PCG was founded in 1979 by Christopher Bower to focus on building an institution that could produce customizable private equity products to better serve institutional investors. Since then, PCG has served as advisor to some of the largest institutional investors in the world.

PCG has been registered with the SEC since 1984 as an investment advisor.
