Our approach


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.
