Risk

The Risk Division aims to effectively identify, monitor, evaluate, and manage the firm’s financial and operational risks — including reputational risk — in support of the firm’s strategic plan.

What We Do

Our Risk division develops comprehensive processes to monitor, assess, and manage the risk of expected and unexpected events that may have an adverse impact on the firm. Risk teams play a critical function for the firm, driving how the firm takes and manages risk. Risk professionals execute critical day-to-day risk management activities, lead projects and contribute to the ongoing advancement of a robust risk management program. Effective coordination with executive management, business units, control departments and technology is critical for success. 

We are at the forefront of the most recent engineering solutions, including cloud computing and big data, to better manage compute costs for the firm given increasing demands related to asset pricing and scenario generation.

How We’re Organized

"There is so much opportunity to find things that you never knew you could enjoy so much - they’re just there for you to discover.”

From ongoing feedback to diverse talent programs, we’re committed to empowering our people to drive their own development and expand their horizons.

We emphasize an apprenticeship culture in which our junior team members learn by working closely with seasoned professionals. We believe this is critical to developing the next generation of Goldman Sachs leaders.
