Vista Research was founded in 2001 to connect clients to individuals with operational experience in industries such as technology, media, telecommunications, retail/consumer, energy, aerospace and healthcare. These industry professionals, Members of our Society of Industry Leaders (SIL), participate in structured discussions with clients in which both SIL Members and clients understand their respective obligations regarding regulations, securities laws and confidentiality. Vista has developed a compliance framework of documentation and education, including the SIL Terms and Conditions and the SIL Code of Ethics. SIL Members must affirm their compliance on a regular basis.
