ECR Research was founded by Edward Markus. He has been following and commenting on the markets for almost 40 years and his first publication appeared in the early 1980’s. To this day he remains the driving force behind our views and opinions. For the past decades ECR has built up an excellent reputation as being one of the leading providers on global financial markets research. In our early years we quickly became internationally recognized for providing insightful observations on interest rate and currency developments, largely to corporate decision makers. Since then we have grown to be one of the most preferred sources, not only for CFO’s and treasurers, but for a wide range of investment professionals around the globe.
