GSAM Private Credit - Asset Finance - Associate - London
A career with Goldman Sachs Asset & Wealth Management (GSAM) 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, GSAM 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.
GSAM invests both the firm's own capital and capital raised from outside investors in corporate equity and debt, real estate equity and debt, asset-based equity and debt, growth equity and infrastructure assets world-wide. Our business operates on a global platform, and we are one of the largest managers of private capital globally.
GSAM Private Credit is one of the world's largest alternative credit investing platforms with approximately $110bn of AUM and investment professionals based in the US, Europe, Asia and Australia. GSAM Private Credit is a dynamic platform with significant cross-pollination across strategies - Direct Lending (middle market and large cap performing credit), Hybrid Capital, Asset Finance and IG Corporate and Infrastructure Credit.

AWM Credit - Asset Finance
Asset Finance ("AF") is a growth area within Private Credit, focusing on financings backed by physical and/or financial collateral. AF provides flexible funding solutions across the capital structure, engaging in a broad range of asset-based strategies that include RE financings/ specialty mortgages, consumer and SME loans, fund financing, trade receivables, hard asset financings and more.

The investment ambitions of our clients may be simply risk or return focused, but often also are informed by ALM, accounting, or regulatory capital considerations. We work closely to identify and align with these, and make use of structured finance techniques to help them to efficiently express their positioning via tailored investment solutions. As such, our asset focus is broad and can vary widely both in terms of investment risk (underlying exposures and objectives) and delivery (broad range of fund/ managed account products)
