Synopsis

The Partnership The Making of Goldman Sachs by Charles D. Ellis

Despite financial turmoil, Goldman Sachs remain the leading investment bank in their field. They are notorious for their unique management culture, unorthodox recruiting techniques - and for their secrecy. In The Partnership Charles Ellis reveals their story. With unparalleled access to the leadership of this famously close-knit firm, Ellis investigates the brilliant individuals who turned a marginal family business into a global powerhouse, weathering recession, scandal and disaster on the way. Among them are high school dropout and financial genius Sidney Weinberg, maverick reinventor John Whitehead, former US treasury secretary Hank Paulson and working-class New Yorker turned current CEO, Lloyd Blankfein. The Partnership reveals the shared values of intensive recruitment, discipline and talent that have tied Goldman Sachs's people together - and made it a survivor.
