A strategic partner

Our cyclical insights give you an edge in critical
Here’s how ECRI is unique, and why you’ll want us by your side  

The leading predictor of cycle turning points.

Independent. Objective.
ECRI is not linked to or funded by any sponsoring organization. Our views are unbiased.

As impartial observers, we offer a clear picture of the entire economic landscape. Our purpose is to serve clients with prompt and reliable insights for cycle risk management.

To put it simply, our mission is to empower clients with actionable information about cycle turning points.
We rely on a repeatable process born from decades of knowledge and experience.
Most in the industry rely on linearized econometric models fitted to the past to predict the future. A key problem is that their largest forecasting errors occur around cyclical turning points, because cycles are produced by nonlinear linkages in the economy.

ECRI addresses this problem.

Our framework monitors the risk of turning points in key cycles in coming months and quarters.
