Coming up next month, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will be traveling to Hong Kong to speak to the CLSA Investors Forum, an annual conference of global investment managers.  Past guests of the CLSA include former President and Vice President Bill Clinton and Al Gore, and former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan. 

CLSA spokeswoman Simon Wheeler said in a statement, "Our keynote speakers are notable luminaries who often address topics that go beyond traditional finance such as geopolitics."

"We just felt it would be a fabulous opportunity for CLSA clients to hear from Mrs. Palin," Wheeler said, noting that CLSA approached Palin with the offer.  She also mentioned the conference aimed to present investors with "a diversity of views that potentially influence decision-makers who help shape the markets."

Palin's address will take place Sept. 23 and will mark the former governor's first commercial speaking engagement.
