Goldman Sachs Goes On A Hiring Spree

Goldman Sachs has long been an also-ran in the asset management business. But now it is looking to change that by launching an aggressive recruiting drive to build its asset management business while other firms pull back. 

Goldman is looking to hire up to 200 staff across all regions, the Financial Times is reporting.
