A Framework That Provides Clarity

During periods of “low visibility,” confusion reigns: for every indication of one trend, there seems to be a countertrend. The key is to glean from the collective wisdom of reliable leading indicators a clear signal that the economy is headed for a turn.

FAQs

How do I get more information about ECRI client services?

We are happy to speak with you directly about our client services. Please contact us via e-mail or phone and we’ll set up a call, video conference or in-person meeting.

Are ECRI services open to individuals?

Yes, some of our clients represent individuals or family offices.

What information do clients get that the public doesn't?

Our clients receive access to private advisory sessions as well as ECRI professional reports and data that is unavailable to the public. We help our clients manage cyclical risk, alerting them to directional shifts in the business cycle so they can better time critical decisions whether they involve asset management, hiring, production and pricing, or monetary policy.

Learn more about our services.

As a public service, ECRI provides limited free access to the U.S. Weekly Leading Index, which is just one of more than a hundred indexes we maintain. Anything we say publicly has already been fully absorbed by our clients.

As a client, would I have access to ECRI principals?

Yes. Private advisory sessions are included as part of our client services.

Contact us for more information.

What can I expect from private advisory sessions?

Following our initial onboarding process, where we establish the most productive way to dovetail ECRI's insights into our clients’ existing decision-making process, we hold regular advisory sessions via phone, video conference and in-person meetings. These meetings are tailored to each client’s specific area of interest: we discuss the nuances of our outlook alongside their own cyclical concerns.

When does ECRI release its latest data and reports?

We are continually updating and releasing new information to our clients through our client website and advisory meetings.

As a public service, ECRI provides limited free access to the U.S. Weekly Leading Index, updated on Friday mornings at 10:30AM ET, which is just one of more than a hundred indexes we maintain. Anything we say publicly has already been fully absorbed by our clients.

How often are indexes updated?

Most of our more than 100 indexes are updated monthly; however, there are a handful that are available weekly, or even daily.

Are ECRI principals available for speaking engagements?

ECRI principals make presentations primarily to, and on behalf of, our clients. On occasion, special speaking engagements also occur.

Contact us for more information.

As a client will you give me the index components?

Our indexes are proprietary. Therefore, as a matter of policy their components are not provided to anybody, including our clients. Through our reports and private meetings our clients are fully apprised of the “story” behind all of our cycle turning point calls. We also work directly with them to customize the integration of cycle risk management into their existing processes.

Who are some of your clients?

Our ability to call the economy's turning points has made ECRI a trusted advisor of Fortune 500 companies, major asset managers and government agencies on all six continents. We help our clients manage cyclical risk, alerting them to directional shifts in the business cycle so they can better time critical decisions whether they involve asset management, hiring, production and pricing, or monetary policy.
