The strategy has four parts, according to the presentation. The investment bank wants to:
Offer a digital client experience
Build scalable infrastructure
Make room for innovation
To do so, Goldman Sachs is using 45% of its $4 billion engineering budget in 2019 on investment. The other 55% will be used to run the bank.
In the financial services sector, banks are making huge investments in technology. JPMorgan allocated $10.8 billion last year and has earmarked $11.4 billion for technology in 2019. Bank of America spent $10 billion on tech in 2018.
