Attorney and Capital Strategist Sam Tabar has offered his insights into successfully investing for retirement and other long-term financial goals. Tabar focuses on gaining on markets upsides while limiting the risk on downward trends.
One particular thing he advises against is investing in commodities as they are riskier than stocks and bonds due to their volatility. He also advocates for investing in a private business such as a social startup. These startups can provide a good income while also helping out others. The biggest takeaway, though, is that everyone needs to have a properly diversified portfolio. When investing it is never a good idea to concentrate on any one company or even sector, but to instead spread your money around to all sectors of business activity, invest domestically as well as internationally, and hold bonds as well. He also remarks that now is always the best time to start investing.

Since 2014 he has been a Partner at FullCycyleFund and is responsible for raising capital, all legal, operational, and compliance issues, as well as the company’s fund management strategy.
