InterAxS has a strict compliance framework in place for any speaker or expert participating in our events.
We work with our client base to ensure their own internal compliance obligations are met to the highest standard.
Any expert speaker participating will have successfully completed a stringent vetting process, undergone compliance training and agreed to the InterAxS terms and conditions.
If a candidate is unable to complete any aspect of the screening process they will not be eligible to participate in an InterAxS event.

However, speakers and/or attendees at InterAxS events may be representatives of regulated banks, broker dealers, asset managers, hedge funds, insurance companies etc. Alternatively, they may be private or institutional investors, or companies seeking investment, or they may be representatives of governmental institutions.
