Is Goldman Sachs guilty of hiring and firing without a proper plan?

Next week we will know everything. On Tuesday, ex-Goldman CFO and current co-COO Harvey Schwartz is due to make a presentation about the future strategy of Goldman Sachs at the Barclays Global Financial Services Conference. In it, Schwartz will hopefully outline precisely what Goldman plans to do to avoid a repeat of its recent poor quarters.  We already have some […]

Banks inch towards Big Brother. The Goldman Sachs odd couple

Call it efficiency, cost-cutting or a gradual shift towards the nanny state in investment banks, but more institutions are using devices to keep tabs on their employees. Matthew Westerman, the head of HSBC’s global banking division reportedly introduced a system last year that tracks how its bankers use their time and how many deals they bring in. Barclays has installed heat […]

Ce managing director de Goldman rejoint un fonds géré depuis les tropiques

Will Morgan, managing director Equity Research chez Goldman Sachs, vient de quitter la banque d’investissement américaine pour un fonds de taille beaucoup plus modeste, sous la direction de Terry Smith, star du fund management. Voilà sans doute un nouveau signe que les analysts seniors se détournent de plus en plus des grandes banques au profit du buy-side. A l’origine de […]

Goldman Sachs in London pays 13% more than GS in Frankfurt

The German operation of Goldman Sachs – Goldman Sachs AG – just released its accounts for the 2016. If you’re among the 200 Goldman Sachs bankers facing relocation from London to Frankfurt thanks to Brexit, you might want to take note. Goldman Sachs AG is rather different to London-based Goldman Sachs International. Firstly, it’s tiny. While Goldman Sachs International is a behemoth […]

Time for Goldman Sachs to pay like Morgan Stanley?

Similarly, pay per head for the average employee at Goldman Sachs in London is high at around £485k ($633k) and Morgan Stanley […]

Goldman Sachs’ former 20-something trading guru has moved on again

It’s been a while since Jan Sramek worked at Goldman Sachs. Six years ago, the then 24-year-old trading prodigy, exam genius and youngest ever ‘rising star’ left Goldman Sachs, and quit banking altogether to go it alone. More recently, however, Sramek is between projects. After five years as co-founder and CEO of two start-ups in San Francisco, Sramek briefly joined […]

The best and worst banks to work for in London, NY and Asia?

Which are the best banks to work for in the world’s major financial cities? It’s a question that might be answered using the strength of a bank’s business in each location, or the amount it pays its people there. Glassdoor has, however, contrived a different approach: it asks verified employees to rate their experience of working for the bank on a scale […]

KKR has been stocking up with juniors from GS and JPM, again

The ‘Goldman Sachs of private equity’ has been hiring junior bankers in London. And guess what? It likes to hire from Goldman Sachs. Or, maybe…J.P. Morgan. KKR’s most recent London hire is drawn from Jamie Dimon’s stable. Risham Saif, an analyst who spent nearly two years on J.P. Morgan’s leveraged finance team, has just joined as analyst in London. Saif follows in the […]

J.P. Morgan and Goldman Sachs rejected by the 21 year-olds they’d love to hire. UBS fixed income build continues

Pity the world’s most prestigious investment banks, for their deep and often proclaimed love of STEM students is not requited. Those fickle young engineers with an urge to “make an impact” and work on cutting edge technologies are giving banks’ legacy systems a miss and going straight for tech firms, or car companies, or FMCG companies, or oil companies. – Anything, anything […]
