The BusinessWeek 50 Ranking

15

Goldman Sachs Group

GOLDMAN SACHS Group has a killer combination of businesses. It has a tour de force in its trading and investment business, which churned out $6.2 billion in pretax income in 2005. And Goldman’s investment banking advisory division, which pumped out $413 million, is one of the strongest in the world. With dealmaking expected to stay robust and Goldman’s traders thriving in commodities, fixed income, and equities alike, analysts are bullish on the company. But as Goldman and its clients invest more often together, its risk profile may rise. So far, though, shareholders don’t seem to mind.
