The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. is an American multinational banking firm that engages in global investment banking,investment management, securities, and other financial services, primarily with institutional clients.

The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. is a leading global investment banking, securities and investment management firm that provides a wide range of financial services to a substantial and diversified client base that includes corporations, financial institutions, governments and individuals. Founded in 1869, the firm is headquartered in New York and maintains offices in all major financial centers around the world.

Goldman Sachs was founded in 1869 and is headquartered at 200 West Street in Lower Manhattan, New York City, with additional offices in other international financial centers.The firm provides asset management, mergers and acquisitions advice, prime brokerage, and underwriting services to its clients, which include corporations, governments, and individuals. The firm also engages in market making and private equity deals, and is a primary dealer in the U.S. Treasury security market.

 

Due to its involvement in subprime mortgages, Goldman Sachs was hit hard by the 2008 economic crisis,and was subsequently rescued as part of a massive U.S. government bailout.

Former Goldman executives who moved on to government positions include former U.S. Secretaries of the TreasuryRobert Rubin and Henry Paulson; European Central Bank President Mario Draghi; and former Bank of Canada Governor and current Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney.

In 2015, investment banking accounted for 21% of total company revenues.

Investment banking includes Financial Advisory (mergers and acquisitions, investitures, corporate defense activities,restructuring and spin-offs) and Underwriting (capital raises, public offerings, and private placements of equity and debt instruments).

Goldman Sachs is one of the leading M&A advisory firms, often topping the Thomson Financial league tables in sizes of transactions. The firm gained a reputation as a white knight in the mergers and acquisitions sector by advising clients on how to avoid unfriendly hostile takeovers. For a long time during the 1980s, Goldman Sachs was the only major investment bank with a strict policy against helping to initiate a hostile takeover, which increased the firm's reputation immensely among sitting management teams at the time.
