WAIS Canada is Canada’s premier alternative investment event when it comes to the scope, depth and breadth of its attendees, be it hedge fund managers, exempt market product providers and dealers, investors, advisors, financiers, service providers or other industry experts.

Radius Financial Education (Radius), a division of CHW Inc., has been producing high level conferences within the financial services sector in Canada for over 15 years. As Canada’s leading producer of conferences within the financial sector, Radius events focus completely on education and networking through an exchange of unbiased ideas and information, allowing our delegates to be leaders in their chosen fields.



15+ years of running Canada’s largest alternative conference has enabled us to cultivate relationships with some of the top performing hedge fund managers, exempt market product providers and the Canadian investor community. With over 350+ attendees annually, the quality of WAISC attendance affirms its North American relevance and reputation as the most comprehensive investment forum on the Canadian alternative investment calendar. WAISC 2017 will once again be the largest gathering of alternative investments and their investors in Canada and an event you won’t want to miss.
