Susquehanna Graduate to Discuss Economics and the Stock Market
Published on March 31, 2014
W. Talbot Daley, a graduate of Susquehanna University, returns to campus on April 8 to discuss “Temperament, Innovation and the Stock Market” at 7 p.m. in Faylor Lecture Hall in Fisher Hall. His talk, which is free and open to the public, will explore national and global perspectives on the current economic environment and the next phase of global innovation.
With more than 30 years of experience in the financial industry, Daley has developed a successful career in money management. As a managing director and senior investment specialist at ClearBridge Investments, an equity affiliate of Legg Mason, he is dedicated to providing investors competitive long-term results.
The Susquehanna Valley Estate Planning Council and Susquehanna’s student group Enactus will host a reception and buffet dinner prior to the lecture, to which the public is invited. The cost is $40; the reception begins at 5:30 p.m., with dinner at 6 p.m. Interested parties should register by April 4 with Lorna Gessner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Tal Daley is a compelling speaker who makes investing and economics easy to understand,” said Associate Professor of History David Imhoof. “Anyone who has even a passing interest in the economy and the markets will find his talk interesting, and particularly those who are thinking about estate planning.”
Daley joined Legg Mason in 1984 as a financial adviser and later moved to branch management. In 1987, he was named the market strategist for the company’s research department, responsible for equity, market and economic information to the firm’s financial advisers. From 1992 to 2007, he was director of Legg Mason Funds Marketing responsible for sales and marketing of all Legg Mason mutual funds.
In 2006, Daley established a scholarship at Susquehanna University for first-year students interested in history as a testament to his passionate belief in the importance of the subject and in recognition of the lifelong benefits he received from his Susquehanna education. He also arranges internships at Legg Mason for Susquehanna students.
Daley is a board member and former chairman of Junior Achievement of Central Maryland, a non-profit organization dedicated to the economic education of children in kindergarten through 12th grade. He is also a member of the board of trustees for the Maryland Historical Society.
