This week, we speak with Julian C. Salisbury, chief investment officer of asset and wealth management at Goldman Sachs. He is also a member of the management committee, and Co-Chairs the Asset Management Investment Committees, which includes private equity, infrastructure, growth equity, credit, and real estate. Previously, he was head of the European Special Situations Group from 2008-13, and head of the Global Special Situations Group: 2013-19. He has worked in Goldman offices in London, Moscow, and now New York.
Salisbury brings a thoughtful, global perspective to managing assets and liabilities on behalf of institutional and individual clients around the globe. He explains how the firm has grown its business by offering a comprehensive set of solutions to clients.
He also explains why attracting, hiring, and retaining talent is the single most important aspect of running a large financial organization like Goldman Sachs Asset Management.
