06 Apr 2020 - We are pleased to announce that Eastfort has recently engaged in a strategic cooperation with PRC Macro, a macro political advisory firm specializing in China. PRC Macro has been providing independent third-party research services related to Chinese economy, policy and capital markets to primarily foreign institutional investors. The firm produces deep dive policy research to assess outlook in China and applies their proprietary framework to evaluate the credit cycle. We believe that the cooperation will create value both by supplementing our own research capability as well as expanding the scope of research delivered to clients with enhanced analyses in a broader spectrum including the political segment.
