NEW YORK, NEW YORK--(Marketwire - July 9, 2008) - Candice Beaumont will be presenting at the Family Office High Net Worth Forum in Newport, RI taking place on July 9th to 11th at the Hyatt Newport. Ms. Beaumont will speak on the Family Office Roundtable on Wednesday July 9th at 1.20pm.

Ms Beaumont is also speaking on the Direct Energy Investing Panel on Thursday July 10th at 5.30pm which will examine different public and private equity energy strategies including structured products and MLPs.

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. 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 ultimately going to climb towards $200 a barrel.
