Goldman Sachs hires non-traditional analysts for equity fund

Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM) and GQG Partners have hired investigative journalists and forensic accountants to a global equity investment team.

They say the team of professionals from traditional and non-traditional backgrounds will “foster a culture of debate and diverse insights”.

The two firms have launched the Goldman Sachs GQG Partners Global Equity Portfolio, a long-only vehicle.

The portfolio – benchmarked to the MSCI ACWI (Total Return Net) index – aims to uncover high-quality opportunities around the globe.

“We believe that including non-traditional perspectives in our bottom-up approach allows us to see things other investors may miss, a belief reinforced by experience successfully navigating two 20%+ drawdowns and a 50%+ drawdown in the global equity market,” said Rajiv Jain, chief investment officer of GQG and the portfolio’s manager.

Jain has helped manage GSAM client assets for nearly a decade, said Nick Phillips, head of international third-party distribution at GSAM.

The portfolio is buying shares of between 35-70 companies with sustainable long-term growth prospects in developed and emerging markets.

It is a sub-fund of the Ucits-regulated Goldman Sachs Funds Sicav in Luxembourg and is offered to institutional and retail investors across various European countries.

GQG Partners is a global and emerging market investor, headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
