Goldman Sachs Investment Partners is a global multi-disciplinary hedge fund that employs a fundamental bottom-up research intensive approach, investing across many asset classes with a hedged mentality and low market exposures. The Fund is diversified and dynamic in its investment style and risk management efforts with expertise in a variety of strategies including long/short fundamental equity, convertibles, risk arbitrage/special situations, capital structure arbitrage, credit, volatility strategies, distressed securities and private/less liquid investments. Our investment style is multi-disciplinary, as opposed to multi-strategy, which allows our investment professionals to invest across the capital structure without constraints typically found in multi-strategy funds. Importantly, our approach is opportunistic, enabling us to be nimble enough to respond to opportunities as the markets present them. We complement our deep industry and geographic knowledge with extensive use of consultants to help quickly analyze opportunities when we think it may give us an additional edge. We employ state-of-the-art risk management models, including GS proprietary risk models, to assist in the monitoring and management of market risk to pinpoint and quantify sources of risk within a specific portfolio. The team consists of 65 professionals with a history extending back over three decades and maintains a global footprint with a presence in New York, Tokyo, London, Hong Kong, and Mumbai.
