The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. operates as an investment banking, securities, and investment management company worldwide. The company provides a range of financial services to a client base that includes corporations, financial institutions, governments, and high-net-worth individuals. As of December 2013, the company had offices in approximately 30 countries. Segments The company operates through four business segments: Investment Banking, Institutional Client Services, Investing & Lending, and Investment Management. INVESTMENT BANKING This segment serves corporate and government clients around the world. The company provides financial advisory services and helps companies raise capital to strengthen and improve their businesses. It intends to develop and maintain long-term relationships with a global group of institutional clients, including governments, states, and municipalities. Financial Advisory Financial Advisory includes strategic advisory assignments with respect to mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, corporate defense activities, risk management, restructurings, and spin-offs. In particular, the company helps clients execute large, complex transactions for which it provides multiple services, including acquisition financing and cross-border structuring expertise. Financial Advisory also includes revenues from derivative transactions directly related to these client advisory assignments. The company also assists its clients in managing their asset and liability exposures and their capital. In addition, it might provide lending commitments and bank loan and bridge loan facilities in connection with its advisory assignments. Underwriting The other core activity of this segment is helping companies raise capital to fund their businesses. As a financial intermediary, the company’s job is to match the capital of its investing clients — who aim to improve the savings of various people — with the needs of the company’s corporate and government clients — who need financing to generate growth, create jobs, and deliver products and services. The company’s underwriting activities include public offerings and private placements, including domestic and cross-border transactions, of a range of securities and other financial instruments. Underwriting also includes revenues from derivative transactions entered into with corporate and government clients in connection with its underwriting activities. Equity Underwriting The company underwrites common and preferred stock and convertible and exchangeable securities. Debt Underwriting The company underwrites and originates various types of debt instruments, including investment-grade and high-yield debt, bank loans and bridge loans, and emerging- and growth-market debt, which might be issued by corporate, sovereign, municipal, agency issuers, and others. In addition, the company underwrites and originates structured securities, which include mortgage-related securities and other asset-backed securities. INSTITUTIONAL CLIENT SERVICES This segment serves the company’s clients who come to the firm to buy and sell financial products, raise funding, and manage risk. This segment makes markets and facilitates client transactions in fixed income, equity, currency, and commodity products. In addition, the company makes markets in and clear client transactions on major stock, options and futures exchanges worldwide. The company’s clients are primarily institutions that are professional market participants, including investment entities whose customers include individual investors investing for their retirement, buying insurance or putting aside surplus cash in a deposit account. The company, through its global sales force, maintains relationships with its clients, receiving orders and distributing investment research, trading ideas, market information and analysis. As a market maker, the company provides prices to clients globally across various products in all major asset classes and markets. This segment and the company’s other businesses are supported by its Global Investment Research division, which as of December 2013, provided
