Our Story

Our company’s story started when Jeff Allan was working as the chief strategist for a Silicon Valley startup in San Francisco. As part of the job, Jeff became engrossed in the world of legislative and regulatory policy and quickly realized the enormous impact it had on entire sectors and any given company’s ability to do business. He created Echo Ridge in 2018 with the plan to explore different ways to leverage what he’d learned about regulatory policy and its impact on businesses. He returned to New Hampshire, which became the headquarters of Echo Ridge, locating the company in the state’s capital of Concord.

Our Mission

Echo Ridge’s mission is to enable our users to understand and leverage how legislative and regulatory changes will impact a broad range of financial market areas. This includes both opportunities and risks as they affect sectors and the companies that operate in those sectors. This is information that will empower the buy-side and sell-side, as well as hedge funds, PE, and VC. Likewise, it enables greater risk management by underwriting in commercial lending and insurance.

One Neural Network with Infinite Capabilities

Technology

Echo Ridge, together with the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth, developed the core of AI capabilities. Echo Ridge’s neural network, known as Ridgebase AQ, is patent-pending and one of the most sophisticated of its kind. It has been backtested with up to 97% accuracy predicting regulatory event probabilities, against 10 years of regulatory data. Employing unsupervised learning, it also continues to get smarter with every prediction.
