2018 Asset Management & Servicing Winners



Goldman Sachs Asset Management Winner
The amount of outsourced CIO managed assets leaped in 2018. Middle and small market plans are looking high and low for OCIO programs that can help cut administrative costs without sacrificing investment expertise. Against this backdrop, the team at GSAM stands out.

GSAM takes a three-pronged approach to its OCIO service – first diagnosing the problem for a given plan, then constructing a custom multi-asset solution, and finally monitoring the success of the program. GSAM’s insight into the institutional landscape gives it the information it needs to construct customized multi-asset portfolios that can meet the needs of mega pensions down to small foundations.

The team is noted for its liability benchmark, which guides portfolio construction.

GSAM’s decision to merge its multi-asset and OCIO practices into a one-stop-shop is notable for its efficiency and alignment with investor goals. Looking ahead to 2019, GSAM has charted a growth plan that is designed to make it stand out in an increasingly crowded OCIO market.
