Media Invitation - Morningstar Investment Conference draws on top experts for strategies on taming market cycles, Toronto, June 11, 2008.



    TORONTO, June 4 /CNW/ -  Media representatives are cordially invited to
attend the sixth annual Morningstar Investment Conference at The Carlu in
Toronto on Wednesday June 11, 2008. During the conference, leading investment
professionals will share their strategies to mitigate the effects of market
swings on investors and their portfolios.

    
    WHAT:       Given the volatility that financial markets around the world
                have experienced since last summer, uncertainty over what
                lies ahead has left many investors unwilling to make new
                commitments to long-term asset classes. They have many
                questions about what to do next. During the one day seminar-
                style conference, we will draw on top experts in their fields
                to discuss strategies and share insights on specific types of
                investments to consider, how to evaluate them, and how they
                fit into diversified portfolios. We will also release the
                results of Morningstar's Investment Manager survey. In the
                closing session, a distinguished panel of investment
                strategists and market watchers will discuss their own
                beliefs about where the best opportunities lie.
