We simply do what you would do... if you just had the time and/or the resources! For almost 40 years we have been following the financial markets closely and providing hands on information to help with your asset allocation decision making. We gather all of the world’s leading research and carefully analyse what’s relevant. We compare and weigh the different arguments and discuss the most likely scenarios. Our reports are quick and easy to read and provide clear views with concrete market predictions.

Our research platform is conveniently grouped into 3 research areas. Between the 3 areas you will find 21 publications and tools, to match your specific needs. We have multiple packages available designed to cater to your specific needs.

To suit our large international client base many of our reports and services are provided in three languages: English, German and Dutch. Most of our asset allocation publications have a monthly or quarterly frequency. Our financial market and political publications appear with either a weekly or bi-weekly frequency. Our selection of tools are updated each morning or once a week.

We offer a wide range of additional, tailor-made services, to match your needs. Ranging from speaking with our analysts on a regular basis to receiving tailor made research pieces.

If you manage money for private clients, they expect you to provide them with a periodical review of the markets and a clear vision of where the markets are likely to be heading in the coming quarter(s).

Writing this yourself can be a tedious task which diverts attention from your core activities. Why not save time and money by using ECR's white label solutions?

For this purpose we can make (a selection of) our reports available. Our views the performance of various financial markets and asset classes around the globe often serve as the ideal input needed to keep your clients up to date. Our reports are presented in an easy to read and non-technical manner. Therefore, it is seen by many of our clients in the investment industry as the ideal reading material for their private clients.

Our reports can be provided in such a manner that they can be easily adjusted to streamline with your own market views and investment decisions. You can do this, for example, by excluding irrelevant sections and/or adding information, also from other ECR publications, that is in line with your own strategy and outlook as well as including explanations about your own investment portfolios.

As this is always a tailor made solution we kindly ask you to contact Maria Thorvardardottir for more information.
