Carolyn Dolan, a founding principal of Samson Capital Advisors, urged Fordham Business students to think independently and be wary of “lemming-type behavior in the investment world,” during a guest lecture in the class of John Finnerty, Ph.D., professor of finance, on Sept. 28. A good money manager, she said, has the ability to step back and analyze commonly accepted investment strategies in light of their client’s long-term objectives. Dolan returned to Finnerty’s class on Oct. 12 to deliver a second guest lecture on active fixed income investment management.

A Fordham University trustee and a member of the President’s Council, Dolan began her career as a social worker with the New Jersey Department of Health’s Division of Youth and Family Services after graduating from Marymount College in 1968. She received a master’s degree from Columbia University School of Social Work in 1977, and one year later earned an M.B.A. in finance from Columbia. In 1982, she co-founded Offitbank, now Offit Investment Group, where she served as a senior managing director.
