CRU's reputation with customers across mining, metals and fertilizers is for integrity, reliability, independence and authority.
Our insights are built on a twin commitment to quality primary research and robust, transparent methodologies. You can rely on our work – our data, our views, our models – because we have built them ourselves, from the ground up, since our foundation in 1969.
The requirement for exclusive, first-hand knowledge has driven us to invest in a global team of analysts, the key to gaining a real understanding of critical, hard-to-reach markets such as China. CRU's people – whether delivering market outlooks, price assessments, cost analysis, consulting or conferences – focus on helping customers to make important business decisions.
Across a comprehensive range of commodities, we strive to provide customers with the best service and the closest contact – flexible, personal and responsive.
