According to Art Station, Sam Tabar then moved on to Bank of America Merrill Lynch where he was their Asia-Pacific region’s head of capital strategy and director.

Before he left the firm in 2012 to become Adanac LLC, BVI’s director, he had connected with more than 1,200 institutional investors. While at Adanac he invested in start-ups like Thinx and Verboten as well as real estate.
In 2013 Sam Tabar became a senior associate at Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP. His focus there was on regulatory and compliance issues and hedge fund structure and formation.
