Risk Management at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs takes on risk as part of serving clients across multiple business areas and geographies. The firm manages these risks such that they are not in a form or amount that may materially impair (a) the firm’s capital and liquidity position; (b) the firm’s ability to generate revenues even in a stressed environment; or (c) damage the firm’s reputation.
The Risk Division is an independent organization that helps the firm identify, measure, monitor and control these risks. The division is headed by the Chief Risk Officer, who reports directly to the Chief Executive Officer, and to the Board. The Risk Management is heavily involved in establishing the risk appetite (i.e. how much of this risk is appropriate) for the firm and individual businesses.
Risk Engineering is responsible for providing the Chief Risk Officer, senior management, regulators, and other stakeholders with high quality risk information required to keep the firms activities within the defined risk appetite and comply with regulatory requirements. Risk Engineering (1) builds and maintains services to identify risks; (2) accesses internal and external data; (3) develops models; and, (4) leverages services, data and models to compute, review and publish risk deliverables.
