Media Advisory - CIBC World Markets conference to feature senior executives from more than 40 leading business income funds
TORONTO, Aug. 30 /CNW/ - CIBC (CM: TSX; NYSE) - CIBC World Markets will bring together senior management from more than 40 major Canadian income funds to speak to an audience of institutional investors at its 2007 Fall Income Fund Conference, held September 5 - 6, 2007 at the InterContinental Centre in Toronto. This year's conference will have a new format designed to be more dynamic and have greater impact for investors. It will feature three types of presentations: interactive fireside chats; traditional presentations; and panel discussions. The interactive fireside chats and traditional presentations will be delivered via two concurrent streams of 25-minute presentations from senior executives from nearly 40 Business Income Funds. There will be three 45-minute industry-focused panel discussions: Industrial and Materials; Large Cap Issues; and Restaurants, from a dozen leading Canadian funds. These presentations will provide investors with key insight and perspective on individual funds and the overall outlook for the market. The conference will also feature a keynote presentation from Jeff Rubin, Chief Economist and Chief Strategist with CIBC World Markets, on the outlook for the Canadian and global economies. In his presentation, called Containing Contagion, Mr. Rubin will discuss why he sees the current market downturn as temporary. He will also explain why he predicts the Canadian dollar will reach parity by year-end and why the TSX will rebound to hit 15000 within the next six months.
