JL McGregor & Company[1] was an independent research firm that serviced institutional investors and corporate clients in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. The company changed its name to Pacific Epoch in the Spring of 2010.

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. Pacific Epoch now covers nine sectors and has over 90 employees across its offices in the U.S., Hong Kong, and Shanghai headquarters. The company’s China investment research is available to clients through its own website as well as industry platforms from Thomson Reuters, Capital IQ, FactSet, and TheMarkets.com.
