Goldman Sachs & Co. (Europe)

THE SCOOP

Wall Street's No. 1 dealmaker 

Goldman Sachs provides a wide range of investment banking, securities, and investment management services to a substantial and diversified client base that includes corporations, financial institutions, governments, and high-net-worth individuals. Widely considered the most prestigious name in investment banking, Goldman is headquartered in New York, with further offices in London, Frankfurt, Tokyo, Hong Kong and other major financial centers around the world. Founded in 1869, the venerable firm has many "firsts" to its credit. Goldman played a major role in establishing the IPO markets in the early 1900s and, five decades later, was the first firm to focus on the institutional sales market. Goldman was also the first investment bank to create a dedicated M&A group, negotiate a trade on the New York Stock Exchange, and use emerging computer technology to distribute its research reports electronically. More recently, in the wake of the financial crisis of 2007 and 2008, the bank received some less than stellar press for some alleged dubious dealings. Even so, Goldman is still the top dealmaker on Wall Street. The firm ranked No. 1 in U.S. announced M&A deal volume, EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) announced M&A deal volume, and worldwide announced M&A deal volume for 2012. It also ranked No. 1 in global equity and equity-related offerings, global common stock, and EMEA equity and equity-related offerings in 2012. Goldman Sachs is led by Lloyd Blankfein, its chairman and CEO, and employs 31,700 people worldwide.
