Goldman Sachs creates new super, pensions role

Goldman Sachs has demonstrated their focus on Australia and New Zealand's superannuation and pensions space with the creation of a new role.

Rory MacEwan will become head of superannuation and pensions funds for Goldman Sachs in Australia and New Zealand.

This is a newly created position for Goldman Sachs that will sit within their financial and strategic investors group.

Goldman Sachs' head of investment banking Christian Johnston said: "This appointment demonstrates our increased focus on these important clients."

MacEwan joined Goldman Sachs in 2013 and has been an executive director since 2015.

Prior to starting at Goldman Sachs, MacEwan worked in capital markets at the Royal Bank of Scotland Business in Sydney and was vice president of Forsyth Barr in Auckland.

He began his career at ABN AMRO Bank in Auckland.

The news of MacEwan's appointment coincides with that of a reduction in Goldman Sachs' global workforce. The firm already cut about 65 employees in its New York office last month.

In total, the firm currently employs more than 36,000 people worldwide.
