Our reputation for robustness and transparency, and the fact that we follow the internationally recognised IOSCO principles on high quality price assessment, mean that our customers can rely on CRU. We publish detailed specifications of all our price assessments and comply with the IOSCO code of best practice.

We base assessments on a strong and transparent methodology, with trained price assessors and expert analysts working together to ensure prices are unbiased and accurate. If you have prices embedded in contracts you can trust CRU's team and methodology.

An example of CRU’s strength in prices is the Mid West Hot Rolled Coil price, which is the established and dominant index used by 85% of North American buyers and sellers who use any benchmark. However CRU has a strong position in many commodities including bulk ferroalloys, chrome, aluminium, minor metals, stainless steel, fertilizers and other finished steel markets. In total CRU publishes more than 500 price assessments.

CRU has invested in a global team of price specialists and analysts who contribute to our price assessments, including staff in London, Beijing, Mumbai, Pittsburgh, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Santiago.
