How Sam Tabar Mixed Profit With Philanthropy

From Law To Fund Management

Originally, Sam Tabar attended law school with the intentions of becoming a lawyer. After receiving his degree and working for various firms specializing in business, Tabar set his sights on the world of fund management. Here, Tabar stood out as a particular wise investor and his management advice was taken to heart by his clients. While other investors focused on receiving profits alone, he set out with the goal of making investments towards a better future. He wanted to prove that profits and progress are complimentary.

Progress Through Investment

A major focus of Tabar’s career is investing in companies with a progressive goal in mind. A great example of this is the company Shethinx. Shethinx uses feminine hygiene products to promote the empowerment of women across the world. Solutions like these are found only in the free market because they rely on the willing choices of individuals. When people are empowered through capitalism, they naturally tend to air on the side of social progress. The success of Tabar’s socially conscious investments made him a natural fit for Full Cycle, a company specializing in alternative energy companies.

Taking Things Full Cycle

Recently, Full Cycle Fund named Sam Tabar as its new Chief Officer of Operations. The Full Cycle Fund provides companies specializing in new approaches to waste management and alternative energy with the funding they need to thrive. As the oil and coal industry shrink, many investors believe other, cleaner forms of energy will naturally take their place.  He has already made a fortune helping to advance companies that empower people, and there is noone who understands this better than him.
