Banking Investment / January 19, 2016

The Investment Management Division, comprised of Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM) and Private Wealth Management (PWM), provides asset management and wealth management solutions to world-class institutions and individual investors globally. Today, we are one of the world’s leading asset managers, with over 700 investment professionals managing over $1 trillion in assets across many strategies.

Our goal is to help our clients navigate markets and meet their evolving investment objectives. This happens in many different ways:

    We offer clients proprietary research and market insights in an ever-changing macro environment, convening some of the world’s leading experts in premier investment forums to discuss relevant global trends.
    We provide clients with customized and innovative solutions that address their distinct needs. We partner with clients in over 120 countries around the world, managing assets in every major asset class.
    We design investment products to express new ideas and structure portfolios that seek to capitalize on market inefficiencies to help clients meet their goals.
    We identify market opportunities and invest on behalf of our clients within a world-class risk framework.


Within the Investment Management Division, many of our people serve in multi-function capacities but fundamentally, our business can be broken down into two main functions: Client Solutions and Investment Strategies.

Client Solutions

Our Client Solutions professionals partner with large pension plans, sovereign wealth funds, central banks, insurance companies, financial institutions, endowments, foundations, individuals and family offices to develop investment strategies and identify the opportunities that shape their portfolios and long-term investment goals.

  • Private Wealth Management (PWM) secures, develops and manages relationships with high-net-worth individuals, their families, family offices and select foundations and endowments.
  • Institutional Business works to develop and execute thoughtful investment solutions for our diverse client base which includes corporate and public pension funds, foundations and endowments, insurers, financial institutions and governments.
  • Third Party Distribution (TPD) primarily targets individuals through financial intermediaries including wire-houses, regional broker-dealers, banks, insurance companies and RIAs.
