NEW YORK , May 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Brean Murray , Carret & Co. is proud to host the 2008 All-Cap All-China Conference on May 19th and 20th at the Waldorf- Astoria in New York City . This event will be one of the largest conferences ever held for publicly traded U.S. listed Chinese companies. China has had the fastest growing economy in the world over the last decade, posting over 10% growth per annum, and it is expected to continue at this pace over the next decade. Investors from all over the world are investing in publicly traded Chinese companies as a way to participate in this wealth creation.
This premier event continues Brean Murray , Carret & Co.'s commitment to its clients, both companies and investors, by providing the newest and potentially most lucrative investment ideas among Chinese companies. Unlike the largest Wall Street firms that only focus on the biggest companies in the China market, the investment opportunities presented at the conference are often not well known to Wall Street. Brean Murray , Carret & Co. believes the presenting companies, many small caps among them, often provide the greatest value. There are over 70 presenting companies from various industry groups including healthcare, industrial, agriculture, consumer products, technology and energy.
Brean Murray , Carret & Co. has established a significant presence in China with offices in Beijing and Shanghai , providing a full complement of investment banking services, including capital raising, financial advisory, sales and trading and equity research on numerous China-based companies listed on U.S. markets. Brean Murray , Carret & Co.'s reputation has grown significantly as one of the leading investment banking firms serving the China market, and continues to build upon its existing client relationships and establish new ones with both Chinese companies and investors who are interested in investing in these emerging growth businesses.
In addition, we are pleased that the Honorable Joseph R. Biden, Jr., Chairman of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, will be the featured lunch speaker on Monday, May 19th . He will be discussing China and the 21st century, and his thoughts on current and future Sino-U.S. relations. Senator Biden is currently serving his sixth term as a Delaware Senator. He is recognized as one of the nation's most powerful and influential voices on foreign relations, terrorism, drug policy, and crime prevention. As Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Senator Biden has played a pivotal role in shaping U.S. foreign policy for over three decades.
