Fastmarkets RISI is made of up two separate business units: Fastmarkets RISI Indices and Fastmarkets RISI Analytics. Each group conducts research separately in order to maintain objectivity. However, Fastmarkets RISI applies consistent methodologies and processes across the organization so that data and analysis can be easily applied to customer research.
Fastmarkets RISI Indices publishes the most relied-upon price assessments in the pulp and paper products markets. Stakeholders throughout the industry use our indices in contracts worth tens of billions of dollars per year.
Fastmarkets RISI Analytics incorporates asset and market information to deliver critical insights into these markets. Combining forecasting with an integrated view on cost drivers provides a unique and consistent outlook across the industry.
Using Indices and Analytics together, our customers — including producers, buyers, traders, and financial actors — can follow the state of the current market and anticipate how it is likely to develop in the future.
