Asset & Wealth Management

A career with Goldman Sachs Asset & Wealth Management is an opportunity to help clients across the globe realize their potential, while you discover your own. As part of one of the world’s leading asset managers with over $2 trillion in assets under supervision, you can expect to participate in exciting investment opportunities while collaborating with talented colleagues from all asset classes and regions, and building meaningful relationships with your clients. Working in a culture that values integrity and transparency, you will be part of a diverse team that is passionate about our craft, our clients, and building sustainable success. Bringing together traditional and alternative investments, Goldman Sachs Asset & Wealth Management provides clients around the world with a dedicated partnership and focus on long-term performance. As primary investment area within Goldman Sachs, we provide investment and advisory services for pension plans, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies, endowments, foundations, financial advisors and individuals.


Within Goldman Sachs Asset Management, the Quantitative Investment Strategies (QIS) team manages over $96 billion across a variety of mandates including institutional portfolios, high net worth accounts, and mutual funds, using sophisticated quantitative models that have been developed in an innovative research environment. The team is one of the largest quantitative managers in the world and is recognized as an industry leader in quantitative portfolio management techniques. The team manages exposures to global stock, bond, currency, and commodity markets to generate excess return, or “alpha”, for client portfolios. The team also manages a platform of advanced beta strategies, which includes various smart beta and hedge fund replication strategies. As one of the longest-running quantitative teams in the industry, QIS has developed a strong reputation for innovation, excellence, teamwork, and camaraderie.


We are looking for a candidate to join the Client Portfolio Management (CPM) team with QIS. This team operates within the growing intersection between technology and investment management and serves as the public face of the QIS business.

To give you an idea of our work, we have a dynamic role where we split our time between two main areas: client-facing work (which includes pitching strategies to clients, client reporting, and producing client-specific analysis) and product strategy (which includes programming to conduct research for new quantitative strategies and for data analytics / visualization). However, our team has many diverse skillsets, and many members will specialize on different aspects of the role depending on their unique strengths.

The ideal candidate is passionate about solving quantitative, analytical, and programming challenges, and also passionate about communicating with and working alongside clients (both prospective and existing) to produce solutions to these challenges.

  • Identify client solutions / products to market
  • Write code to solve analytical problems and produce analysis on markets and investment strategies
  • Work with team members to conduct research and develop investment products
  • Work closely with sales force and prepare relevant marketing materials (Powerpoint / Excel)
  • Conduct competitive analyses, peer group analyses, and overall market research

Traits of candidates who excel in this role:

  • Quantitative orientation with a background in a STEM field (including engineering, mathematics, computer science, mathematical economics, etc)
  • Computer programming background (familiarity with a programming language such as Python, Matlab, Java, C / C++)
  • Excellent verbal, presentation and written communication skills
  • Thrives in a team-oriented and collaborative environment
  • Strong interest in the financial markets and good investment sense / commercial instinct
  • Flexibility and confidence to take on many different types of problems and tasks
  • Outstanding attention to detail, both quantitatively and aesthetically
  • Experience and background with quantitative techniques and investment strategies would be a plus
  • Organized and deadline driven
  • Ability to guide new ideas from a concept to finish
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced environment and think clearly under pressure
