Investment Expert to Take Part in Panel Discussion on Energy, Environment & SRI Investing

NEW YORK, NEW YORK--(Marketwire - June 12, 2008) - Candice Beaumont was selected as a speaker at the 14th annual Global Alternative Investment Management Forum in Monaco taking place on June 17-19th at the Grimaldi Forum, Monaco. Ms. Beaumont is part of the Energy, Environment & Socially Responsible Investing session on Thursday June 19th at 3.15pm, and will be examining the issues involving direct investment in energy, environment and socially responsible investing.

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, as well as on 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 oil is going to climb towards $200 a barrel.
