Founded in 2000, CEC Capital Group (formerly known as China eCapital Corporation) is a leading private investment bank in China with a core focus on the TMT, consumer and healthcare sectors. Headquartered in Beijing with offices in Shanghai and Los Angeles, we provide M&A, private placement, and asset management services to our clients both in and outside of China. In October 2016, we acquired Seimer & Associates, a Santa Monica-based boutique investment bank.
During the 2015-16 period, our investment banking team completed close to 80 private placement and M&A transactions with total deal value exceeding RMB 90 billion ($13.2 billion).
To ensure that our clients receive the most comprehensive buy-side coverage, our ECM team have established close relationships with over 3,000 institutional investors in China, ranging from large conglomerates and A-share listed companies to established financial institutions, asset management firms and government-backed funds.
Leveraging our investment banking networks and capabilities, we are also building a unique asset management platform. We launched our first US dollar fund in December 2014, and are currently in the process of closing a RMB3 billion ($440 million) fund.
