(December 4, 2011, New York) Edgar Perez, Course Director, The Speed Traders Workshop 2011: How High
Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FX
(http://www.thespeedtradersworkshop.com), will present at the 2nd Private Equity Convention Russia (CIS) &
Eurasia (http://www.gdforum.co.uk/index.php?page=11&id=7), 'invitation-only' event exclusively designed for
leading International Investors and Limited Partners (LPs) to meet the highest-quality General Partners (GPs)
operating in Russia, CIS and Eurasia. Perez, author of The Speed Traders, An Insider's Look at the New High-
Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World (http://www.thespeedtraders.com), will
participate on the discussion 'Is "Silicon Valley" Unique and Can it be Reproduced in Eurasia?', with Yury
Frantsuzov, Strategic Business Development Manager with Intel, Peter Loukianoff , Managing Partner with Almaz
Capital Partners, and Dr. Jan Dauman, Director and Senior Partner, Russia with CET (Central Europe Trust).

The aim of this convention - "meeting of minds" is to bring together leading names in private equity from across the
largest and the most interesting continents on the planet and discuss the issues and opportunities in the private equity
industry, acquire new business contacts in a relaxed and comfortable environment. Three out of four BRIC countries
(Russia, India and China) are located here, plus a score of other extremely interesting emerging markets and "old
economies". The potential for growth in the private equity on this continent is immense. Some discussion groups
"skewed" towards Russia and the CIS private equity industry. Nevertheless, Russia is the country that lies both in
Europe and Asia and a huge market in itself. We strongly believe that the most interesting opportunities lie on the
borderlines of interests, discussions and in the forging of personal relationships.

2nd Private Equity Convention Russia (CIS) & Eurasia will be held at the stunning Sofitel London St James, located
in the former home of Cox's and King's bank in the very heart of London, England. This sympathetically renovated
building is English heritage grade II listed and now houses one of London's most unique five-star hotels - combining
traditional British design with a contemporary style that is unmistakably French. Sofitel London St James has one of
the finest addresses in London, right on the corner of Pall Mall and Waterloo Place. The hotel lies in the heart of St.
James's, a prestigious and lively district of London, within walking distance of St. James's Park and Buckingham
Palace. The hotel is also less than a five minute stroll from Trafalgar Square, city centre theatres and the fabulous
shopping on Regent, Piccadilly, Oxford and Bond streets.
