We have been made aware that there are external parties falsely claiming to carry out financial services on behalf of Goldman Sachs (including Goldman Sachs Asset Management International and Goldman Sachs International) in order to market fake investment products and to solicit monetary payments. These external parties may pose as Goldman Sachs through the use of fraudulent communications via email, instant messaging or phone, as well as through the use of fake brochures and other documents containing Goldman Sachs branding and logos.
The Financial Conduct Authority of UK has issued warnings about these fraudulent activities which can be found here and here.
It is important to know that any communication you receive from Goldman Sachs would only come from an @gs.com e-mail address and/or be found on the goldmansachs.com website. Further information regarding how you can protect yourself from fraudulent activity online and how you can contact us about this can be found on the Goldman Sachs Security page, available here.

While people have always been “social,” the digital age has transformed many of our interactions. “Social media” is a set of tools, features and functions that provide people with new forms of communication. Why is this disruptive? The ways that information can be learned and influence can be achieved have changed. The speed at which people can communicate is nearly instantaneous. Increasingly, financial advisors are participating in this social media revolution.
Social media provides a platform to share information, understand clients and build a community of people interested in hearing from you. Platforms such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter help people find your ideas and insights when they are looking for information about you.
To help identify the “So What?” in social media, we identify a number of themes that matter in your business. In the digital age, we believe social media can affect your practice in at least six distinct ways:
|1. Reputation||2. Productivity|
|3. Collaboration||4. Information
|5. Client Innovation||6. Relationships|
