About us

Bringing you commodity prices, news and market analysis for more than 150 years

Who we are

Fastmarkets is the most trusted cross-commodity price reporting agency (PRA) in the agriculture, forest products, metals and mining, and energy markets.

Our price data, forecasts, and market analyses give our customers strategic advantage in complex, volatile, often opaque markets.

Our events provide immersive experiences to network, trade, and discuss the critical issues of the day.

Fastmarkets is owned by Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC, which is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a member of FTSE 250 share index. Euromoney has a diverse number of institutional shareholders. Fastmarkets also operate under the brand names of UM Paper and RISI in China.

The commodity markets we serve are the heart of today’s economy and critical to the transition to a low-carbon economy. That reality guides our purpose: to create transparent commodity markets to help our customers build a more sustainable world. Our work helps to create healthy commodity markets – markets that maintain supply-demand balances and create clear mechanisms for participants and investors – that are essential to fuel today’s financial performance and make the key investments to build a more sustainable world.
We marry a culture energized by a diversity of intellect, experiences, and perspective with a passion to make our customers successful.

We combine the authority of our expertise with a pragmatic view of how markets work to help our customers see clearly even in volatile and opaque markets.

We respect and trust each other as shown by our Working 3.0 model that allows each of us to bring our best selves to work each day and make a difference for each other and for the world.
