Yes, there are private individuals who are professional members; however, all members pay the same rate.
Our members receive access to private advisory sessions and complete access to all ECRI professional reports and data. Learn about our services.
As a public service, ECRI provides limited free access to the U.S. Weekly Leading Index (WLI), U.S. Future Inflation Gauge (FIG), and U.S. Leading Home Price Index. In other words, the public has limited access to the tip of the iceberg.
Yes. Private advisory sessions are included as part of our Level A professional services.
We hold regular advisory sessions with our members via phone, video conference, Webex, and in-person meetings. These meetings are tailored to your specific area of interest: we discuss the nuances of our outlook alongside your own concerns, regardless of how specialized those questions may be. The sessions also provide an opportunity to discuss how to dovetail ECRI's insights into your firm’s existing decision-making process.
Advisory sessions are the forum for "kicking the tires" to gain full conviction about ECRI's turning point calls and divergences from the consensus view. This conviction is key to unlocking the full value of our work.
We are continually updating and releasing new information to our professional members via our professional member server and advisory meetings. On Friday mornings we issue selected updates to our publicly released data.
Most of the over 100 ECRI indexes are updated monthly; however, there are a handful that are available weekly, or even daily.
ECRI principals make presentations primarily to our Professional A membership. On occasion, special speaking engagements can be arranged.
The clarity and conviction to break from the crowd at the right time.
ECRI has had a very stellar record. They've been making pretty bold calls and going against the conventional wisdom. So far their record has been one of the most impressive, and has been written up in the press as well as talked about in policy circles.
ECRI is perhaps the only organisation to give advance warning of each of the past three recessions; just as impressive, it has never issued a false alarm.
Inflation Ahoy! We're indebted to the ECRI, that unnapping watchdog of inflation, for the FIG data.
ECRI can justify a certain smugness now that business cycles are back in fashion. The institute called the last two recessions and the current recovery months ahead of the pack.
For ourselves, in this cycle, we'll line up with ECRI.
