Ergo has been building and monitoring scenario-based probabilistic forecasts of major geopolitical and economic events for years; our track record is proof positive the future yields to research–but you have to do the work.

Stand on the shoulders of giants.

Ergo is able to punch above our weight because we learn from the best. We work hand in glove with the frontline experts who know an issue inside and out–from former top government officials and CEOs to people working on factory floors and drilling rigs–to generate the highest quality, highest integrity forecasts, analysis, and recommendations. Our management and advisors have been working together across the public and private sectors for decades, and jointly support our clients in relationships marked by exclusivity, discretion, and trust.

We take compliance seriously, prioritize ethical standards in our business, and thoroughly check our information sources to ensure they have direct knowledge of the subject. This helps us reduce the risk of spreading false information and improves the quality of our products.
