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.

ECRI Professional Services

ECRI professional services deliver a clear view of the path ahead. Forewarned of upcoming turning points in economic and inflation cycles, our members have the clarity and conviction to break from the crowd at the right time.

A Unique Competitive Advantage

Investment Managers

For decades, investment managers have looked to us to navigate cyclical shifts in market perceptions. This has typically enabled them to lower risk, increase returns, and outperform their peers. A 5% increase in annual returns for our members is not unusual - $500 million on a $10 billion portfolio.

Business Executives

Business executives use ECRI to improve the timing of their critical tactical decisions such as building or reducing inventory and adjusting pricing and staffing levels. Members are prepared for the economy's swings – not surprised by them – and therefore succeed when their competition stumbles.

Government Policymakers

Government policymakers can use ECRI to improve the timing of policy decisions. Since monetary policy typically lags economic activity and fiscal policy must be sensitive to the cyclical outlook, a reliable assessment of turning point risk should produce smoother macroeconomic outcomes.

Testimonial

Congrats on having the only coherent analysis available.
- ECRI Professional Member
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.
- IMF
In March [2009], the month the market scraped bottom, ECRI went forth with [a] tablepounding historical observation… The implication could not have been clearer that a market rally, when it started, would be no sucker's affair but the real McCoy.
- Grant's Interest Rate Observer
"eerily accurate"
- National Public Radio
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.
- The Economist
For ourselves, in this cycle, we'll line up with ECRI.
