Fastmarkets RISI combines the power of Price Indices and Market Analytics for a global view of the forest product industry from a regional perspective.

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.

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.

Providing transparency into the global forest products market is Fastmarkets RISI’s core mission. Our services provide an objective view into markets that are often opaque and difficult to observe, thus helping the markets operate more efficiently.

In order to provide transparency, we must ourselves be explicit in the methods and assumptions on which our information is based. Knowing the context of our information can help you apply it to your needs.
