The leading global investment banking firm was established in 1869 by Marcus Goldman. He later incorporated his sons-in-law, Samuel Sachs, and Ludwig Dreyfuss. His son Henry would also join the business, and before long, the present name, Goldman Sachs & Co, was adopted.
With its headquarters in New York, the securities and investment management firm has offices around the world in major financial centers.
It offers its services to financial institutions, corporations, government institutions as well as high-net-worth individuals. The firm’s services include investing and lending, consumer and investment management investment banking, securities, and research.
The company also donates to charitable organizations through a donor-advised fund (DAF) called Goldman Sachs Gives.
Goldman Sachs Group Inc. is listed in the Asia Pacific, Americas, and Europe, Middle East, and some African markets. The firm has gained an incredible reputation in the mergers and acquisitions sector and plays a significant role in advising its clients about takeovers.
