a few years. Sam wants to share some of his hard earned wisdom about the financial markets so that new investors can make smart decisions that will help them increase their retirement savings and live the life of their dreams. Sam Tabar believes that there is little more important than making sure you have a diversified portfolio of stocks. This matters for controlling risk. If you put everything you have in just one stock you can be wiped out of the market in a single day when things go bad. Even if you just lose a significant portion of your stocks value you will be discouraged and want to give up. Investing is largely a psychological game where you need to make decisions that may feel counterintuitive to win.
Sam Tabar thinks new investors should try to keep their risk down by sticking to mutual funds. These are generally smart and safe investments that profit for their investors year after year.
