NEW YORK — In the wake of 2011’s market-shifting events such as turbulence in the Middle East and the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Bloomberg LINK will convene leading investors from mutual funds, hedge funds and private equity at the Bloomberg Money Managers Conference to discuss how to manage investments in an unpredictable global economy.

The Conference, to be held on Tuesday, June 14th at the State Room in Boston, MA, will look at how investors can prepare for unexpected events that impact markets, as well as at exit strategies for navigating the unthinkable. Among other topics, speakers will debate the equities market and whether the crash of 2008 could repeat itself, contingency plans should China’s rising economy fail, and investment strategies for energy and infrastructure.

“Financial markets were significantly impacted by some of this year’s ‘Black Swan’ events,” said Robert Bierman, head of Bloomberg LINK. “Participants at this conference will discuss the current events that affect their investments and learn strategies for managing assets in the face of a volatile economy.”

Key speakers include:

-Peter Andersen, Chief Investment Officer, Congress Wealth Management

-Dean Curnutt, Founder, CEO and President, Macro Risk Advisors

-Christopher J. Goolgasian, Senior Portfolio Manager, State Street Global Advisors Multi Asset Class Solutions (MACS)
