Private Lending Underwriting

In this capacity, PLU assesses, underwrites, documents, and monitors the credit and business risks incurred in loan transactions. The underwriting process includes a thorough analysis of the borrower’s financial condition, assessment of any collateral securing the loan, identification of risks and mitigants, among other items. Types of loans underwritten include commercial real estate, GS and third-party private equity/hedge funds (including co-invest facilities), aircraft, fine art, hobby properties, private company stock, yachts, marketable securities, etc.

PLU also ensures that the underwriting standards approved by the bank are adhered to in the loan approval process, with exceptions appropriately mitigated and documented. In addition, PLU participates in various business-related initiatives, such as new product development and systems/operational enhancements.

Private Lending is a part of GS Private Bank (PB), which is a business initiative of Goldman Sachs. PLU employees are employees of Goldman Sachs Bank USA.
