Ms. Beaumont is part of the Family Office Investments session on Wednesday September 7th June 19th at 1.15pm, and will be discussing family office investment issues regarding hedge fund allocations to managers on a global basis including Asia.

Candice Beaumont was one of the early advocates of the peak oil theory, having made a very bullish prediction on oil at $28 per barrel a few years ago. Together with other experts such as T. Boone Pickens and Matthew Simmons she forecast oil would go over $100 several years ago, and is sought after for her advice on investing in a peak oil environment, heavy oil and energy alternatives. She recently projected that based on the current supply and demand economics that people should adapt to a high oil price environment and that we need to increase heavy oil production in order to meet increasing global demand for oil, due to the economic growth in emerging markets such as India and China.
