Conference Open / Keynote Speaker
- 18th Prime Minister of Canada
The Right Honorable Brian Mulroney
Zanetti Room
6:50am




It is a distinct honor for Noble Financial Capital Markets to welcome the 18th Prime Minister of Canada to address our conference and bring a decidedly international take on the US Presidential Election. As Canada’s head of state through the Reagan years and the transition of the White House to George H. Bush and again to Bill Clinton, Mr. Mulroney offers a unique perspective and insight on international politics and foreign relations. As Prime Minister for close to a decade, he significantly furthered his country’s global trade relationships. Together with the late President Ronald Reagan, he pioneered the first Canada-US Free Trade Agreement and ultimately the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Domestically, his Progressive Conservative government introduced a series of privatizations, a low inflation policy, historic tax reform, extensive deregulation and expenditure reduction policies that continue to be the foundation of Canada’s impressive economic performance today.


Panel Presentation

Zanetti Room (same room used for Mr. Mulroney’s keynote address)
2:00pm - 3:00pm

Commodities and Financials in Un-chartered Waters;
What’s Ahead and How to Position Your Company
 

The real estate market is reflecting one of the worse environments since the Great Depression, with home prices down 14.1% in the first quarter 2008 versus the 10.2% drop in 1932. The financial markets are in crises, with large banks in free fall and even a prominent brokerage firm falling victim. The S&P Financial Services Index is down a whopping 37.6% since the beginning of the year and 56% from its highs in mid February 2007. There are persistent inflation pressures, with oil hitting as high as $149 a barrel, up over 80% at one point from year earlier levels.

That’s looking in the rear view mirror. So, what’s ahead? Where does the stock market, the economy go from here? How should you manage your business in the challenging economic headwinds? What is the appropriate financial structure for businesses? Over levered? What do you do in tight credit markets?

This panel is expected to provide guidance on 1) what to expect from the economy and the financial markets, 2) how you should prepare, and 3) where you should turn for help. The panel includes:

Moderator:
Bruce Rosetto   
A corporate and securities attorney and shareholder of international, full-service law firm of Greenberg Traurig, Mr. Rosetto represents private and public companies, private equity funds, investment banks and banks.

Panelists: 
 

Clyde Harrison – He’s back!
With over 150 requests for his keynote address to Noble’s 2007 conference, this is an encore appearance from his incredibly insightful economic calls last year. Mr. Harrison was Carl Ichan’s partner for ten years and founded the Jim Rogers Raw Materials Fund. He has served as a member of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the Chicago Board Options Exchange and the International Monetary Market. He recently was a keynote speaker for the Federal Reserve conference on the future of the American dollar. He developed the Brookshire Indices and is the President of the Brookshire Core Funds.  

Mr. Harrison has addressed leaders of business and governments worldwide and has a unique and thought-provoking take on the global economy.   

Michael Diana   A recovery in the general stock market typically has not happened without a recovery in the Financial stocks. Mr. Diana is Noble’s 25-year, veteran senior financial services analyst. He is among the few on the Street that has been through several cycles, including the real estate depression of the late 1980s, tight credit markets in the 1990s, the Savings & Loan Crisis, the restrictions on highly leveraged transactions, and the subprime mortgage blowup in the late 1990s.  

Mr. Diana has 9 years experience as an investment banker and 16 years as an equity research analyst. He started his career on the investment banking side with First Boston and Prudential Securities, with a focus on banks and mortgage companies. He became an equity research analyst at Bear Stearns in 1994 and covered mid-cap banks and specialty finance companies, later to join Citigroup. He has had broad research coverage, with emphasis on banks, thrifts and mortgage companies, of all market caps and geographies. He ranked second in 2007 in Institutional Investor for Banks/MidCap among analysts focusing on SmallCap Banks.
