Kyle Bass in a Downward Spiral

Kyle Bass and his Hayman Capital Management hedge fund recently sold off most of their stocks, bonds and other positions, and placed most of their money on a strategy based on a falling Chinese economy. He believes that the Chinese economic troubles are much worse than most economists are projecting. If he is correct, the Chinese banking system is due for a major decline. Already bonds are defaulting and he believes this will get worse, causing the yuan and the Hong Kong Dollar to decline against the US dollar. He is investing in US Dollar denominated securities believing that the US dollar will rally substantially when the Chinese economy declines further.

Kyle Bass’s claim to fame was the calling correctly the 2008 financial crisis. He benefited from investing correctly. Since his short term success in the markets, he has been having a hard time. He has made call after call that was dead wrong. He takes any opportunity to do on national television to taut his theories, but so far he has been on the wrong side of the markets. Last year when Argentina’s economy fell apart under the rule of Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, Bass was singing her praises. Argentina defaulted on their debt, sending the country into an impoverished state.

Bass’s shady ties to Kirchner are no surprise to most, who see him as one of her lackeys. It is claimed that he has a good relationship with her. Kirchner has been accused of ripping off her own people but Bass is a strong supporter. Seems that he has not only gone wrong with his investment decisions, but also in his choice of allies. Bass seems to be in a downward spiral after starting out so well.

Sam Tabar Is The New Chief Operating Officer for FullCycle Energy

PRNewswire reports that FullCycle Energy Fund has a new Chief Operating Officer and his name is Sam Tabar. Tabar has previous experience overseeing budget strategy for financial institutions and has also worked as an attorney in New York.

LinkedIn tells us Tabar previously held the position of co-head of marketing for Sparx Group, the largest independent fund in Asia-Pacific, where he managed their global marketing effort. Following his role at Sparx, Tabar worked as head of capital strategy for Merrill Lynch (Bank of America) providing services that specifically targeted institutional investors, such as: foundations, endowments, pensions and family offices.

Prior to working in the financial institution, Tabar was practicing law. He received a Bachelor of Arts from Oxford University and went on to get his Masters of Law from Columbia Law School, where he also worked as editor of the Columbia Business Law journal. Tabar is still a member of the New York State Bar and has worked for such firms as Schulte, Roth & Zabel and Skadden, Arps, Meagher, Slate & Flom.

Following his graduation from Columbia Law School, Tabar began working for Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher & Flom LLP as an associate. His duties included counseling clients on financial issues. He left Skadden in 2004 to join SPARX Group Co./PMA Investment Advisors. Not long after joining Sparx, he was named the managing director & co-head of business development which gave him the experience he needed to later become the director and head of capital strategy for the Asia-Pacific region at Merrill Lynch. He then left Merrill Lynch to once again practice law, this time with the firm Schulte, Roth & Zabel, where he remained until August 2014.

CrunchBase also tells us Tabar has recently been appointed the chief operating officer for FullCycle Energy Fund, whose mission, according to a press release, is to “invest in new and retrofit traditional electric generation plants from high cost, polluting fuels to lower cost and environmentally friendly fuels dribbled from Municipal Solid Waste.”  There’s more about Sam on About.me, where you can find his links and a full bio.
