Goldman Sachs Group Inc. is pressing ahead with its new business strategy following an uneven second-quarter execution and a possible preview of difficulties approaching Chief Executive, David Solomon as he will hold the position of CEO.

The bank affirmed that Solomon will take control from Lloyd Blankfein, who has held the position of CEO for 12 years. Solomon is entrusted with executing a plan, to boost income by entering new businesses and reshaping the old ones.

The bank has vowed $5 billion more in yearly income, by developing its nestling consumer bank, pressing more from organizations like resource management, and changing the way it approaches trading.

Goldman Sachs Group Inc., once considered the shrewdest Wall Street trading house, has suffered, due to harder regulations since the financial emergency of 2007-2009 and market instability creasing revenues.

High quarterly profit

Goldman’s quarterly benefit topped investigator gauges, however, equities trading was levelled and higher fixed-income exchanging followed a feeble year period, with its shares down 10.6 percent, since the beginning of the year, but second-quarter profit rose to 44 percent by $5.98 per share price, compared with $3.95 per share. Total revenue rose around 19 percent to $9.4 billion.

Goldman Chief Financial Officer, Martin Chavez told analysts on the call that Solomon’s promotion was all part of the strategy.

He further added, “You’ll see here the emphasis on more recurring fee-based revenue and you’ve seen that in the results. The emphasis on the growth plan, on driving revenue and earnings growth,”

Chavez was also addressed on whether the bank was hoping to enhance diligence and transparency for newer organizations. As a reply, the bank gave a few points of interest on its new customer lending business, Marcus, for which it has enormous ambitions, including a planned launch in Britain. Marcus’ loan book at present sums $3.1 billion and it has a way long journey to compete with its rival.
