Sam Tabar Uses His Investment Skills To Help Others
In most cases members of the investment industry are not generally known for their assistance for others, but former attorney and current investment specialist Sam Tabar is changing the way the financial industry is seen in terms of community work. Tabar has recently been assisting with the startup company THINX, which is attempting to create ways of providing feminine hygiene products for women in Africa who often miss out on parts of their lives because of a lack of hygiene items needed to live their everyday lives.
After graduating from Oxford University and Columbia Law School Sam made his way to the prestigious Skadden law firm; it was during this period of time that Tabar’s interest in workplace and investment law reached its peak and led to him entering the world of finance, initially as a specialist lawyer and later as a dedicated investor. Over the course of his career Sam has worked for some of the world’s top investment and law firms and become known as one of the top investors in the world handling hedge funds with values up to $2 billion.
In 2013, Sam Tabar returned to legal practice, but has retained his interests in investing that have seen him look for startups he can assist in building their business model over a number of years. The linkup Tabar has now developed with THINX shows the concern he has for social issues and reflects his own belief in business giving back to communities around the world. THINX has recently been developing an underwear range that will be sold to women in the U.S. and around the world; the social conscience of Sam and the business leaders at THINX sees the company provide a washable hygiene product to a woman in Africa for each piece of underwear sold by the company.
