业绩下滑,高盛将加大裁员力度

Lucinda Shen 2016年07月06日

为了削减成本,高盛甚至提高了员工末尾淘汰的比例。

 
 

今年第一季度让各大银行颇感失望。其后,高盛就一直在削减预算和裁员。

据彭博报道,有知情人士称高盛将从其美国和英国的销售以及交易员团队中再裁减60个职位。

彭博报道说,今年高盛在纽约已经裁减了至少353名员工。

由于市场环境低迷,石油价格走低,导致华尔街的银行们在2016年第一季度利润下降,这次裁员就发生在这一背景下。从更长远的角度来看,低利率环境、更严格的法规监管和电子交易的增多给银行带来的压力也与日俱增。

尽管高盛每年都会为了聘用新雇员而将业绩排在最末5%的员工解雇,但是在某些业务领域它不得不裁减更大比例的员工。据彭博报道,固定收益部门约有10%的员工被解雇——这个数字是往年的两倍。

与去年同期相比,高盛第一季度的收入下降了40%,这使得它连续第四个季度收益下降。

而高盛也正在告别多年来的摇钱树——交易业务,开始进入消费者借贷和储蓄领域。随着监管机构试图提高对银行的资本要求并降低它们对短期资金的依赖,新的领域将带给高盛更稳定的资金来源。

高盛还增加了合规部门和技术部门的职位,但是今年第一季度其员工总人数依然减少了300人,降至36,500人。

高盛拒绝对此进行评论。 (财富中文网)

Following a disappointing first quarter for large banks, Goldman Sachs -0.22% has been making cuts in the budget and laying off staff.

The investment bank is reportedly cutting another 60 positions from its sales and trading team in the U.S. and U.K., according to people familiar with the matter as reported by Bloomberg.

Goldman Sachs has already laid off at least 353 other people in New York this year, according to the Bloomberg report.

The most recent cuts come after Wall Street banks saw a drop off in profits during the first quarter of 2016 due to weak market conditions and low oil prices. In the longer term, banks have also been increasingly pressured by the low interest rate environment, stricter regulation, and movements to more electronic trading.

While Goldman Sachs generally sheds the bottom 5% of its staff annually in part to make room for new hires, the bank has been forced to make deeper cuts than usual in some areas of its business. About 10% of its fixed-income staff division has been laid off—double the amount in a usual year, Bloomberg reported.

Goldman’s revenue fell 40% in the first quarter as compared to a year earlier, making it the bank’s fourth consecutive quarter of lower earnings.

But the bank is also diversifying away from its money maker in years past—its trading business—by moving into consumer lending and deposits. That would also give Goldman a more stable base of funding as regulators seek to increase banks’ capital requirements and reduce their dependence on short-term funding.

The bank has also added positions in compliance and tech, nonetheless the company’s overall head count dropped 300 to 36,500, in the first three months of the year.

Goldman Sachs declined to comment.
