Chadd has spent more than 25 years as an attorney in the state of Arkansas. He started his own law firm in 1995, and in 2011 was appointed by the Governor of Arkansas to serve the Fourth Judicial District as a Circuit Trial Judge for two years.
After more than a decade practicing law, he discovered his passion for investing and helping clients achieve their financial goals. In the early 2000s he started a hedge fund, and with the help of a small team, developed a proprietary algorithm designed to help shelter investors from risk by allocating assets based on the current economic cycle. Chadd published a white paper on this concept, which can be found here: Adjusting Risk Within the Economic Cycle. A few short years later, he founded Cabana, LLC which is now the registered investment adviser within The Cabana Group. Cabana, LLC was ranked the #1 fastest-growing RIA in the country in 2018 by Financial Advisor magazine and was named 2018’s Asset Manager of the Year in the Southern U.S. by Wealth and Finance International.*
Today, The Cabana Group or “Cabana” is the parent company of Cabana, LLC (dba Cabana Asset Management and Cabana Retirement Solutions) and Cabana Financial and shares common ownership with Cabana Law Group (dba Prevost, Shaff Mason and Carns, PLLC in the state of Texas). When forming Cabana, Chadd’s primary goal was to combine specialized knowledge in several professions to better serve individual investors, businesses and financial advisors.
Chadd graduated from the University of Arkansas with a B.A. in Psychology and went on to earn a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Denver. In 2013, he graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Master of Laws degree in Financial Services and Wealth Management from Thomas Jefferson School of Law.
