NEW YORK, Feb 17 ― Goldman Sachs has officially launched an online platform for small investors in its latest step to build out its fledgling consumer business.
Under the “Marcus Invest” platform, investors with as little as US$1,000 (RM4,047) can tap into Goldman’s asset allocation services, purchase exchange traded funds and take other investment decisions with a 0.35 per cent advisory fee.
The venture’s objective is to bring “the investing expertise of Goldman Sachs directly to mass affluent customers,” Chief Executive David Solomon said last month in a conference call.
The Wall Street heavyweight also has plans for a new digital checking offering for later this year, Solomon said.
Marcus has grown over the last five years, but still represents a much smaller business than Goldman’s cash cow segments in corporate finance and trading.
In 2020, Goldman’s consumer banking had US$1.2 billion in revenues, about 2.7 per cent of total revenues. ― AFP
