Goldman Sachs gatekeeper Ram Ramaswamy has left the firm after over 15 years, Citywire can reveal.
Ramaswamy was a vice president in the firm’s alternative investments and manager selection group.
He began his career at Goldman in 2001 and has since worked in manager research, portfolio construction, asset allocation, fund raising, risk management and investment product design.
He has covered a broad range of asset classes and vehicles including credit, commodities, macro, real assets, smart beta, alternative risk premium and quantitative equity.
A spokesman for Goldman declined to comment.
Ramaswamy’s departure follows that of fund selector and portfolio manager Jason Gottlieb who exited in August last year after 20 years with Goldman.
Gottlieb also ran the company’s alternatives fund of funds, the Goldman Sachs Multi-Manager Alternatives fund, alongside Kent Clark, Ryan Roderick, and Betsy Gorton, who continue to manage the portfolio.
