About Us

Pacific Epoch is a trusted source of China investment research for institutional, private equity, and corporate clients. By combining proprietary data collection with on-the-ground surveys and expert analysis of government policy, Pacific Epoch provides partners with a more objective and predictive view of investment opportunities in China.


Founded in 2006 by a group with deep industry and diplomatic experience in China, Pacific Epoch was created to meet the growing and unmet demand for accurate information about the fundamental drivers behind China’s key sectors and companies. After the initial purchase of a Shanghai-based business intelligence platform to serve as its foundation, the company developed a series of industry-specific, proprietary data sets that monitor China’s high-growth sectors for institutional investors.

In 2008, Goldman Sachs invested in Pacific Epoch through its Hudson Street platform, which has helped accelerate the company’s growth. The company was purchased in 2011 by Pacific Crest Securities (www.pacific-crest.com).
