"Here Be Dragons: Navigating Uncharted Waters of the Economy and Financial Markets"
by G. Scott Clemons ‘90

Join us for this exciting inaugural event of the new Princeton Club Lecture Series (just us Princetonians! …the bulldogs and crimson will have to admire from the sidelines). One of our own tigers, Scott Clemons ‘90, the Chief Investment Strategist and Managing Director of Brown Brothers Harriman, will give us his insights on the financial markets, culture and a changing world. Scott was our luncheon speaker in February 2017, and enthralled our Club with riveting talk on 15th century printing history and politics. Scott left us all wanting to hear more, and has generously agreed to join us again as the inaugural speaker in our new lecture series. Scott is a dynamic intellectual and you do not want to miss his fascinating insights. This event will be part presentation and part conversation as Scott leads us through a dialogue on historical and current topics shaping our world.
