Goldman seeks New York-based VP

The investment bank's AIMS unit wants to hire someone to evaluate secondaries private equity deals with a focus on valuations.

Goldman Sachs Asset Management wants to hire a vice-president to focus on secondaries, co-investments and primaries as it deploys its $7.1 billion Vintage VII fund.

The role in the investment bank’s Alternative Investments & Manager Selection group involves conducting due diligence and evaluating secondaries private equity deals with a focus on asset-level valuation within portfolios, according to a job posting.

The successful candidate will present investment opportunities, co-ordinate the execution of investments across all deal types, and monitor the performance and risk profile of existing portfolio investments.

Applicants must have a minimum of five years’ relevant experience, sound investment judgement and outstanding numerical, analytical and valuation skills, among other requirements.

In November New York-based vice-president Jarid Colucci left Goldman to join UBS’s private funds group as an advisory professional, Secondaries Investor reported.

Goldman’s Vintage VII fund was the second-largest secondaries fund to hold final close last year after Strategic Partners‘ $7.5 billion Fund VII, according to PEI data.
