Goldman Sachs simply named the smallest and most various class of companions since going public

Goldman Sachs has just named its smallest and most diverse class of partners since going public in 1999.

The company named 60 employees to the coveted rank of partner on Thursday, the highest title with the New York-based bank and a nod to its history as a private partnership.

Since its acquisition in 2018, CEO David Solomon has urged making the partnership a more exclusive club, employing fewer people and accelerating the exit of some partners. The bank named 69 partners in 2018 and 84 in 2016; It has between 400 and 450 partners in total.

While nearly half, or 47%, of this year's group were classified as diverse, a high water mark for the company, most of the partners named are men. The bank said 27% of new partners are women, 7% black, 5% Latinx, and 17% Asian.

The incoming class and overall partnership is also far less diverse than the goals the bank has set for its junior staff, which is to have half of all new analysts and entry-level employees hired in the US be women, 11% blacks and 14% Latinx.

Goldman is alone among the big banks when it comes to naming partners. The title has advantages: Partners earn a base salary of USD 950,000 and gain access to lucrative internal mutual funds.
