NEW YORK & TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pacific Epoch’s unique data product aggregates credit card transactions from more than 500 of Japan’s public companies and over 1,500 of its leading merchants to produce exceptionally accurate KPI forecasts.
The data—covering Japan-listed consumer brands, Internet companies, SAAS enterprises, and even multinational tech giants such as Google, Amazon, and Apple—are intended to give institutional investors an extra edge by providing them a more accurate picture of Japan investment opportunities as well as a richer understanding of how consumer behaviors there impact those opportunities, Pacific Epoch explained.
Pacific Epoch noted that investor interest in Japan—the world’s third-largest market (after the U.S. and China) and global leader in per-capita spending on mobile apps, among other things—is strong and likely to increase, making the Japan Credit Card data product a potentially indispensable asset.
A key feature of the subscription-based data product is its low rate of error for KPI forecasts like global revenue, Japan sales, APAC revenue and many more. Pacific Epoch said the error rate is within 1% to 3% of actual recorded KPIs.
The miniscule error rate is made possible in part by Pacific Epoch’s reliance on an impressively stable panel of 3.5 million credit cards, six years of history, and adherence to an extremely rigid compliance framework, said the company’s Chief Data Scientist Daniel Vlad.
Another key feature is the freshness of the transaction data. “Our data are updated daily,” Vlad said. “The updates are delivered in aggregated form at the company level and at the individual transaction level. Also, updates are delivered already organized for immediate use.”
Vlad said he believes the data product can help investors more easily and rapidly generate alpha.
“I’m very confident it will enable them to quite nimbly outperform market benchmarks thanks to its remarkably accurate KPI forecasting,” he opined.
