NEW YORK, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- With credit markets in turmoil, the economy in a seeming slowdown and a presidential election on the horizon, Dow Jones will host the 2008 Private Equity Analyst Outlook Conference on January 29-30 at the Grand Hyatt in New York to give investors the most clear, comprehensive forecast of what the year ahead holds for private equity.

In addition to investigating and highlighting trends in energy, technology, and health care investing, this year's Conference features unscripted keynote interviews with Eric Doppstadt, director of private equity for The Ford Foundation, Louis Gerstner, Jr., chairman of The Carlyle Group, and Vinay Pande, managing director and chief investment advisor at Deutsche Bank.

There will be a joint-keynote interview with Tony James, president and COO of The Blackstone Group, and Josh Harris, president and founding partner of Apollo Management discussing why they sold stakes of their firms to foreign investors as well as what they see for the industry going forward. Also taking the stage for their own joint-keynote will be Richard Kimball, founding general partner of Technology Crossover Ventures, and Steve Pagliuca, managing director of Bain Capital.

The Wall Street Journal Online's executive editor, Alan Murray, will deliver his annual outlook for the year ahead in politics, including the impact the presidential election and possible legislation will have on the private equity industry. As an added bonus, The Wall Street Journal's popular wine columnists, Dorothy Gaiter and John Brecher, will lead an exclusive wine tasting at the end of the Conference's first day.
