Goldman Sachs

In 2016, Goldman Sachs launched its first consumer product, a digital lending platform called Marcus that is aimed at helping people get out of debt. Though other fintech companies have forayed into making borrowing money at affordable rates more tenable, none have Goldman’s deep pockets. The financial company went public in 1999 and has weathered several tempests: insider trading, defrauding investors, and contributing to a massive financial crisis. And yet, it’s kicking off 2017 with stock prices nearing pre-crisis heights following the release of Marcus and a no-minimum savings account, making Goldman a formidable new player in the consumer banking market.
